Happy Monday, Bulls fans, and welcome to the weekend's wrap of team news and notes.
Joakim Noah, Taj Gibson and Derrick Rose stopped by St. Sabina on the South Side to show their support at the Peace Basketball Tournament, a day of peace in a section of the city's most violence-wrought neighborhoods.
- Taj Gibson is one of the Bulls' most important players and the team has made his re-signing a high priority. So fans will be excited to know that the two sides have entered into contract negotiations.
- Many Bulls fans have wondered if Derrick Rose would ever consider leaving Chicago and joining another team. But according to Reggie, Derrick's older brother, he doesn't see that happening.
- The biggest talk heading into the season for the Bulls has been where the points will come from without D. Rose. Here's an interesting take on how the offense will look and what to expect from the shooting guard position.
- Omer Asik was one of the Bulls' key defensive players off the bench last season. Now he's in Houston, and his new Rocket's teammate, Jeremy Lin, says people underestimate Omer's offensive prowess.
