I like Aldrich. He's immense. Gives hard fouls. Takes up space & engulfs misses. Plus, he's legit threat f 3. He'd be my starting center.

Kevin Pelton

Along with the Spreecast, @ersports1 and I also looked at some interesting player prop bets this season: es.pn/1sQZY8e (In)

David Locke

Cancel everything you are doing today and go check out the new stats.nba.com player tracking . Incredible #nbastats

Chuck Swirsky

One on one with Joakim Noah tonight at 630 on BullsTV live streaming video on Bulls.com http://t.co/NfNktDvHU4

David Locke

Last year the player Alec Burks was defending shot 47% the usual shooter would have shot 44% #nbastats

Trey Kerby

Jason Lloyd

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

Ric Bucher

Prepping for Mon's debut of the Nicole & Bucher Show on Sirius 93/XM 208 7-10 am PT. As in @NicoleZaloumis. Fun will be had. Promise.

Anthony Slater

From last night: Thunder's current injury list combined for 83.8 points, 21.2 rebounds and 18.5 assists last season.

KC Johnson

Finally asked Gasol about Thibodeau getting a T arguing a no-call for Gasol up 24 in the 4th: "Thibs is intense. We've established that."

David Locke

Alec is yet to score on any of the 9 passes from Trey Burke this year but has scored on two passes from Tre Bussey http://t.co/wVf3uiZWZO

Vince Cellini

Injuries r never a good thing, but @Oklahoma City Thunder showed heart in tough loss at @Los Angeles Clippers plus Steven Adams-10reb and Perry Jones-32pts shine

Jeff Goodman

Kansas shooting guard Conner Frankamp is transferring. Was behind too many guys -- and would have played sparingly.

Devin Kharpertian

Correction: Eric Bledsoe 5th (37.7), Mirza 6th

Ira Winderman

But Udonis Haslem (quad) and Danny Granger (hamstring) were limited in practice, listed as day-to-day. (More Ennis time?)

Devin Kharpertian

League leaders in PER: Anthony Davis (46.2), Taj Gibson (43.1), Marc Gasol (39.3), Kenneth Faried (37.9), Mirza Teletovic (37.2)

David Locke

Alec Burks touched ball 2 to 6 seconds before 49% of his shots. Hit 42% on those. Had 57% efg on shots with less than 2 sec touch time

Ira Winderman

Both Josh McRoberts (toe) and Dwyane Wade (calf contusion) went through full practice today. Shawne as starter might be coming to an end.

Peter Vecsey

If Acy, Aldrich & Jason Smith beat up and beat on The downsized version of LeBron, what should we expect from Noah, Hinrich & Taj the Mahal?

Anthony Slater

No. At this point, getting into playoffs healthy should be only concern RT @DustinJohnson21 @Anthony Slater does seeding matter for OKC?

David Locke

Burks took 27% of his shots under very tight coverage and hit on 46%. He also took 26% when open (4-6 feet) but hit 42% or 47% efg

Chuck Swirsky

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

Jimmy Spencer

Absolutely. Will check that out. RT @JBranchCNN: @Jimmy Spencer And seek out a lil paperback called Mudville Diaries, good one

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.

Tim MacMahon

It just keeps getting worse for underwear spokesman Joseph Randle.

Sam Smith

You'll have to get past one regular season game. That 2010-11 group was pretty good but this one could be better. @Chitownmurph

Mike Wise

Via @MeganMFinnerty, the feeling from @blackhorse_a is Minneapolis will be a significant protest: azcentral.com/story/news/loc…

David Locke

Alec Burks took 26% of his shots off 3 to 6 dribbles and shot 41% on those. Off just 1 dribble he shot 48% and took those shots 18% of time

Incredible new stats at stats.nba.com I will use Alec Burks consider he is the star of the day to share the new info

Sam Smith

Thibs obviously loves Taj. He'll be on the floor in the 4th quarter. But so will Noah and Gasol. @bullsforever

Sam Smith

McDermott is probably not going to play enough but I think he'll be the rookie to go the farthest in the playoffs. @ToryFields1

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.

Tom Moore

#Sixers now have 4 players under contract next season (Embiid, Noel, MCW, Wroten) at a total of $14.3 million. #76ers #NBA

Sam Smith

I've been saying the Cavs are the favorites but they undercut my prediction with last night's loss to the Knicks. @VivekkPatel50

Brian Windhorst

Cavs and Tristan Thompson still apart in extension talks. Plenty of pessimism now but long way until midnight deadline.

Sam Smith

LeBron and winter just arrived. Let's warm up with a few questions. Reply with a question and #AskSam.

Jimmy Spencer

In terms of that romantic style of baseball writing, here’s a fantastic column from the great @Bruce_Jenkins1 sfgate.com/giants/jenkins…

Sean Highkin

If Alec Burks got $11m a year Jimmy Butler definitely isn't taking less than 12.

Jimmy Spencer

I continue to read the Game 7 stories from these incredible writers. There’s something very romantic about baseball storytelling.

Jason Lieser

Heat announce that Josh McRoberts (toe) practiced in full today. I believe that's his first one since signing.

David Locke

Burks at about 11 a year seems high compared to current deals but landscape has changed. So probably over pay for 2 yrs under pay for 2

I'm going to interview people on this Dallas airport shuttle to get their reaction on the Alec Burks deal. Story at noon.

Rod Boone

#Nets say Brook didn't practice today. Check in with @ColinASteph for updates from practice.

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