It came down to the last second, but Taj Gibson and the Bulls agreed to a 4-year extension worth up to $38 million.
Even though Gibson said before last night season's opener that he doubted he would sign an extension before the deadline, apparently his agent convinced him that it was the right move to make.
The Chicago Tribune's KC Johnson reported Taj as saying:
Gibson said Bartelstein told him he likely could earn more as a restricted free agent next summer "but you could end up playing in some hellhole."
The deal is reportedly worth $32 million guaranteed, with another $6 million in incentives.
