Bulls officials are headed to Los Angeles to meet Pau Gasol.
Fantasy owners should not be encouraging this signing as it would all but stymie the chance of Taj Gibson beginning the year as a starter, as the team has said he would. Gasol would be a big upgrade from Carlos Boozer and his negative 4.51 real plus-minus rating last year (81st worst out of 88 power forwards). Boozer currently has one more year left on his contract before becoming an unrestricted free agent and would likely get moved in a sign-and-trade or released under the amnesty clause should Gasol decide to sign with Chicago.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Mo Williams (knee) will play Friday against the Wizards.
As he has been playing through this knee issue, Williams' shooting percentage has been dreadfully low (23-percent). Considering this, do exactly what the Hornets are doing: play him with caution. Williams is a tealented guard, but be reasonable with your expectations, as he has struggled with his shot while dealing with the injury. Analysis: Dom Murtha
Brad Miller not in the Mariners lineup Friday because of an illness.
Considering Miller committed an atrocious 18 errors in a mere 107 games last season, one would be led to believe that he has the plate presence of Tony Gwynn in order to hold down the Mariners starting shortstop position, however that is not at all the case, as Miller hit a lowly .221, with 10 homers, 36 RBI, and boasted an inexcuseable .288 OBP in 2014. Stay away from him in drafts. Analysis: Dom Murtha
