The Bulls and Bobby Portis remain engaged in contract talks leading up to today's 7:00 EST deadline.
Portis is eligible to sign his rookie scale extension and there's more traction here than there has been in other situations like this around the league. We'll see if something can get done, as two willing parties usually find a way. Portis will be the backup power forward when the Bulls are healthy but he'll have a shot at late-middle round value to begin the year and should be able to bully his way to top-100 output, even as a high-minute reserve.
