The bomb was dropped earlier this week, and nuclear winter has begun for NBA labor negotiations. Eventually I'll start to get creative in this space, which is likely only good news for me and me alone. Sorry.

The actual Bulls-related information lately surrounds the possibility of players heading overseas to ply their trade. Unsurprisingly it's the international-based Bulls looking first:

Joakim Noah has said to a French publication (via PBT) that he's considering his childhood team in that country, though only in a whole-season scenario.  

Luol Deng's agent is talking up the possibility of his client playing abroad, and just today another report surfaced that Deng's receiving strong interest from Turkey. Though, like seemingly everything concerning Deng, insurance could be an issue.

You can check out a handy guide to the NBA players currently playing overseas at SBNation bro-site Welcome To Loud City. So far the only Bulls defector is Scal. And currently running at the mothership is a weekly breakdown of Euroleague action, which includes Bulls draftee Nikola Mirotic playing for Real Madrid.
