DeMar DeRozan is in the final season of his current contract with the Chicago Bulls and the two sides have yet to find common ground on an extension.
“The Bulls want to bring DeMar DeRozan back, whether that’s on an extension or free agency,” said Shams Charania. “They’ve been talking about an extension. I’m told the sides are apart right now on multiple fronts: years, salary. And also DeMar DeRozan wants to see where this Bulls’ team goes. They’re 0-1 to start the year. They had a players meeting after game 1 of the season.”
ESPN’s Brian Windhorst previously reported that DeRozan could become a trade candidate as the season progresses.
The Bulls already have signed Zach LaVine and Nikola Vucevic to multi-year deals.
