  1. The Inbounds: How to avoid the luxury tax and influence the playoffs, a Chicago Bulls story

    Aug 2, 2012, 9:00 AM EST

    76ers Bulls Basketball

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love. Enjoy. There’s something obscenely obvious in the fact that we, the media (but not really because most NBA media think Bird…

  2. Bulls owner was willing to go into luxury tax to get Pau Gasol… generous bajillionaire he is

    Mar 24, 2012, 4:00 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns

    So that Pau-Gasol-to-Chicago rumor before the dealing fell apart pretty quick because, to be honest, the idea of anyone saying “Heck yeah, we want Carlos Boozer!” right now is like the joke in a trailer for one of those teen romcoms. You know it’s coming and though it is technically humorous, it’s not actually funny.…

  3. Jerry Reinsdorf says the Bulls will pay to win. We’ll see.

    Dec 1, 2011, 8:20 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    If you want the model of how to win without spending like Mark Cuban, you look at the Bulls. Even during the Jordan era owner Jerry Reinsdorf was a guy who won as cheaply as he could. He does not like to pay the luxury tax. Right now, the Bulls are doing that again —…

  4. New “Derrick Rose Rule” will make a few rookies rich(er)

    Nov 27, 2011, 11:03 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    Players on their rookie deals remain one of the great values to owners — they get players who often can contribute a lot but at a fraction of the salary of a veteran who does the same thing. Those rookie deals remain untouched in the new collective bargaining agreement. Except for one change — if…

  5. Bulls owner predicts four championships for Derrick Rose

    No pressure Derrick. It’s just that the owner of the Bulls Jerry Reinsdorf — who paragraphs before admitted he thought they might win one title with Michael Jordan back in the day — told the Chicago Sun Times you could win four. ‘‘If you don’t see something special in Derrick Rose, then you’re blind,’’ Reinsdorf…

  6. Derrick Rose, Michael Beasley and the importance of pre-draft interviews

    When we talk about draft picks we discuss athleticism, outside shot, basketball IQ, college success, vertical leap and the other things we as fans can see and measure. But maturity and passion for the game and the craft matter more in how a player develops. Competitiveness matters a lot. We can’t measure it, and a…

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

    Sep 13, 2010, 2:52 PM EST

    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…

  8. Reinsdorf: Six Bulls titles would not have happened without Pippen

    Aug 6, 2010, 9:02 PM EST

    Scottie Pippen was a fantastic player. Scottie Pippen deserves to be in the Hall of Fame, as will formally happen next week. Pippen deserves the accolades that will come his way. But it’s hard to read what Bulls owner Jerry Riesndorf said about Pippen to Bulls.com without feeling there is another slight toward Michael Jordan…

  9. Joakim Noah is getting richer this week

    Jul 5, 2010, 4:01 PM EST

    Joakim Noah is not a free agent this summer. Guy is in the middle of his rookie deal, the Bulls could extend him right now, but they are focusing on bigger fish. Which is just fine with Noah, he keeps getting richer just sitting there doing nothing. That’s because the Bulls are using him to…

  10. LeBron in Chicago: The Jerry Reinsdorf question

    Jun 28, 2010, 11:17 AM EST

    LeBron to Chicago, with Chris Bosh. Teamed with Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah. A force in the NBA for the next decade. That is unquestionably how it is going down, right? Except, there are a few questions. Starting with: Would Bulls onwer Jerry Reinsdorf be willing to pay the price for it? Does LeBron James…

  11. Today's coaching carousel: Hawks interview Mark Jackson, Bulls chase after Thibodeau

    May 29, 2010, 1:34 PM EST

    Mama, their goes that wanna-be coach. Mark Jackson — the former All-Star point guard and current NBA analyst for ABC/ESPN — is getting an interview for the Atlanta Hawks head-coaching job, according to FanHouse. The Hawks waited until Jackson was done with his responsibilities covering the Eastern Conference Finals before conducting the interview. (Off topic…

  12. Bulls John Paxson apologizes for incident with Vinny Del Negro

    May 4, 2010, 1:51 PM EST

    Speaking publicly for the first time since the March 30 incident, Bulls Vice President John Paxson apologized to Vinny Del Negro, the Bulls organization and its fans. “I hold myself accountable, and responsible,” Paxson said. “I am not at all proud of how I handled the situation.” The situation was after a game against the…

  13. Vinny Del Negro is out. Now Bulls: Who you got that's better?

    May 4, 2010, 1:11 PM EST

    We’re going to take Bulls General Manager Gar Forman at his word. He stuck with his themes at the press conference this morning where he talked about the firing of Vinny Del Negro. (I watched the conference online). Forman deserves the break, he was thrown out to the wolves to explain this. He was the…

  14. Vinny Del Negro still appears to be on chopping block, but Bulls taking their sweet time

    May 3, 2010, 9:16 AM EST

    Sunday — maybe over a nice brunch that included crab omelets and mimosas — Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro and team owner Jerry Reinsdorf sat down and talked. Vinny made his case, which should have included the sentence, “You gave me a crap roster that kept getting injured and I still got you to the…
