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.
Remember when Jordan and Pippen were the only Bulls at EnergySolutions arena? http://t.co/cGcoHCpvfI
...DRose has played 10 NBA games in the last 820 days. The Bulls have paid him $6.8 million per win over that time.
Bulls offseason recruiting grades now that Love has his heart set on Cleveland: Taj Gibson - B+ - Helped with Anthony Day and dinner.
Noah said his knee is "great" and the Bulls' offseason changes "make you want to work hard and be ready as possible for the season."
Bulls starting to get that feeling that they might again be first runner-up in a big offseason move. First Melo, and now Love.
You do get the sense that if Chicago could come close to matching the money Carmelo would have picked the Bulls.
Asking anyone to take half the money they'd otherwise get is unrealistic. But if the Bulls could've had max cap room, I think he goes there
Cavs can't trade Wiggins for 30 days BUT Bulls can't get KLove, either, w/out including Mirotic and/or McDermott & sweating out similar wait
Also, the Bulls signed Mirotic and McBuckets recently so they can't get a deal done for a few weeks, either.
