The rumors surrounding the Chicago Bulls and two of its star players just won't quit. On Sunday, Mitch Lawrence of the New York Daily News reported that the Bulls would like to retain both Taj Gibson and Omer Asik, and are exploring ways to move either Joakim Noah or Luol Deng in order to make that happen.
It would be almost impossible for the Bulls to re-sign both Gibson and Asik and stay under the luxury tax line, a threshold which owner Jerry Reinsdorf is reportedly unwilling to cross. In recent days, the Bulls have been rumored to be looking for a trade partner inside the lottery, with various reports linking them to the Golden State Warriors, Sacramento Kings and Houston Rockets.
