The organization reached an agreement with Advocate Health Care for naming rights of the Advocate Center.

Bulls players and personnel will no longer need to travel to Deerfield to get some work in at the Berto Center, as the Advocate Center is just a stone's throw from the United Center, on South Wood Street between Monroe and Madison Streets.

The main level of the facility will have two full-size basketball courts, locker rooms, video rooms, coaches' offices, a weight room, therapeutic pools and a designated media room. The second floor houses executive offices, conference rooms, a cardio room and a green roof terrace.

The Bulls have trained at the Berto Center since 1992 and will try to sell the facility now that the Advocate Center is set to be completed in the next few months.
