Worth remembering Bulls typically frown upon giving player options. They did this summer to Hinrich, Gasol. On table in Butler talks.
Tobias Harris' camp has tried to re-engage extension talks with Orlando, but there's no traction from the Magic, league sources tell RealGM.
Bulls obviously burned last time they had player reach restricted agency in Asik.
Did you know.....LeBron has lost 19 times against the Bulls, more than against any other NBA team. Courtesy of the MainMangurten
Since I'm in the suburbs with snow drifts in my front yard I need to leave now to get to the United Center. Thank you for the questions.
Gasol on Shaq calling him "old and finished." - “I think it’s special. I think every source of motivation I can get is good.’’
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."
With Shaun and Chris. Two awesome Bulls employees http://t.co/4chdVY2NmK
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.
Simple game plan for the Bulls tonight: ground and pound the smaller, less physical Cavs.
Butler was better today, and participated in shootaround. Game-time decision.
Thibs says Butler went through shootaround this morning. Unsure whether he will play tonight.
Butler participated in shootaround, gametime vs. Cavs.
Michigan looking for a new AD....how about my friend Rob Pelinka? He would be great!

Bulls are going to have to increase offer if Butler extension gets done by tonight's deadline. Remember: Bulls can match next summer too.
In 2012, Taj Gibson said as late as pregame he wouldn't sign extension. Talks continued through game. He signed afterward. That said . . .
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.
What if LeBron plays like this all season? (5-15 FGs, 8 TOs)
Trust me Cavs will be ready for the Bulls 630pre Bulls Radio Network ESPN 1000
I think we all expected a gutty bounce-back performance from the Knicks tonight in Cleveland.
Knicks march in to Cleveland win maybe" the biggest game ever".
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.
Forget the triangle. Give Melo the rock and get out of the way!
LeBron took his game to South Beach tonight
Hawks will allow John Jenkins to be a UFA next summer, declining his fourth-year option, sources tell RealGM. Jenkins was 23rd pick in 2012.
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.
Noah on atmosphere in United Center tomorrow for home opener with LeBron and Cavs in town: "It's as good as it gets."
Thibodeau on Kyrie Irving: "To characterize him as a young guy is not fair. He’s a superstar."
Butler just blew past McDermott for what appears to be game-winning layup. Losers ran ladder.
Nothing's really changed with Butler's thumb. Thibs says he's day to day now. Yesterday he said nobody knows so let's stick with that.
Game is Butler, E'Twaun, Mirotic & Nazr vs. McDermott, Snell, Bairstow & Adrian Griffin.
Jimmy Butler currently playing 4 on 4, thumb not as heavily taped as it was Tue.
Butler playing 4-on-4 after light practice.
Butler injury update? Back to day-to-day.
According to a source, Bulls and Butler's camp still have open dialogue, but still have a gap in perceived value. Clock is ticking, boys.
Regarding Butler talks, any beat writer knows nothing gets done without a deadline. So this can change. But as of now, large gap remains.
Nothing's going on in Cleveland is there.....what's all the fuss about? Browns practicing in Berea?
Away from the noise and congestion of work,the serenity and peace of faith and peace is above all others12:10Mass http://t.co/tjk8EkaIP6
Thibs on Taj: "He was the best player in training camp and preseason games. He just does his job, lets his performance speak for itself."
Wheels down Chicago!

McDermott said his welcome to the NBA moment came when he saw Ben Stiller and Taylor Swift sitting courtside.
Rose: "I think everybody saw how deep we are."
Joe Maddon approved of the Bulls win tonight.
Always a pleasure. Thanks for listening. Up next home opener Friday vs Cavs 630 pre Bulls Radio Network ESPN 1000
Dunleavy outstanding D on Melo
Bulls in a blowout 104-80 final. 6 double figure scorers Taj 22-8. Gasol 21-11 Bulls 50%fg. 25-30 fts. Reb 47-38.
Thibs won't like that 35-point lead being trimmed to 24.
Taj finishes with 22 and 8, 10-12 shooting in 28 mins; Gasol 21 and 11, 7-11 shooting in 29 mins. It's the defense, stupid.
Raise your hand if you thought Cameron Bairstow would make his NBA debut tonight. Not you, Mrs. Bairstow.
How over is this game? Cameron Bairstow is waiting to check in for the first time in a regular season game.
Thibs madly pacing sideline and shouting instructions as Bulls lead shrinks to 33
Bulls go up 100-65. Appear in good shape as first team to 100 in NBA often wins
