Chicago Bulls

  1. Joakim Noah doesn't want to be traded

    Sep 23, 2010, 9:26 AM EDT

    Be part of a powerhouse team that could be very good in Chicago or be part of a rebuilding process in Denver where you will forever be “the guy we traded the best player in franchise history for.” Shockingly, Joakim Noah is partial to the first option. Still he went to the old but true…

  2. Nuggets asking the world for Carmelo, Nets pushing to make it happen

    Sep 23, 2010, 1:05 AM EDT

    The Chicago Bulls talked with Denver, but the Nuggets demanded that Joakim Noah be part of the deal. So it fell apart. The New Jersey Nets talked to Denver, but the Nuggets demanded that Brook Lopez be part of the deal. So it fell apart. Sensing a pattern here? Denver is listening to offers for…

  3. NBA Season Preview: Chicago Bulls

    Sep 22, 2010, 1:41 PM EDT

    Last season: 41-41, same as it ever was with Vinny Del Negro Head Coach: Tom Thibodeau, the defensive guru from the Boston Celtics gets his first head coaching gig. He’s earned it, but this is not a soft landing sprt — there are expectations. Key Departures: Kirk Hinrich, Brad Miller, Hakim Warrick Key Additions: Carlos…

  4. Carmelo Anthony on the rumors: "i just want to play ball"

    Sep 22, 2010, 12:45 PM EDT

    Whatever is swirling through the media, through back channels and into NBA front offices, Carmelo Anthony is going to come out at Nuggets camp and say all the right things. He’s got that down. He’ll do it to microphones next week, but he went to twitter and made these comments Wednesday night: Everyone has there…

  5. Chicago trading Joakim Noah for Carmelo Anthony? Bad idea.

    Sep 22, 2010, 12:01 PM EDT

    Who knows who put this rumor out there — Denver staffers trying to up the ante, Carmelo Anthony people trying to push the deal forward — but it is the debate around the league: Should Chicago throw Joakim Noah into the deal to bring Carmelo Anthony to Chicago? No. No. A thousand times no. Let’s…

  6. Carmelo Anthony renews push for trade to New York or Chicago; Denver in no rush

    Sep 22, 2010, 8:22 AM EDT

    If you’re wondering why so many — and at times conflicting — rumors are coming out about the Carmelo Anthony trade situation in the last few days, here’s your answer. Anthony and his CAA team (led by agent Leon Rose) have stepped up to pressure a move before training camp starts, according to ESPN. And…

  7. Brian Scalabrine gets make good deal with Chicago

    Sep 21, 2010, 9:48 PM EDT

    We tried to prepare you for this Celtics fans — the Brian Scalabrine era in Boston has come to an end. The team’s victory cigar at the end of its bench has signed a make-good deal with the Chicago Bulls and will attend their camp, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo. This came about because…

  8. Carmelo Anthony rumors update (please bring plenty of salt)

    Sep 21, 2010, 8:32 PM EDT

    There are almost more rumors about Carmelo Anthony out there than there are people laughing at David Hasselhoff after last night. Almost. We’re going to talk about some key ones, but first we start with the trade rumor primer, just as a reminder: Every leaked rumor has a motive behind it. Nobody at this stage…

  9. USA Basketball reached out to Joakim Noah, but he wants to play for France

    Sep 20, 2010, 10:37 AM EDT

    With the thin front line USA Basketball this summer — a lot of top names said no then Amar’e Stoudemire, Brook Lopez and David Lee couldn’t play — Jerry Colangelo was calling everyone and anyone. JaVale McGee got multiple chances to make the team. Lamar Odom was the starting center. They were looking around. That…

  10. Brian Scalabrine to the Bulls? It could happen.

    Sep 18, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT

    We last saw Brian Scalabrine cheering on the Celtics from the bench. This season he could be doing it for the Chicago Bulls. Scalabrine and the Bulls have talked this summer and he still could land a spot, according to Sam Smith writing at Bulls.com. And there actually is some logic here. The Bulls have…

  11. Quote of the day: Paul Pierce on the look in Tom Thibodeau's eyes

    Sep 17, 2010, 11:20 AM EDT

    “Coach Thibs has square eyeballs from watching so much videotape.” –Boston’s Paul Pierce, on the work habits of former Celtics assistant and now Chicago Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau. From Bulls.com.

