Bulls clear up Bogans confusion, sign Butler

In an effort to clarify shooting guard Keith Bogans' contractual situation -- the veteran was pulled off the court Friday afternoon, the first day of training camp -- the Bulls released a statement from general manager Gar Forman.

"Keith Bogans is under contract with the Bulls and we have a Dec. 19 option on that contract," said Forman. "At this time, we are exploring several options in finalizing our roster.

"We have always respected Keith's professionalism and we hope to have more clarity on this situation soon."

Bogans' team option for the upcoming season is for 1.73 million. While Bogans could still be brought back in a reserve role, sources indicate the Bulls and recently waived veteran shooting guard Rip Hamilton have mutual interest.

Hamilton, a longtime Piston, was bought out by Detroit earlier Friday. Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau refused to comment on Hamilton after Friday's practice.

Bulls first-round draft pick Jimmy Butler signed his rookie contract with the team, the organization announced Friday. The former Marquette standout should add depth at both wing positions.

Denver Nuggets fall in me vs. Nuggets challenge

The Denver Nuggets have been hot of late, winning seven of their last 10 games against pretty stiff competition. However, they were no match in a tough virtual matchup on Friday night. 

CSN Chicago associate producer Adam Yingst took on Nikola Jokic and company in #MeVsNuggets, a challenge in which the person watching must eat more chicken nuggets than Denver has field goals. 

Fighting a cold, Yingst powered through 41 chicken nuggets to seal the victory over Denver. If that isn't reminiscent of the Michael Jordan flu game, then we don't know what is.
