WHITE SOXCharlotte A
The Knights saw their season-long, five-game winning streak come to an end Tuesday afternoon as they dropped a 5-2 decision to visiting Durham.

Gaby Hernandez, who was making his White Sox debut, had won a combined 20 games over the previous two seasons in the Pacific Coast League. But the former third-round pick by the Mets 2004 is with his fourth franchise in as many seasons and was not impressive in his Knights Stadium debut. He allowed four runs on six hits and three walks over four innings.

While a trio of relievers kept the Bulls largely in check over the final five innings, the Knights couldnt do much after scoring single runs in each of the first two innings. Alejandro De Aza, Gookie Dawkins, who has hit safely in five of six games, and Stefan Gartrell each had a pair of hits but it was enough as the Knights went 1-for-9 with runners in scoring position.
Winston-Salem A
The Dashs Tuesday-morning at Potomac was postponed due to rain. The game will be made up on Wednesday evening as part of a doubleheader beginning at 6 p.m.

Could the Bulls go after Chris Bosh for next season?

Could the Bulls go after Chris Bosh for next season?

The basketball world woke up Friday morning to a report from ESPN senior writer Marc Stein saying the Bulls may go after Chris Bosh for the 2017-18 NBA season.

It's surprising and intriguing for multiple reasons: 

1) Bosh was believed to have played his last days in the NBA due to blod clot issues.

2) The Bulls are at something of a franchise crossroads, sitting as the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference following Thursday's games and still determining what the right step is for the near future and the long term. 

3) Bosh will be 33 in March and hasn't played in an NBA game in nearly a year (last appeared with the Heat Feb. 9, 2016).

But Stein said the Heat are not planning on waiving Bosh before March 1, so he wouldn't be eligible to join the roster of a playoff contender.

Stein then says: If Bosh does return to the hardwood, "word is that the Chicago Bulls are already plotting a run and will be at the front of the line to try to sign him."

Bosh is an 11-time All-Star who has averaged 19.2 points and 8.5 rebounds per game throughout his career. He helped the Heat win several titles as part of the Big Three with Dwyane Wade and LeBron James.

Bosh was also just in Chicago visiting Wade earlier this month:

Could he form another Big Three with Wade and Jimmy Butler, this time in Chicago?

It's worth noting Wade just turned 35 earlier this week and will be in his 14th NBA season next year.