  12. Talking beards with Boozer

    Sep 17, 2010, 10:44 AM EDT

    Training camps don’t start for two weeks, games for more than a month, so we’ve got some time. We can focus on the important things. Like personal hygene. And beards. The Bulls Carlos Boozer knows his sh… stuff about beards, so the people from Dime Mag sat down with him and talked about it. And…

  13. Dampier has a decision to make, and he wants it to come with a ring. And money.

    Sep 15, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Erick Dampier will be a free agent, so he told the Miami Herald what he is required to say as a free agent — it’s about winning. Where the big, serviceable center and new best free agent on the market lands will be about chasing a ring. So the Wolves are out — they admitted…

  14. Chicago counting on chemistry to make them elite

    Sep 13, 2010, 5:09 PM EDT

    Kyle Korver thinks the Chicago Bulls need to be mentioned in the top tier of the East, with Miami and Boston (and maybe Orlando, we like them there but you can argue that one). Most people have them as good but a notch below. How is Chicago going to get to that elite level, you…

  15. Michael Reinsdorf, son of owner Jerry, takes over as Bulls COO

    Sep 13, 2010, 2:52 PM EDT

    Not a real shock here, Michael Reinsdorf started to take on more of a role with the Bulls in the last couple years, but now it is official. The team has announced that Michael — the son of owner Jerry Reinsdorf — will take over as team President and COO of the Bulls. This is…

  16. Derrick Rose isn't holding his breath for Carmelo Anthony

    Sep 11, 2010, 9:45 AM EDT

    The Bulls remade their team this summer, but every time a big name comes up that isn’t a point guard, their name pops into the trade rumors. A contending team in a big market tends to attract a lot of attention, and the situation with Carmelo Anthony is no exception. But how does the Bulls’…

  17. Or maybe, rather than trade him, the Bulls are trying to lock up Joakim Noah

    Sep 10, 2010, 8:59 AM EDT

    This makes a lot more sense. The Chicago Bulls are not looking to trade Joakim Noah but are close to reaching an extension with him on his rookie deal, according to Marc Stein of ESPN. The two sides have been talking for weeks and are closing in on a deal that would keep Noah a…

  18. Report: Bulls considering adding Joakim Noah in Carmelo Anthony talks

    Sep 9, 2010, 5:25 PM EDT

    The Denver Nuggets are not talking about trading Carmelo Anthony right now. Calls are politely being turned away. They want their chance to keep him first. But a good rumor is like Freddy Krueger, it will not die. The Chicago Bulls are considering trying to pry Anthony out of Chicago by including Joakim Noah in…

  19. Tom Thibodeau lures Adrian Griffin out of Milwaukee to serve as his assistant coach

    Sep 8, 2010, 12:07 PM EDT

    Adrian Griffin is just two years removed from playing in the NBA, but he already has coaching experience and is about to become one of the top assistants for an Eastern Conference contender. According to Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal-Times, Griffin will make the move from Milwaukee, where he was a bit lower on…

  20. Nate McMillan has plans for Rudy Fernandez in his training camp. What trade demand?

    Sep 7, 2010, 11:39 AM EDT

    Very vague trade speculation continue to float around Rudy Fernandez. The Bulls have some interest. The Knicks have some interest but they and Portland are not talking.  Nothing seems to be moving on that front. Basically, despite Rudy Fernandez throwing a tantrum and threats of a holdout by his agent, he is still a Trail…

  21. Carlos Boozer's expectations for Bulls: "A championship"

    Sep 2, 2010, 9:53 AM EDT

    The Miami Heat are the trendy choice, what with three of the best players on the planet on one team. The Lakers have the Trophy. Boston had it a couple years ago. Orlando has been on the cusp recently. But Carlos Boozer likes how his Chicago Bulls look and think they should be in the…

  22. Joakim Noah golfing, not exactly the tradtional PGA-approved image

    Sep 1, 2010, 11:25 AM EDT

    Joakim Noah showed up for the annual Chicago Bulls charity golf tournament. My guess, he did not get an invitation to the country club after this outing. Based on his father, our guess is tennis is more his country club sport of choice, anyway. (Hat tip to Matt from Blog-a-Bull for finding this one.)

  23. Bulls to give Scottie Pippen a statue outside United Center. Yes, same size as Jordan's.

    Aug 25, 2010, 5:33 PM EDT

    It’s been a good month to be Scottie Pippen. First, he gets to bask in the spotlight of the Hall of Fame inductions, without the looming shadow of Michael Jordan in his way. Now, he gets his own statue outside the United Center. It will be unveiled at some point near the end of this…

  24. Luol Deng's emotional trip home to the Sudan

    Aug 25, 2010, 3:53 PM EDT

    You know Luol Deng is a Chicago Bull and maybe as the star of Great Britain’s national team in basketball. But he was born in war-torn Sudan. One of the lucky refugees to get out alive and to get a real chance somewhere. He went back to the Sudan recently, along with a crew from…

  25. Carlos Boozer sees the Bulls right there with the Heat, East elite

    Aug 24, 2010, 4:18 PM EDT

    Carlos Boozer is one of those guys shifting the power in the East. He has gone from a loaded Jazz team that couldn’t quite get past the Lakers in the West to a loaded Bulls team that nobody thinks can get past Boston or Miami in the East. Boozer doesn’t see it that way; he…
