News: Gasol says signing for the Chicago Bulls over NBA champion San Antonio or Oklahoma City came down to a gut decision. Gasol says on Tuesday that after speaking with Bulls players Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah, "instinct told me to pick Chicago." Impact: The 7-foot (2.13-meter) Spanish forward says Chicago was a logical choice since "without doubt it is one of the championship favorites in the East alongside Cleveland." The 34-year-old Gasol, who departs the Los Angeles Lakers after five-plus seasons, says while the Spurs and Thunder were options "nothing is guaranteed wherever you sign. I'm happy with my choice."(STATS, 10:58am)

News: Gasol will sign with the Chicago Bulls, per his personal Twitter account. Impact: Gasol was courted by the Spurs, Lakers and Thunder, among others, but he'll head to Chicago to team with Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson to form one of the more potent frontcourts in the Eastern Conference. While the 34-year-old's best days are behind him, he's still an extremely talented offensive center, and playing in coach Tom Thibodeau's system should mask his defensive deficiencies. In 60 games for the Lakers last season, Gasol averaged 17.4 points and 9.7 rebounds while shooting 48.0 percent from the field.(RotoWire, )
