This guy can light it up.  He gets 4rpg because he hangs around the 3 point line most of the game.  He will really open things up for the Bulls.

Who will come off the bench? Nikola, I'm assuming. It's not like Gasol is going to start at 5, there is Noah.

Can't see Gasol coming off the bench

Suddenly the Bulls have all sorts of offensive weapons.

He'll have to.  They promised Taj Gibson the start.  

So I'm guessing Nikola will come off the bench 4 and Gasol will be the bench 5 and McDermott will play the bench 3.  

Starting lineup will be 

Derrick Rose

Jimmy Butler

Doug McDermott
Taj Gibson
Joakim Noah 

Bench:
Kirk Hinrich

Mike Dunleavy Jr

Tony Snell

Nikola Mirotic

Pau Gasol 

 


Not bad at all.

I don't think a promise to Taj means things can change, this is the NBA, not a Hollywood movie.

That report that Gibson was promised a starting job has been heavily refuted. Everyone (including Bulls fans) expects Gasol to start and I think he signed there with assurance that he will be starting.

Will be interesting to see what Thibs can do defensively next year.  He has got some weak links there.  No question the offense should be alot better though.

Yes but Thibs is also a defensive coach and WILL bench you for being unable to play defense.  Pau hasn't been able to play defense on switches since 2011.  Gibson is better defensively as well as the more athletic and better rotation defense player and he's proven in Thibs system. 

I doubt a defensive guru like Thibs would trust Gasol's defense at the 4 over Gibson's. 

So I wouldn't doubt that Thibs has Gasol coming off the bench and starts Gibson.  He has no reason not to.

Gasol starting at the 4 would be a huge mistake

Gasol coming off the bench as a center tho... That's some deadly [expletive]in depth

Contract Nikola Mirotic signed with Bulls today is 3 years, $16.6M plus incentives. Bulls can pay $600K toward European buyout as well.
