News: Butler is dealing with a strained groin, which is keeping him from participating in Team USA training camp, Yahoo! Sports' Marc Spears reports.
Impact: It was announced earlier Sunday that Butler would no longer be with Team USA as a Select Team member, and this news reveals the reason behind his departure. While the injury isn't anything that should hamper him long-term, by the time he returns to full health, Team USA training camp will likely have concluded.

News: Butler has decided not to be a part of the USA's Select Team this summer in Las Vegas, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Impact: News on the exact reason why Butler will not participate has not been released, but it's likely that he wants to spend the NBA offseason resting. He'll look to improve on a season that yielded 13.1 points, 4.9 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.9 steals and 0.5 steals per game.

News: Noah (knee) continues to rehab from arthroscopic surgery and said he feels "great", the Chicago Tribune reports.
Impact: Noah had the minor surgery at the end of the season and should be ready in plenty of time for the start of next season. He was forced to play heavy minutes last season as the Bulls didn't have much depth up front, but he might see a little decrease in playing time this season with the additions of Pau Gasol and Nikola Mirotic giving the Bulls plenty of depth to go along with Noah and Taj Gibson.

News: The Chicago Bulls say they have signed McDermott, their first-round draft pick and last season's college player of the year.
Impact: Terms of the deal involving the 6-foot-8 forward from Creighton weren't released. The Bulls acquired 22-year-old McDermott after Denver drafted him with the 11th overall pick, then quickly traded him to Chicago. As a Creighton senior last season, McDermott averaged a nation-leading 26.7 points, becoming one of eight players in NCAA history to score more than 3,000 career points.

News: The Bulls announced Tuesday's signing of free-agent guard Aaron Brooks.
Impact: The 6-foot, six-year NBA veteran last season averaged 9 points while splitting time with Denver and Houston. Terms were not disclosed.

News: Butler was named to the USA Select Team that will practice against the national team in preparation for the FIBA World Cup, ESPN Chicago reports.
Impact: Butler is one of the best defensive players in the league and he will certainly help provide a challenge in practice. He took a big step forward last season as he was named to the NBA All-Defensive Second Team and is hoping to now take a step forward offensively this season.
Tue. July 22, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Brooks has agreed to terms with the Chicago Bulls, the Bulls' official site reports. The details of the contract have yet to be disclosed.
Impact: The six-year NBA vet spent time with the Rockets and Nuggets during the 2013-14 season. Brooks averaged 9.0 points and 3.2 assists in 22 minutes per game. He will provide the Bulls with a veteran point guard to play behind Derrick Rose and Kirk Hinrich. Most of Brooks' value to the team comes as depth insurance if Rose were to get injured again.

News: The Chicago Bulls have re-signed guard Kirk Hinrich to a two-year deal.
Impact: The Bulls announced the move Monday, along with the signing of second-round pick Cameron Bairstow. A person with knowledge of the deal tells The Associated Press that Hinrich will make $2.7 million next season. The contract includes a player option for the second year. The person requested anonymity because the team does not publicly comment on contract details. Hinrich has spent nine of his 11 seasons with the Bulls.
Mon. July 21, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Hinrich officially re-signed with the Bulls on Monday, the team's official website reports.
Impact: Hinrich has spent nine of his 11 NBA seasons with the Bulls, for whom he made 61 starts and averaged 9.1 points and 3.9 assists last season. However, with Derrick Rose (knee) returning from injury, Hinrich is expected to serve as Chicago's primary back-up point guard this year, although both his distribution and defensive skills should allow them to play together in certain lineups.

News: Snell posted 20 points (6-14 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 5-5 FT), three rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 31 minutes during the Bulls' 80-61 loss versus the Kings at the Las Vegas Summer League on Saturday.
Impact: Snell averaged 20.0 points (46.6 FG, 50.0 3Pt, 83.3 FT), 4.0 rebounds, and 2.4 assists in five games at the Las Vegas Summer League. Expect him to receive ample playing time in his sophomore season, especially if he can continue to improve and pour it on offensively the way he has during the summer league.
Sat. July 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Brooks is closing in on a free-agent contract with the Bulls, ESPN's Marc Stein reports.
Impact: Brooks will provide the Bulls with backcourt depth off the bench. The 29-year-old averaged 9.0 points and 3.2 assists last season, while splitting time between the Rockets and the Nuggets. Unless another injury befalls Derrick Rose (knee), it's hard to see Brooks getting the minutes necessary to be a viable fantasy contributor.

News: Gibson (ankle) won't see his role change and will play significant minutes again next season, ESPN Chicago reports.
Impact: Although coach Tom Thibodeau also said he won't rule out Gibson starting, it would seem unlikely that he would surpass Pau Gasol, as Gibson is used to coming off the bench and Gasol is not. Gibson, Gasol, Joakim Noah, and Nikola Mirotic will all share playing time in the frontcourt, and although that would seem to indicate Gibson will see less playing time than he did last year, he's a favorite of Thibodeau's and will still see plenty of minutes.
Thu. July 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Snell posted 18 points (5-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 6-7 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, one steal, and three blocks in 33 minutes during the Bulls' 79-69 win versus the 76ers at the Las Vegas Summer League on Thursday.
Impact: Snell started at shooting guard and continued his strong play in the summer league. Expect him to receive plenty of playing time going forward in the Las Vegas Summer League tournament as he looks to improve his game heading into his sophomore season.

News: The Bulls waived forward Lou Amundson and guards Ronnie Brewer and Mike James on Tuesday.
Impact: They are clearing salary-cap space to make room for the signing of free-agent center Pau Gasol and the first NBA contract for 2011 draft pick Nikola Mirotic.

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."

News: Mirotic signed a three-year, $17 million-plus deal with the Bulls, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports.
Impact: Widely considered one of the best players in Europe, Mirotic will finally join the Bulls, after he was drafted all the way back in 2011. The Real Madrid star is an excellent outside shooter and should slide into a versatile stretch-four role for Chicago. While he'll likely come off the bench as a rookie, Mirotic is far more developed than most European prospects, so it wouldn't be a surprise if he emerges as a primary contributor.

News: Hinrich will sign with the Bulls later in the week, the Chicago Tribune reports.
Impact: Hinrich will return to Chicago after appearing in 73 games last season and averaging 9.1 points, 2.6 rebounds and 3.9 assists. He started 61 contests but figures to hold down a bench role next season, assuming, of course, Derrick Rose remains healthy. The length and dollar amount of the deal are yet to be released, but details will be forthcoming later in the week.

News: Snell played 32 minutes Saturday against the Clippers in the Las Vegas Summer League and scored 27 points (10-14 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 2-4 FT) to go along with four rebounds and one steal.
Impact: Snell was on fire Saturday and showed a great touch from behind the arc. The Bulls need offense and Snell could see himself gaining more playing time this season if he can continue to improve offensively.
Sat. July 12, 2014 | STATS
News: Gasol says he has decided to join the Chicago Bulls.
Impact: Gasol announced on his verified Twitter account on Saturday that he was looking forward to the ''new chapter'' of his career in Chicago. He says the choice wasn't easy and he decided on the Bulls ''after meditating a lot.'' The 7-foot Gasol averaged 17.4 points and 9.7 rebounds in 60 games last season with Los Angeles.
