Bulls Considering A New Practice Facility Downtown

The Chicago Tribune is reporting the Chicago Bulls may be looking for a new practice facility, potentially closer to downtown Chicago and their home stadium, the United Center. President and COO Michael Reinsdorf spoke with Tribune reporter K.C. Johnson on the matter, saying the move from the suburbs could help the players who must commute from the northern suburbs facility to the United Center for game days:

"We're intrigued by the idea," Reinsdorf said. "We're happy at the Berto Center, but it's something we're going to take a look at for our players. Eliminating their commute could be a good thing."

The Bulls have been practicing at the Berto Center in Deerfield, IL, for 20 years, but a move closer downtown would help both the players and the team save on expenses related to the long commute.
