Butler a good option, but not the only one

Jimmy Butler had a high-scoring game against Golden State and has the most upside of any shooting guard on Tuesday. But consider other talented, less expensive options before picking up the high-priced guard. DFS best buys (Insider)

Rose said he thinks bonding trips -- like the one the Bulls took on Saturday -- can help bring the players closer together on the floor. "This is the first time we ever did this with a Chicago team," Rose said. "Usually people do this with college teams or something like that, but for everyone to go out there and the coaches -- I think Fred's wife (Carol) was the only woman there -- it was like a guy bonding trip so it was all right."

Derrick Rose and his teammates really seemed to enjoy the Bulls' team bonding trip to Napa on Saturday. "It was fun," Rose said. "It was very, very fun. I'm happy that I went. I think the team enjoyed it. It was pretty cool to see everybody in their own little environment and just seeing the team get closer together."
