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

Shams Charania

Tobias Harris' camp has tried to re-engage extension talks with Orlando, but there's no traction from the Magic, league sources tell RealGM.

KC Johnson

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

Happy #Halloween everybody! I hope you all have a great day and let's see who's got the best costume! I'm sure there'll be some great ones.

Pau Gasol

Feliz #Halloween a todos! Qué tengáis una buena noche y a ver quién de vosotr@s tiene el disfraz más bonito y original.

Sam Smith

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.

Joe Cowley

Gasol on Shaq calling him "old and finished." - “I think it’s special. I think every source of motivation I can get is good.’’

Chuck Swirsky

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

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."

No. I think I would go with the Rose kid. @JakeATurner

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

Sam Smith

Kirk Hinrich, not even close, for the defense and no offense to Brooks. @eramic12

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.

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

Sam Smith

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

Joe Cowley

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

Sam Smith

On LeBron, the alltime guards, Jimmy Butler and Mike Ditka. bit.ly/1rGtgpL

Sam Smith

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

Joe Cowley

Butler was better today, and participated in shootaround. Game-time decision.

Nick Friedell

Thibs says Butler went through shootaround this morning. Unsure whether he will play tonight.

KC Johnson

Butler participated in shootaround, gametime vs. Cavs.

Chuck Swirsky

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.

KC Johnson

In 2012, Taj Gibson said as late as pregame he wouldn't sign extension. Talks continued through game. He signed afterward. That said . . .

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…

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.

Mike McGraw

What if LeBron plays like this all season? (5-15 FGs, 8 TOs)

Chuck Swirsky

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

Mike McGraw

I think we all expected a gutty bounce-back performance from the Knicks tonight in Cleveland.

Chuck Swirsky

Knicks march in to Cleveland win maybe" the biggest game ever".

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.

Chuck Swirsky

Forget the triangle. Give Melo the rock and get out of the way!

Chuck Swirsky

LeBron took his game to South Beach tonight

Anyone watching Saints -Panthers. LOL #NBA

Shams Charania

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.

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.

Mike McGraw

Griff's about 4 years older. RT @yerb23: just out of curiosity, who’s younger, Nazr or Adrian?

Pau Gasol

Congrats @HungryBB_! We all loved your photo! Enjoy your 2tix for tomorrow’s game! Thank you all for participating! #BullsPG #1

Noah on atmosphere in United Center tomorrow for home opener with LeBron and Cavs in town: "It's as good as it gets."

KC Johnson

Thibodeau on Kyrie Irving: "To characterize him as a young guy is not fair. He’s a superstar."

Mike McGraw

Butler just blew past McDermott for what appears to be game-winning layup. Losers ran ladder.

Nick Friedell

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.

Mike McGraw

Game is Butler, E'Twaun, Mirotic & Nazr vs. McDermott, Snell, Bairstow & Adrian Griffin.

Mike McGraw

Jimmy Butler currently playing 4 on 4, thumb not as heavily taped as it was Tue.

KC Johnson

Butler playing 4-on-4 after light practice.

Joe Cowley

Butler injury update? Back to day-to-day.

Joe Cowley

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.

Joe Cowley

But which NBA star actually had the best shoes to play in - my vote - youtube.com/watch?v=rGr3AJ… No shoe was better.

Joe Cowley

youtube.com/watch?v=5Lt4Qa… And the most underrated shoe commercial of all time.

Joe Cowley

youtube.com/watch?v=ZjFK3L… This set the bar .... until we all found out Spike hated the Bulls and loved the Knicks.

Joe Cowley

This was a good one because it's the last time NBA guys actually wanted to play with Kobe youtube.com/watch?v=XcVkdC…

Joe Cowley

Cavs have already destroyed the Bulls in bad-ass commercials - not even close - youtube.com/watch?v=-8yOG3…

KC Johnson

Regarding Butler talks, any beat writer knows nothing gets done without a deadline. So this can change. But as of now, large gap remains.

Chuck Swirsky

Nothing's going on in Cleveland is there.....what's all the fuss about? Browns practicing in Berea?

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.
