ESPN sources say Wolves currently only in talks w/Cavs on Love deal; Bulls essentially moving on and GSW still not giving up Klay Thompson
DRose on 14-15 Bulls: "I think this is the most talented team I’ve played on in my NBA career, to tell you the truth."
Thibodeau on Bulls roster: "It looks good. But the team that won 62 games, they did it on the floor...I love the players we have."
Sounds like Bulls Love team. GM Gar Forman: "We really like the group we have and look forward to getting going in October with that group."
Rose on the makeup of this Bulls' roster: "I think this is the most talented team I've played on in my NBA career to tell you the truth."
Rose on if McDermott can fit in with the Bulls: "If you can shoot you can fit in. With me, if you can shoot that ball, you can fit in."
Beyond fact Cavaliers can offer Wiggins, Bulls really, really like roster and depth they have assembled.
Re KLove: Bulls were more in on him before draft when they had assets (Boozer deal, 3 non-guaranteed deals, 2 picks) they no longer have.
Rose said this current Bulls team will be the most talented he's ever played on.
Gar says he's happy with where Bulls are. Doesn't rule out making another move. Says NBA is now a '12 month cycle'
Bulls GM Gar Forman is here in Vegas. Very pleased with how Rose is playing. Reiterates organization is happy Rose is here.
Players yell "ice" all the time meaning they are looking for Gervin on wing or playing Bulls defense
Dreamt Pau Gasol shaped his beard, shaved his head, and shouted "I'm the new Carlos Boozer!" at Bulls media day.
Rose on Bulls management in Vegas: "I take my hat off to the Bulls, calling me, checking on me, texting me, and really just giving advice."
Korver on Bulls gym: "I told (McDermott) you don’t have to drive that traffic. I can go back and do either Thibs or the traffic, never both"
Rose on role: "When I first came, people were wondering if I could score. On my (Bulls) team I had to score. Here, I can be more point guard
For those Bulls fans that still want Waiters in a trade, it took former Cavs coach Mike Brown a month to teach Waiters what a close-out was.
Here's some interesting news: according to a Bulls source, team is still aggressively in on Love - long shot or not.... And .....
DRose on knees: "They're good. There's no pain." Also lauded Bulls for hiring Jen Swanson, who oversaw his rehab in LA during ACL recovery.
Bulls plan to use him at the off-the-ball guard at times, and he welcomes it. "Been working on my catch-and-shoot.'' Ruh-roh.
DRose on missing on Carmelo: "Who wouldn't be disappointed?" Likes Gasol addition. Says Bulls are title contenders.
So yeah, I'm not moving off my stance that Rose is a lock for U.S. team. Also, Bulls are No. 1 in the East.
Noah doesn't like LeBron, but he respects him. Knows Bulls have a tough road to go through LBJ and the Cavs but believes they can do it.
Noah is very confident in the moves the Bulls made and is looking forward to watching Derrick Rose in the World Cup of Basketball.
