The Chicago Bulls have been reportedly making calls since Sunday trying to ship Pau Gasol before the trade deadline, according to The Vertical. With Gasol openly admitting to opting out this summer, his hints couldn’t be any clearer that he intends on leaving for a championship caliber team.
The Chicago Bulls are aggressively shopping All-Star forward Pau Gasol, league sources told The Vertical. Gasol is expected to decline the player option on the $7.4 million owed him in 2016-17.– Adrian Wojnarowski
According to @WojVerticalNBA, the Bulls are “aggressively shopping” Gasol. Bulls $4.5M over tax. If they succeed, best bet is out of tax.

Pau Gasol has been linked to trade rumors with the New York Knicks. The Bulls will have a hard time finding a suitor willing to give up a whole lot for a player that intends on becoming a free agent in a few months.
