According to veteran Mike Dunleavy, the two have had several conversations concerning next season, and Butler has made it clear to Dunleavy that he wanted to stay a Bull. “I really think that Jimmy will be back,’’ Dunleavy said. “I’m really optimistic that he and I will both be back. I’ve talked to him a little over the course of this summer. Obviously, nothing is set in stone and he’s got to go through the process, but I would be surprised if Jimmy’s in another uniform next year besides the Bulls.’’

When free agency begins at 11:01 p.m. Tuesday, the Bulls plan to be extremely competitive to retain Dunleavy, who turned down more lucrative offers in signing a two-year, $6.5 million deal in July 2013. He found a comfort level personally and professionally in Chicago. “I love being here and would love to be back,” said Dunleavy, who has spent time at the Bulls’ practice facility. “Re-signing is a priority.”

The Bulls’ Mike Dunleavy avoided a suspension for the shot to the neck he gave to Milwaukee’s Michael Carter-Williams early in Game 6, but Giannis Antetokounmpo wasn’t as fortunate. Giannis tackled Dunleavy in retaliation, and was immediately ejected for his actions. He’s also been suspended one game, the league announced on Saturday via official release.

Chicago Bulls forward Mike Dunleavy has escaped a suspension for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals, league sources told Yahoo Sports. Dunleavy hadn’t been called for two-handed contact to the back of the neck of Milwaukee’s Michael Carter-Williams in Chicago’s Game 6 victory on Thursday. After an NBA review, the league upgraded that play to a flagrant 1 foul call, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
Now playing basketball on film in this, you have to convincingly look like a player but you also have to deal with camera setups and all of that. What is the different discipline of playing basketball for a TV show, for the TV camera? Baron Davis: You know it’s kind of like playing basketball for Mike Dunleavy. He tells you to do everything out there anyway. You feel like a robot. So I was pretty much used to it. So when we did get in the arena and the cameras were on I was like, “Oh, I’m used to being told what to do every time I dribble the ball so this won’t bother me at all.”
