Bulls center Joakim Noah wants a long-term deal with the team and hopes to have one in place by the start of the season. Noah says his agent, Donald Dell, has already begun discussing a possible contract extension with Chicago general manager Gar Forman.
"Of course that's the goal," Noah said. "I'm not really worried about it. I think everything's going to happen with time and at the end of the day, I'm really excited about the upcoming season."
