Bulls in the process of finalizing a free agent deal with Pau Gasol. It will not be a sign-and-trade with the Lakers.
Gasol previously turned down a 2 year, $10 M-plus deal from the Lakers and a $11 M-plus a year contract from Atlanta. He had stated that he wanted to play for a contender, so that, in addition to a larger contract, likely played a major role in his decision. The Bulls will be looking for big contributions from their new center in his first year with the team. ANALYST: Ben Diamond
Rajai Davis is coming out of the game after limping to first on single.
Anthony Gose has been platooning with Rajai Davis in center field, and Gose will likely have that job to himself if Davis misses any time. Gose stole his third base of the season Friday, and that will likely be his primary fantasy contribution going forward. Gose is widely available in shallow leagues and probably should be added if Davis goes on the DL; just know his batting average will hurt you. Analysis: Steve Pimental
