Love for McDermott? Bulls rookie waits out trade rumors

LAS VEGAS – Bulls rookie Doug McDermott admitted on Tuesday that he was close to settling on a place in Chicago. And yes, he’s likely renting rather than buying. Smart decision. While the Kevin Love-Bulls trade rumors have seemingly quieted down to an almost complete silence, according to a source, the team was still in pursuit of the Minnesota All-Star forward, and that meant the package of Taj Gibson, McDermott as well as “other assets’’ was still on the...

An Evening of Love

Thought it was time for a quick round-up/overnight Kevin Love post. Because we aren't talking about that enough. It was another eventful day on the rumor mill while the Wolves try to squeeze as much as they can out of a Kevin Love trade that now seems inevitable.  I thought the last thread was getting a bit laggy, so here is fresh thread goodness. What we know is that the two primary suitors at the moment are the Cavaliers and Bulls.  The Bulls situation became somewhat more clear (we think) today, as it was reported in multiple places that they are offering Taj Gibson, Nikola Mirotic,...

Are Bulls really in the mix for Kevin Love?

The Bulls have reportedly upped their offer for Love. Are they truly serious players in these negotiations? When it first came out Tuesday that the Bulls had "renewed interest" in Kevin Love, it did feel like a leverage play by the Wolves to try and get the Cavs (or even the Warriors) to up the ante. But that initial report has been followed up by several others that make it seem like the Bulls really are making a concerted effort to acquire Love. First came the report from Chris Sheridan that said the Bulls were offering Taj Gibson, Nikola Mirotic and Doug McDermott. The deal was said to...

Gibson: Rose going to be 'dominant'

DEERFIELD, Ill. -- Taj Gibson has no doubt that Derrick Rose is going to come back this season better than ever after playing in just 10 games for the Chicago Bulls over the last two seasons because of two serious knee injuries. "Derrick's been having a great summer," Gibson said on Wednesday during an appearance for his basketball camp. "He's sacrificed, stayed in Chicago all summer to work on his game. He wants to let his game speak for itself.

Bulls offer Taj Gibson, Doug McDermott for Kevin Love — source

According to a Timberwolves source, the Bulls made a “significant offer’’ Wednesday morning for Kevin Love, and it’s an offer that is being “heavily considered.’’

Bulls reportedly offering Gibson, McDermott, Mirotic for Love

Chris Sheridan was on top of the LeBron James-to-Cleveland story, reporting that it was going to happen before LeBron broke it open with an essay on SI.com. He already had credibility before that, but he gained more that day — enough that we need to take his report of a Bulls offer to the Wolves quite seriously. Per Sheridan, Chicago is offering a package of Doug McDermott, Nikola Mrotic and Taj Gibson in a potential Kevin Love deal. Sheridan writes: Such a deal is extremely intriguing to the Timberwolves, but there is a catch — it cannot be completed for another 29 days after McDermott...

Kevin Love to Bulls? That’s a tricky one

If the Bulls are back in the Kevin Love sweepstakes, as ESPN reported on Tuesday, that would be news to a source close to the situation. “I would like to know which side let that out,’’ the source said, inferring that it sounded more like Minnesota playing chicken with more serious bidders like Golden State and Cleveland. The Bulls were one of the first to throw a serious package at the Timberwolves back in June, headlined by Taj Gibson, Tony Snell and...

Thibs: Taj Gibson's role won't change

CHICAGO -- Tom Thibodeau was non-committal Friday when the topic of his opening night starting lineup came up. He's still not sure how he will divvy up the minutes between a much deeper frontcourt comprised of Joakim Noah, Pau Gasol, Taj Gibson and Nikola Mirotic. But the veteran coach did acknowledge that no matter what happens, Gibson's role on the team will not change. "I don't think it changes at all," Thibodeau said. "As I've spoken with all three, they're all going to have significant roles.
