Add another name Jon Lester--either Scherzer, Price or Lester-in a Cubs uniform.

Chuck Swirsky

Take it to the bank.save this tweet--either David Price or Max Scherzer will be in a Cubs' uniform next year..book it. Big bucks. Big splash

Nick Friedell

75 and sunny with a breeze. I could get used to living in San Diecago.

Shams Charania

Jameer Nelson balanced finances and winning in free agency. Dwight Howard made multiple calls recruiting Nelson to Houston, sources say.

Shams Charania

Free agent Jameer Nelson has finalized paperwork on his deal with the Mavericks: $2.75M in Year 1, $3.25M in Year 2, source tells RealGM.

Nick Friedell

Great seeing Jay Gruden in the national spotlight. Still remember when he coached Orlando Predators and his office was at Tinker Field.

Joe Cowley

That means a lot of time for other teams to now adjust. Minny doing what they should - slow play until a decision has to be made.

Joe Cowley

Bad news, Bulls are shooting down idea that there was a deadline placed on deal. Pack a lunch, this might take awhile.

Joe Cowley

Good news? TWolves still feel the Bulls latest offer is the best on the table. ....

I would like to buy ONE fantasy football guide, so which is the best/most comprehensive/most insightful?

Joe Cowley

Berto Center is completely dark right now - no news coming out. .... Just how Gar Forman likes it.

Joe Cowley

This Love Sweepstakes is like an episode of House of Cards .... without the murder .... that we know of.

Joe Cowley

TWolves obviously doing all they can to drive the price up, as FOX Sports Ohio now has the Cavs looking to get a 3rd team involved for Love.

Pau Gasol

Shams Charania

Several fresh calls on Jameer Nelson today, dialogue ongoing, sources tell RealGM. Bulls were solid suitor before PG signings, source says.

Taj Gibson

Thanks to @CitiPrivatePass for sponsoring my @ProCamps Lots of talent out there today. I had fun with all the kids! #CloserToPro

Joe Cowley

Now the big question as this day goes on - how does first-year Cavs GM LeBron James make sure Love is still Cleveland bound?

KC Johnson

Taj Gibson focuses on what he can control. my.chicagotribune.com/#section/434/a…

Joe Cowley

If this is going down it could be going down quicker than expected.

Joe Cowley

Per source: Forman put a deadline on TWolves response so that there isn't this back-and-forth playing the Cavs and Bulls against each other.

Joe Cowley

Maybe Flip Saunders is a lot smarter than he was getting credit for entering this week.

Joe Cowley

Here is the full story on Bulls going all in for Love this morning - suntimes.com/sports/2882340…

Joe Cowley

If Forman and Bulls would have been all in on Tuesday for Love, they wouldn't have had McDermott sign. It's a Wed morning decision made.

Joe Cowley

McDermott signing would hold deal back from being official for 30 days, but could agree in principle.

Joe Cowley

On the TWolves side, there is great pressure to start winning, and another rebuild with the Cavs deal is not ideal.

Joe Cowley

Forman and Pax are in a win-now window, and made the decision that Love in Chicago is much better than Love in Cleveland with James.

Joe Cowley

Bulls felt Timberwolves were initially bluffing to drive up the price Tue. night, but in backchannels with Love, felt like Cavs were close.

Joe Cowley

... as well as "other assets.'' Mirotic is still unconfirmed.

Joe Cowley

.... Gar Forman played poker face for about 12 hours, and then pushed all the chips in this morning. Confirmed Taj and McDermott ...

Joe Cowley

According to the source, Timberwolves reached out to Bulls last night to let them know Cavs offer was best on the table ...

Joe Cowley

According to a Timberwolves source, the Bulls made a "significant offer'' for Kevin Love this morning and it's being "heavily considered.''

Nick Friedell

Gibson says every time he comes to the gym Derrick Rose is in there. Taj says he expects Rose to come back and be 'dominant.'

Nick Friedell

Taj Gibson: "If anything happens, it happens, but Chicago is my home. I look forward to playing in Chicago hopefully for a long time."

Nick Friedell

Gibson says this Bulls team reminds him of the one that went to Eastern Conference finals in 2011.

KC Johnson

Taj Gibson "loves" the Pau Gasol addition and said he was never told he would start and has no problem coming off bench.

Joe Cowley

Bulls could be close to shocking the NBA offseason ... those 100 to 1 odds I gave on the @mullyhanley this morning? Should have bet 'em.

Nick Friedell

Gibson believes Gasol addition is big. Taj says he was never told he would be starting and doesn't have an issue still coming off the bench.

KC Johnson

Taj Gibson said every time he works out at Berto Center, team officials tell him not to worry about rumors.

Nick Friedell

Gibson knows trade speculation is out there. He believes Bulls have one of the best teams in the league if they stay intact.

Nick Friedell

Gibson reiterates that he and Noah's message to Melo was come to Chicago and win championships. Says he understood Anthony's decision.

KC Johnson

Taj Gibson eloquently talking about loss of his cousin from earlier this summer.

KC Johnson

Taj Gibson said as currently constructed the Bulls are deep and have ability to get to Eastern Conference finals.

KC Johnson

Taj Gibson said trade rumors part of the business and that Bulls haven't told him anything.

Nick Friedell

Taj Gibson admits trade rumors are "tough". He still wants to be in Chicago.

Taj Gibson

Shams Charania

Houston Rockets' Nick Johnson -- 42nd overall pick -- will sign a fully guaranteed, three-year rookie contract, league source tells RealGM.

Chuck Swirsky

Just learned the passing of one of my favorite PR media men ever in college athletics Jim " Schneids" Schneider from Michigan. RIP. Wow.

Aggrey Sam

Thibs and those "good problems" the Bulls now have: bit.ly/1pbkkuv

Shams Charania

Cavs signed 2nd rounder Joe Harris of Virginia to 3-year rookie deal, league source tells RealGM. Two guaranteed years; team option on 3rd.

Joe Cowley

$13.5 mill still owed to Booze this year - though not on the cap - Mirotic deal, which sounded contingent on not being traded.

Joe Cowley

Do the math for the next two years: Rose $18.8 mill and then $20 mill. Noah $12.2 mill and then $13.4. Gasol $7.1mill and $7.4 mill...

Joe Cowley

The Bulls do not publicly address rumors. Key word - publicly.

Joe Cowley

suntimes.com/sports/basketb… Love to the Bulls, plus guys signing contracts.

Joe Cowley

Talked to a source who quickly pointed out that the leaks are coming from the Twin Cities. Can you say playing chicken?

Joe Cowley

All the "Bulls are back in the Love sweepstakes'' is coming from the Minnesota side. Don't believe the hype.

Mike McGraw

Also, if Cavs really are offering Wiggins and Bennett (last two #1 picks), how would the #Bulls top that? Maybe Cavs are offering less.

Mike McGraw

It makes little sense for #Bulls to have Love, Gasol and Noah. Those guys would make $35 mil (and rising), but can't play all at same time.

KC Johnson

Reported 2 weeks ago that Mirotic sought assurance for long-term commitment from Bulls before completing buyout.

Nick Friedell

Bulls officially announce Aaron Brooks signing as well. On paper, the Bulls are now 11 deep.

Mike McGraw

Bulls just made the Aaron Brooks signing official.
