Bulls Rumors: Thibodeau, Hinrich, Korver

The basketball world is focused on the draft at the moment, but while Chicago waits to pick at No. 29, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune has checked in with a column full of Bulls-related items. You can continue to follow tonight's draft results here and any last-minute rumors right here, but in the meantime, let's round up the highlights from Johnson….

  • Although the Bulls have exercised Tom Thibodeau's option for 2012/13, extension talks between the team and coach have stalled. One source warned Johnson that a lack of a deal is typical at this stage of negotiations, but there's still significant work to do before the two sides reach an agreement.
  • Chicago will pursue former Bull Kirk Hinrich in free agency, though he's not the team's only target and he won't be offered the full mid-level.
  • The Bulls have until July 10th to make decisions on non-guaranteed contracts for Kyle Korver, Ronnie Brewer, and C.J. Watson. None of the three are expected to return, though there's still a slight possibility Korver is retained.
