More ‘Kevin Love to the Bulls’ rumors
Another day, another rumor that Kevin Love is headed to the Bulls.
Despite a source telling the Chicago Sun-Times quite the contrary, the latest report by Chris Sheridan has the Bulls parting with top-pick Doug McDermott, Euro import Nikola Mirotic and Taj Gibson for the All-Star forward.
It all seems highly unlikely considering the recent signings of rookies McDermott and Mirotic, who by NBA rules cannot be traded for 30 days.
Plus, Gibson has reportedly been told numerous times he’s going nowhere.
Taj Gibson said every time he works out at Berto Center, team officials tell him not to worry about rumors.

On Tuesday, ESPN reported that the Wolves were seeking a package that included Gibson and Jimmy Butler.
Minnesota has reportedly been in talks with the Cavs and Warriors about a possible Love trade. No doubt, a third party would sweeten the take for the Wolves.
All the "Bulls are back in the Love sweepstakes'' is coming from the Minnesota side. Don't believe the hype.
