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
