Derrick Rose looks to have locked up spot on Team USA

LAS VEGAS — Whether ­Derrick Rose will make Team USA no longer is in question. Considering the damage he has inflicted on opposing guards ­during the first three days of tryouts, it’s more about when it will be made official. Rose all but did on Wednesday. Well, kind of. In discussing new Bulls teammate Pau Gasol, who was signed as a free agent earlier in the month, Rose mistakenly said, “I talked to [Gasol] before he signed and he said when we get to Spain...

If Love goes to Bulls, what's Gasol's role?

CHICAGO -- Lost amid all the speculation revolving around Kevin Love's possible relocation to Chicago is the fact that Love's arrival would have a direct impact on the Bulls' biggest off-season acquisition to date: Pau Gasol. With Love in the fold alongside Joakim Noah, Gasol likely would be the odd man out of the starting lineup. Neither Love nor Gasol have ever been known as great defenders, so there's little chance that Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau would decide to play all three together to start games.

Sam Presti's "Thunder model," the failed run at Pau Gasol, and a critical point in the future

It was a typical Thunder offseason, as they drafted two rookies and avoided big moves in free agency. Except this time they tried to make one out of Pau Gasol. We are all familiar with what "the Oklahoma City Thunder model" entails now. They play the decision-making game carefully and pin financial control atop their list of priorities. That has translated into a roster built primarily through the draft, where the most cost-effective players tend to come from, and through which the Thunder can cultivate their own players instead of bidding with other teams to sign free agents. Look at the...

Chance at a title pulled at Pau Gasol

Pau Gasol said Friday he turned down other more-lucrative offers when he signed with the Bulls. The free-agent forward was willing to leave money on the table for the ­opportunity to compete for another championship. “Money wasn’t obviously the priority here,” Gasol said at his introductory news conference. “So I turned down bigger offers and I prioritized being [with] a championship-caliber team and being in a position where I can really, hopefully, push...

Free agents that could help the Spurs

While most of the choice free agents have opted to sign elsewhere, San Antonio's front office still has some options to consider should they feel the need to tweak the roster. After LeBron decided to return to Cleveland, the off-season picked up the pace. There have been a bunch of signings since last Friday afternoon, and at this point there are not a lot of notable free agents available outside of Kevin Love. The Spurs, meanwhile, tried to lure Pau Gasol but failed and signed Matt Bonner in what might end up being their last move of the summer. Let's take a look at where San Antonio...
