Now, the Bulls have a decision to make. The final year of Watson’s contract is a team option and Chicago has yet to indicate whether or not they’re going to retain the point guard for $3.2 million. Watson says he hasn’t heard one way or another from the organization, but he’s optimistic that he’ll return. “I expect to come back,” Watson said. “They have until July 10 so I’m just waiting to hear from them and see what happens. I want to be back. I love the team, I love the city, I love my teammates and I love my coaches. I think it’s a good fit.” HoopsWorld

Watson has begun workouts after having shock wave therapy to address plantar fasciitis in both feet. His option is for $3.2 million. Korver, who quietly battled a foot injury so severe that he couldn't play much in the season-ending Game 6 loss to the 76ers and had to wear a walking boot, has a $5 million option. Brewer's is for $4.37 million. None of the three are confident they will return. Chicago Tribune

Chicago might not pick up its $3.7 million option on backup point guard C.J. Watson, but his representative, Jared Karnes, said Watson "is hopeful to remain with the Bulls." The Warriors gave Watson his shot in the NBA and are in the market for an experienced backup point guard, so they'll follow Watson's situation closely. San Francisco Chronicle
