    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    Last season: The Bulls went 45-37, putting together an impressive regular season that included the victory that snapped the Heat’s 27-win streak. Joakim Noah, Luol Deng and Jimmy Butler each got Defensive Player of the Year votes as Tom Thibodeau continuously reinforces a culture in Chicago. In the playoffs, the hard-nosed Bulls beat the more-talented…

    Chicago Bulls shooting guard Hamilton questions a call against the Charlotte Bobcats during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Charlotte

    At this point, the free agent cupboard is pretty bare, and a number of teams have filled out their rosters anyway. Let’s just be honest — if you’re still on the free agent market there is a reason. Still, there are a few teams still looking to add player 14/15 to the roster off minimum…

  4. Who is left on free agent market? Pickings getting slim but a few good players out there

    Brandon Jennings

    Free agency has been open for more than two weeks now and most of the big names are gone, not just Dwight Howard but also guys like Andrew Bynum, Mike Dunleavy, Al Jefferson, Andrei Kirilenko, Quentin Richardson, Nick young and more. But there are a few name guys left on the market. Guys with flaws…

    For the second time in three years, an NBA team is paying Richard Hamilton to go away. The Pistons’ cap obligation to pay Hamilton a $14.5 million buyout over the last two seasons just ended, but now the Bulls will pay Hamilton $1 million not to play for them next season. Ken Berger of CBSSports.com:…

  7. Rip Hamilton: “I was just dumbfounded at the situation”

    May 16, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Joakim Noah, Richard Hamilton

    Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau was looking for answers. No Derrick Rose, no Luol Deng, no consistent offense, he needed points. He finally got some Wednesday night from Richard Hamilton (but you can call him Rip) — 15 points in 35 minutes. He was a team best +12 on the night. The veteran who had been…

  8. Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner: 76ers should hire Michael Curry

    May 9, 2013, 3:47 PM EDT

    Jrue Holiday, Evan Turner

    Though Doug Collins’ departure from the 76ers was framed as his decision, it seemed Philadelphia wasn’t exactly heartbroken to see him go. But the three-year Collins era with the 76ers was a relative success. They made the postseason for consecutive years for the first time since 2008 and 2009 and a playoff series for the…

  9. Deron Williams dunks, Nets throttle limping Bulls

    Apr 20, 2013, 11:43 PM EDT

    BKN-BULLS-NETS

    Deron Williams made a pair of free throws as the Barclays Center fans chanted “M-V-P!” On the Bulls’ next possession, Williams stole the ball, sprinted down the court and – the same player who didn’t dunk until April – delivered a reverse slam. More than we’ve realized, this is a different Deron Williams. Frankly, and…

  10. Gibson sprains knee, Bulls lose to Wizards. Not a good night for Chicago.

    Apr 2, 2013, 11:10 PM EDT

    Taj Gibson

    If the Bulls had designs on moving out of the six seed — and you know Tom Thibodeau wants to win every game with a white hot passion — this was not a good night. First, the Bulls fell to the Wizards 90-86 in a game where Chicago had no answer for John Wall (27…

  11. Dwyane Wade will suit up, play against Bulls Wednesday

    Mar 27, 2013, 4:27 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade

    Well, one superstar will be back on the court Wednesday. After missing a couple games resting a sore knee, Dwyane Wade will be back Wednesday night in Chicago when the Heat go for win 28 in a row against the Bulls. Dwyane Wade said "I'll give it a go" tonight against the Bulls. Wade went…

  12. Report: Wizards expected to offer John Wall max extension

    Mar 19, 2013, 12:01 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Washington Wizards

    Has John Wall earned a max contract extension? Apparently the Wizards front office thinks he has and will offer one come July. Wall is eligible for a contract extension this summer and it was always likely the Wizards were going to offer one, the question was for how much? Wall said recently he thought he…

  15. Report: Bulls considering Rip Hamilton move to save money

    Feb 19, 2013, 1:08 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks

    The Chicago Bulls have never paid the NBA luxury tax. This year would be the first year ever… unless they make a trade. The theory goes that the clock is starting for the repeater tax so if the Bulls are just a little over the tax now they shouldn’t go over it for this season.…

  16. The smaller deals: A trade rumor update as deadline nears

    Feb 19, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls

    We told you, the big deals we love to talk about are not as likely to happen this year. There’s a lot of buzz about the Celtics but if you were around Kevin Garnett at all All-Star weekend you saw a guy adamant he is not waiving he no trade clause. The Lakers are not…

  17. Opponents say Boston Celtics do miss Ray Allen

    Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce

    When Ray Allen left Boston to go to Miami, mixed in amongst the cries of “traitor” and Kevin Garnett losing Allen’s phone number were a lot of Celtics fans saying the future Hall of Famer would not be missed. Which actually made some sense on paper — they brought in Jason Terry and Courtney Lee,…

    We enter 2013 off a week where the two best teams in the East — Miami and New York — looked sloppy while the teams at the top of the Western Conference looked strong and took over the top spots in the weekly rankings. 1. Clippers (25-6, Last week ranked No. 1). The win streak…

  19. Rip Hamilton could be out month for Bulls, maybe less

    Dec 7, 2012, 1:50 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls

    While a number of NBA players will miss games this season with irritation and pain in their plantar fascia — the connective tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot — Richard Hamilton tore his. What does that mean? He could be out a month he told Chicago media, including Aggrey Sam of CSNChciago.com.…

    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls

    In the third quarter of the Bulls’ win over the Sixers on Saturday, Rip Hamilton was forced to leave the game with a foot injury, the severity of which was unknown at the time. Hamilton returned in the game’s closing seconds to ice it for his team at the free throw line, but afterward, his comments…

  21. NBA Season Preview: Chicago Bulls

    Sep 24, 2012, 5:07 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose, Taj Gibson, Ronnie Brewer, Joakim Noah

    Last season: Once again the Bulls outworked everybody in the regular season — while 29 teams treat games like the regular season, the Bulls grind every night and they were a league best 50-16 because of it. And that was with Derrick Rose missing 27 games. They were the top seed in the East and…

  22. Bulls shopping Rip Hamilton? That was fast.

    Jul 15, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    Rip Hamilton

    Eight months ago, Rip Hamilton was going to be the difference maker for the Bulls. He would be the scoring guard that provided them with the offense they needed to put the whole package together. It was all set. Then everything fell apart. Hamilton was rarely healthy during the regular season, and just when he…

  23. Someone likely makes run at Asik, but Bulls will match

    Jun 5, 2012, 5:32 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    Quality big men are at a premium in the NBA and so any time one comes on the market teams have to overpay to keep them. See DeAndre Jordan‘s contract. It will not be that rich, but the same principle is in play with the the Bulls this summer and Omer Asik. The Turkish big…
