The Bulls are putting the band back together. But will it be able to hit the high notes?

That’s the big question as the Bulls, according to league sources and published reports, agreed Wednesday to contracts with their new Mr. Fabulous, Jimmy Butler, and fellow sole man Mike Dunleavy.

Teams are not permitted to discuss or officially sign contracts with …

The Bulls are back! Well, perhaps that may be a bit premature given how they endured in New Orleans after Anthony Davis was injured and survived in Orlando because a young team with an interim coach panicked. And then Tuesday the Bulls pulled away from a deteriorating Sacramento Kings team apparently within days of playing for its third coach this …

The Bulls Friday were hearing about pay quite a bit.

There was the potential payback to LeBron James, now with the Cavs, after trying to defeat the Miami Heat the last four seasons.

And there was the issue of pay to Jimmy Butler, who was negotiating for a contract extension as the minutes ticked away to the Oct. 31 deadline. …

MADRID–Derrick Rose concluded the USA’s gold medal winning journey through the FIBA Basketball World Cup Sunday night in this decorative Castilian capital city with his second scoreless game of the tournament in the USA’s overwhelming 129-92 victory over Serbia. Rose finished nine games averaging 4.8 points and 3.1 assists while shooting 25.4 percent and one of 19 on threes, missing …

It’s as if Derrick Rose Tuesday was saying in the USA’s 119-76 victory over Slovenia, “That, that’s what you wanted? Just that? Scoring, beating guys to the basket, highlight plays and an easy 12 points and team high five assists in 18 minutes? That’s what all the fuss was about? That, I can do anytime.”

It’s been a curious couple …

That’s why the Bulls acquired Pau Gasol and stuck with Taj Gibson, Jimmy Butler and Doug McDermott. It’s why they also lured Nikola Mirotic over from his team in Spain and took a chance on much traveled Aaron Brooks. And also why the Bulls may not be done yet.

Derrick Rose is going to have those kinds of games like …

We forget sometimes these days because it’s basically been so long. But there’s nothing like Derrick Rose blowing past a defender and power dunking, like he did early in Saturday’s USA 114-55 victory over Finland to open the FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain.

There’s certainly no one on the USA Basketball team as fast as Rose, and when Rose …

Derrick Rose didn’t have a very good game Tuesday in USA Basketball’s 101-71 exhibition victory over Slovenia, the final tuneup before the start of the FIBA World Cup of Basketball Saturday.

Rose scored three points in 20 minutes with three turnovers, missing all three of his field goal attempts coming off the bench behind Kyrie Irving. Rose also had an …

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 …

It hasn’t been a perfect week for the Bulls, though on national ABC Sunday Joakim Noah’s play overshadowed that of LeBron James in a Bulls overtime win. And on national TNT Thursday, Noah missed a triple-double by one assist in the 111-87 victory over the Houston Rockets and an uninspiring Dwight Howard.

Mike Dunleavy came back from a 10-stitch …
