Bulls have not guaranteed Pau Gasol a starting job


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Though the Bulls made him their marquee addition this offseason, the Chicago Sun-Times reports Tuesday the team has made no guarantees about Pau Gasol's role.

Gasol, who has started all but 13 of his NBA games in his 14 seasons, has not been guaranteed a starting spot for the Bulls this season. He joins a crowded frontcourt that already features Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson, as well as fellow additions Doug McDermott and Nikola Mirotic. Gasol will likely vie for a starting spot with Gibson, but should see time at power forward and center.

Gasol comes to the Bulls on a three-year deal, after averaging 17.4 points, 9.7 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game in 60 appearances -- all starts -- with the Lakers last season. 


Report: Taj Gibson likely to start over Carlos Boozer next season

"I mean, this will be exciting," Gibson said. "This is what I've always thought about. When I started [six games] for Boozer when he was hurt during the season, I just know how excited I was, how good it felt to come to the arena."

The 28-year-old suffered a left ankle injury in an elimination game against the Bulls in late April and is in his final week of rehab. Gibson should be ready for the start of next season.
