Minnesota Continues To Negotiate Trade For Kevin Love Through The Media

loverumors

On Tuesday rumors surfaced that the Bulls were still very much involved in the Kevin Love Trade Sweepstakes. Though most of the focus on Love the last few weeks has been about the Timberwolves and Cavs discussing a deal that would involve Andrew Wiggins, the top pick in last month’s draft, it wasn’t that surprising to find out that the Bulls would still have interest in love.

After all, getting Love from the Wolves would not only improve the Bulls roster, but it’d keep the Cavs — a division rival that just got LeBron James back — from getting him as well. It’s just there was one small problem with the Tuesday’s rumor.

By most accounts, it was Minnesota leaking the Bulls supposed interest.

Some Helpful English Phrases For Nikola Mirotic

Screen Shot 2014-07-18 at 11.48.41 AM

During his introductory press conference with the Chicago Bulls, Nikola Mirotic confessed that his “English is not so good.” Which is understandable, as he was born in Montenegro and has spent his entire professional career in Spain.

So he does speak Spanish, and seeing that I have a passable knowledge of the Spanish language, I thought I could help Nikola make the transition to English.

Details aren’t known yet, but I’d say this makes it pretty clear that Nikola Mirotic is officially joining the Bulls next season. It’ll be nice to finally see him play after hearing so many good things about him the last few years.

What Does The Arron Afflalo Trade Rumor Mean?

arronafflalo

Are the Bulls putting a backup plan in place, or do they have something larger planned?

That’s the question I had to ask myself when I saw the latest report from Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski about the Bulls pursuing a trade for Orlando’s Arron Afflalo. For months we’ve heard all about the Bulls and their interest in guys like Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Love, but as any Bulls fan knows when it comes to bringing a top player to Chicago, backup plans are a must. So is that what Afflalo is? Here’s what Wojnarowski wrote.

The word right now is that Carmelo Anthony is leaning toward opting out of his deal with the Knicks and leaving New York. According to Woj, Chicago is one of the two favorites to land him.

A Man Rambles About The Bulls Season That Was

bullsseasonrecap

I was going to write this last night, but I felt it would be better to let my thoughts marinate overnight rather than just pulling the trigger. I was somewhat annoyed, after all, and I didn’t want to let any of that cloud my thoughts on the entire season.

But maybe I should have waited an extra day or two?
