Brian Windhorst

Talks between Bulls & Jimmy Butler on extension not progressing. But Bulls have beaten deadline buzzer in past.

KC Johnson

Worth remembering Bulls typically frown upon giving player options. They did this summer to Hinrich, Gasol. On table in Butler talks.

Bob Finnan

#Cavs at Bulls, 8 tonight. Can Cavs recover from downer in season opener? clevelandcavaliersblog.blogspot.com/2014/10/cavs-a…

KC Johnson

Bulls obviously burned last time they had player reach restricted agency in Asik.

Whether he gets it from Bulls or not, he'll get lots of $.RT @ESPNChiBulls: Is Jimmy Butler worth $12 million a year? es.pn/1tmPCSS

Lang Greene

LeBron James is just 12-15 in Chicago since entering the league. Cavs-Bulls tonight might just be a ECF preview

Mark Woods

LeBron’s second challenge: running with the Bulls tonight. Look ahead @unibet bet.unibet.co.uk/us-sports/nba/…

Jason Lloyd

Per @KC Johnson, Jimmy Butler (thumb) participated in Bulls shootaround this morning and will be a gametime decision tonight vs #Cavs

Chuck Swirsky

With Shaun and Chris. Two awesome Bulls employees http://t.co/4chdVY2NmK

Sam Amick

On the extension front, Jimmy Butler's camp doesn't see a deal getting done with the Bulls before the midnight Eastern deadline.

KC Johnson

As of last night, Bulls and Butler had roughly $2.5M gap annually. That's a lot to make up in one day but deadlines force all on table.

Joe Cowley

Simple game plan for the Bulls tonight: ground and pound the smaller, less physical Cavs.

Steve Kyler

Bulls absolutely could get this done if they want to - this is not a case of having polar valuations - side are not that far apart.

Steve Kyler

For what it's worth - Bulls and Jimmy Butler's camp still talking - not astronomically far apart - more about structure of the deal than $

Sam Smith

Bulls/Cavs. Is it for the championship of October? bit.ly/1q8q7Q6

Amin Elhassan

One thing you rarely hear is what teams pro players hated before they turned pro...I do remember Joakim Noah saying he hated the Bulls!

Amin Elhassan

Other teams I hated: Jordan's Bulls (I hated @Steve Kerr!), Cavs of 2008-10 (hated Danny Green dance dance revolution) #NBAlockdownhate

David 'Dubi' Pick

Blatt's team went 0-2 to start last season. Cavaliers got next vs Bulls.

KC Johnson

Bulls are going to have to increase offer if Butler extension gets done by tonight's deadline. Remember: Bulls can match next summer too.

Mike McGraw

Tonight is the deadline for #Bulls and Jimmy Butler to agree to contract extension. From 10/17, why it's a longshot: dailyherald.com/article/201410…

As for LeBron/Cavs opening-night loss, we knew it was going to take some time. Big opportunity for Raptors & Bulls to get head start in East

Ha.@Cuse party after game.RT @chrisbleck: College night for Bulls vs. T-Wolves Saturday night. Have fun @Nick Friedell http://t.co/eIzxJ6gg2G

Roland Lazenby

It's way too early to confuse these Knicks with the MJ/Pip Bulls or the Shaq/Kobe Lakers. But they showed that familiar confidence.

Polo Bustamante

Minny won. Cavs lost to the same NY team that the Bulls beat. Here's my overreaction to all this:

Sean Highkin

Never looked forward to covering a game more so than I am Bulls-Cavs tomorrow.

Nick Friedell

This game at the UC tomorrow night is going to be awesome. Cavs will be angry, Bulls are pumped. LeBron vs. Rose. Atmosphere off the charts.

Vince Thomas

Disappointed that Bron's gm didnt match the moment. Impressed Knicks able to wade through early energy and snag W day after Bulls ethered em

Chuck Swirsky

Trust me Cavs will be ready for the Bulls 630pre Bulls Radio Network ESPN 1000

Nick Friedell

That possession from Carmelo is making Thibs cringe right now. That's why Bulls wanted him so bad. He can create and hit big shots late.

Bruce Bowen

Learning experience for Knicks, the benefits of the Triangle. They're not the Bulls or Lakers under Phil, but it's something to build on

Nazr Mohammed

Great event! RT @Url_R: Great to see @Nazr Mohammed at the CVLS gala. Fantastic donations from him. #ChicagoBulls

Nick Friedell

Having watched the Knicks in person last night, I really can't believe this score. They are terrible. The Bulls are good, but NYK is brutal.

Trey Kerby

Almost cruel Melo has to play the Bulls and Cavs in his first two games after not signing with the Bulls to challenge the Cavs.

Sam Amico

Well, this is over. Bring on the Bulls.

Ohm Youngmisuk

Melo said he was anxious to see how he and the Knicks would rebound from Bulls loss. Melo has come out aggressive with 6 pts already

Mark Heisler

It's better to do it w/Bulls than #Lakers RT @Howard Beck: What Did We Learn as Kobe, Rose return? bleacherreport.com/articles/22507… via @bleacherreport
