Gibson is a rare player whose production and attitude never seem affected by whether he starts or comes off the bench. Last season, he ended up taking the starting power forward spot from Nikola Mirotic, rallying from ankle surgery in June 2015 to average 8.6 points and 6.9 rebounds. Seemingly every season, he averages zero complaints. “He’s one of those guys that does everything that you ask of him,” coach Fred Hoiberg said. “He’s in great spirits. He’s a positive force.”
Vincent Goodwill: Bulls are definitely working phones, getting aggressive. I get the sense they don’t want to trade Taj Gibson, so Dunleavy/Calderon in play. When the Bulls decided not to trade Jimmy Butler, they wanted to be competitive in the meantime while getting younger/more athletic. My sense is the market jumped too fast than they projected, and to stay competitive, they’re willing to take on Rondo/Wade as stopgaps.
