Gibson, Bulls agree to 4-year extension

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

Taj Gibson has agreed to a 4-year, $38 million contract extension with the Chicago Bulls, just before the NBA deadline.

Gibson broke the news Wednesday night following a season-opening win over Sacramento, after emerging from a meeting with executive vice president of basketball operations John Paxson and general manager Gar Forman. The new deal kicks in after the season, and it locks in 1 of Chicago's key players for the long term.

It was a stunning turn considering Gibson said before the game that he didn't expect an agreement to be reached and that he was turning down Chicago's offer.
