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.
Gibson, who also vowed to try to play through a fractured rib for Saturday’s showdown against the Pistons, passionately defended the Bulls’ coach following Friday’s practice, which Gibson didn’t participate in. “They need to just shut up. Everybody tries to discredit this man, and it’s rough,” Gibson said. “He’s a rookie coach taking on a veteran group. Give him some slack, man. It’s hard enough as it is to come in. You’ve got the whole city of Chicago on your back. But I think he’s just learning, doing a good job. He’s staying with us, and I’m riding with him no matter what.
