Have you watched much video on Synergy? Doug McDermott: I watch a lot of Synergy. I don't watch Synergy on myself. I like to look at other players who I look up to. I think Synergy is so nice for guys if they want to reflect on what they're doing well, what they're doing wrong, but I don't watch myself a lot. KP: Do you think your reputation as a "shooter" undersells your ability to score in different ways, especially in the post? DM: I think so. I think being known as a shooter, guys tend to look at me as I can only spot up and shoot 3s. But I think the people who know are the people who watch Synergy, watched a lot of my games. I can score a lot of different ways and not just spot up. ESPN.com

Potentially following in the tradition of diminutive scoring point guards like C.J. Watson, John Lucas III, D.J. Augustin and fellow Seattle native Nate Robinson, free agent Aaron Brooks could be next in line to fill the role of the next Bulls' instant-offense scorer off the bench, CSNChicago.com has learned.

Marc Stein: That means Lakers acquire Boozer's expiring contract and Chicago is on the hook for the rest of Boozer's salary in 2014-15: $13.6 million. By releasing Boozer via amnesty, Chicago wiped that $13.6 million off books for cap & tax purposes but must still PAY Boozer money he's owed. Twitter @ESPNSteinLine

Jimmy Butler’s Taylor Swift sing along in the Bulls locker room earlier this year makes a little more sense now. The Bulls guard was on hand Friday for the country music festival, Windy City Smokeout, at Grand Avenue and the Chicago River. Ex-Bear Greg Olsen – now with the Carolina Panthers —was also there, separately. On Saturday, Butler checked out the National Women’s Soccer League game between the Chicago Red Stars and Seattle Reign FC and then tweeted a photo of himself out to dinner with Reign star Sydney Leroux.

Did Kobe call you? Gasol: We were in touch during all those days. Then, when I made the decision, I called him. Q. How did he react? Gasol: He was sad. We're true friends. But he understood that it was a difficult decision and he told me he would always support me. We have a relationship that goes beyond basketball. Our friendship is forever. He told me he will always be there and I will always be there for him, of course. Marca.com
