Believe it or not, Rajon Rondo just might return to the Bulls next year

File this under “Things I wouldn’t have believed two months ago”: the Chicago Bulls likely want Rajon Rondo to return next year. In his end-of-season address with Gar Forman, John Paxson said that there was a “really good chance” that the Bulls would exercise their second-year option with Rondo.

Chicago Bulls: amid disappointing season, organization at crossroads

With the Chicago Bulls struggling to a 22-23 record at the midpoint of the season (8th in the Eastern Conference), the front office is approaching an interesting decision regarding both its immediate and distant future.

Landing Dwyane Wade could set up the Bulls for a big future signing

Dwyane Wade signing with the Chicago Bulls is so crazy, so anti "younger and more athletic", so far from where the Bulls need to go in terms of building a competitive team for the long term...that it just might work.

Rondo a change of pace, not a savior for Bulls

Love it or hate it, the Chicago Bulls certainly appear to have stabilized the point guard position after a tumultuous couple of weeks. Following their trade of former franchise cornerstone Derrick Rose, the Bulls acquired erstwhile Boston Celtic/Dallas Maverick/Sacramento King guard Rajon Rondo to presumably take over as the team’s floor general for the next two years. And in this new salary cap era, a two- ...
