Bulls, Joakim Noah talking extensionPosted by Inside Hoops
Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah wants to sign a long-term deal with the team and hopes to have one done before the season begins in October.
Noah said his agent, Donald Dell, has already started discussing the parameters of a deal with Bulls general manager Gar Forman and the 25-year-old is confident the parties can work something out in the near future…
Noah, who will make $3.1 million this season in the fourth year of his rookie deal, would become a restricted free agent next season unless the Bulls extend his contract.
The ongoing negotiations are a major reason why Noah decided not to play for the French National Team this summer during the World Championships in Turkey.
