Taj Gibson agrees to 4-year, $38 million extension
There was more than just the drama of the game unfolding in Chicago as the Bulls kicked off their 2013 season. Not only was there a game to be played, but the issue of Taj Gibson's contract and the drama of whether or not he'd sign was dominating the night. At first, before the game, Gibson said he'd not change his mind and stand firm in his stance that he'd not be signing an extension, or at least the one currently offered. Well, he lied. After the game Gibson confirmed that he liked the way the team felt on the floor and that was enough, along with a re-evaluation of the numbers in the contract, and decided he'll sign the contract keeping him Chicago long term.
