Jeff Van Gundy: Chicago is where back-up point guards go to get paid

As Derrick Rose misses yet another NBA postseason, I guess he can take solace in the fact that he’s indirectly and inadvertently helped journeyman point guards find their way in this league.

Joakim Noah and Centers Who Know How to Pass

Bulls emphasizing trade options over luxury tax avoidance

The Chicago Bulls, like every team, would like to avoid the luxury tax. Not only are luxury-tax penalties already costlier than ever, repeater penalties loom.

With all due respect to the...
