The Bulls now want to resign Pau Gasol


Pau Gasol will finish the season at Chicago and now the Bulls are trying to re-sing him with a new deal in the summer as the “Chicago Tribune” reports.

Gasol will be 36 years old in July and as he admitted after the end of the trade deadline: “I’m happy here. I like a lot of things about my situation here. Now let’s see if we can make the basketball better. That would be ideal. If we can fix that, it’s obviously something I would want to continue to be a part of.”

Coach Fred Hoiberg added: “Pau obviously is having a great year. He had a really good season last year and carried it over to the summer where he helped his team win a European championship. I think he has gotten better as the season has gone on. I love what Pau brings. He’s a guy who can get Jimmy (Butler) easy baskets with his ability to throw the lob passes and his ability to play-make from all over the floor. Everybody in this organization values Pau a lot”.

And Gasol wants to win with the Bulls: “I don’t want to give up on this team just because we’re going through some difficulties. Things really haven’t turned out the way I wanted them to. But there are things that I couldn’t anticipate. All I can do is continue to give my best. And I do still believe we can still turn this thing around a little bit or a lot and put ourselves in a good position”.
