Taj Gibson, Bulls agree to four-year, $38 million extension

Thursday November 1st, 2012

Taj Gibson has reversed course and agreed to an extension with the Chicago Bulls. The Chicago Tribune's K.C. Johnson reported the news via Twitter following the Bulls' 93-87 win over the Sacramento Kings on opening night.



"I looked at the numbers and that's a lot of money, especially the security," Gibson told the Chicago Tribune. Gibson was a valuable contributor on last season's Bulls team, averaging a career-best .495 field goal percentage while mostly coming off the bench in relief of Carlos Boozer. Gibson has said that he wants to retire as a Chicago Bull, and the respect appears to be mutual between player and team.
