Phil Jackson knows greatness. He’s seen it in Pau Gasol, who helped Jackson’s Lakers win two NBA titles. And when Gasol’s career is finished, presumably after this run with the Bulls, Jackson believes there’ll be a place for Gasol among the immortals of the game.

“He will be a Hall of Fame entry after his career,” Jackson wrote me in …

Billy Baron isn’t the next Mike Smrek, but he hopes to at least get the chance Smrek did.

Smrek, a seven-footer, played one season for the Bulls in 1985-86 as a rookie and was the last player from Canisius College to play in the NBA. Baron, who is playing for the Bulls summer league team, hopes to be the next.…

Since Carlos Boozer was signed by Chicago as a free agent in 2010, statistically one of the most successful free agent acquisitions in franchise history, the Bulls were just one of four NBA teams to win at least 200 games. The others were the Spurs and Heat, who won three of the four championships, and the Thunder, who went to …

The NBA draft overall has not been particularly kind to the Bulls.

Sure, it did help them to all their six championships with the drafting of Michael Jordan in 1984. And it did produce the only other MVP in franchise history with Derrick Rose in 2008. There was a big one with Scottie Pippen in 1987 and later residuals from …

The Bulls are getting the band back together. At least with a few new members.

The Bulls Sunday agreed to terms on a two-year deal with veteran point guard Kirk Hinrich. Former first round draft pick Nikola Mirotic also posted on his Twitter account–as Pau Gasol did Saturday–that he was signing with the Bulls. Mirotic’s deal is estimated at three …

The Bulls apparently are about to introduce the next Big Three: Joakim Noah, Taj Gibson and Pau Gasol.

Not two, not three, not four, not five, not six, not seven… wins hopefully by Thanksgiving.

Gasol, 34, the four-time All-Star who vied with Dwight Howard four years ago to be considered the league’s best center when he helped the Los Angeles …

So LeBron James is returning to play for the Cleveland Cavaliers. It’s been long speculated, though few believed it would occur this soon. Though few saw Dwyane Wade’s knees giving out so quickly, as well.

So now the questions come fast:

What will Carmelo Anthony do? Take an offer from the Bulls to start the Greatest Central Division Rivalry of …

I’ve been to a lot of bad Bulls drafts. Mark Randall, Byron Houston, Travis Knight, Marcus Fizer and Tyrus Thomas come to mind. Thursday night was a very good one as the Bulls pulled out a minor coup and traded their Nos. 16 and 19 draft picks for the rights to national player of the year, Doug McDermott of Creighton.…

Bulls center Joakim Noah has another accolade to add to his best professional season thus far, this time as a member of the 2013-14 All-NBA First Team.

Noah, previously named the 2013-14 Kia NBA Defensive Player of the Year, joined Kevin Durant, LeBron James, James Harden and Chris Paul on the first team, the NBA announced on Wednesday. He appeared …

As much as ever, NBA teams value talented and able shooters for the way they can affect the game.

That’s just part of why Creighton product Doug McDermott believes he is capable of making an impact as he enters the professional ranks.

“I think I’d fit in great,” McDermott said of the Bulls at the recent NBA Draft Combine. “I …
