Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops
Looking forward to watching Bulls rookie Marko Simonovic get some run? Sneak into the end of a shootaround or buy a ticket for the Windy City Bulls if that’s the case. According to Donovan, kid’s not ready.

David MacKay @DavidMacKayNBA
Zion Williamson crossed 300 lbs this offseason? Damn. For point of reference, he and Zach LaVine are both 6’6″ and play an explosive game. Imagine if LaVine pushed another bill and didn’t change his game at all. I worry for Zion’s knees. – 5:36 PM

Rob Schaefer @rob_schaef
No specific minutes restriction for Patrick Williams, but Billy Donovan said he’ll monitor his conditioning. Added Williams probably won’t play long (“8-9 minute”) spurts as he works back to where he was. – 5:34 PM

KC Johnson @KCJHoop
Billy Donovan said while Patrick Williams’ game conditioning isn’t yet up to speed, there are no set minutes restrictions. Donovan did say he’d be smart in Williams’ usage. – 5:32 PM

Darnell Mayberry @DarnellMayberry
Donovan says Patrick Williams is good to go. Nothing holding him back in terms of a minutes restriction. But they will monitor him throughout. – 5:32 PM

KC Johnson @KCJHoop
Pistons coach Dwane Casey, who spent 7 seasons with DeMar DeRozan in Toronto, said he rarely waits after his shootaround to see other players but did so today to catch up with DeRozan. – 5:31 PM

Rod Beard @detnewsRodBeard
#Pistons Dwane Casey on relaxed dress code: “There is something to be said about dressing well and distinguishing ourselves. We’re the NBA — we represent a city, a state or our organization.” – 5:25 PM

Rod Beard @detnewsRodBeard
#Pistons Dwane Casey on opening the season: “It’s important that we jell early, because if you look at our schedule … that may have caused some of those nerves too.” – 5:25 PM

Rod Beard @detnewsRodBeard
#Pistons Dwane Casey: “If I had a veteran team, we probably wouldn’t have gone as hard (in practice) and done two-a-days.” – 5:23 PM

Rod Beard @detnewsRodBeard
#Pistons Dwane Casey on playing the Bulls twice in a row: “It’s good to concentrate on one team…they have a group. People forget that DeMar and Vucevic played together in college.” – 5:22 PM

Rod Beard @detnewsRodBeard
#Pistons Dwane Casey on opener: “You wanted to be healthy and get as much as you can from those groups together. It’s good to get as many people as we can get together back healthy.” – 5:21 PM

Rod Beard @detnewsRodBeard
#Pistons Dwane Casey on relationship with DeMar DeRozan: “I did stay around after shootaround to give him a hug…I took him under my wing in Toronto.” – 5:20 PM

Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
Dwane Casey said he stayed after shootaround to give DeMar DeRozan a hug. “One of the nicest young men I’ve been around.” – 5:20 PM

James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Dwane Casey said he never likes to see friends after shootaround during the season, but he made an exception for DeMar DeRozan today. – 5:20 PM

Jason Walker @JasonWalkerNBA
I see the Bulls are “this year’s Hawks”, though I can’t remember anybody calling the Hawks “this year’s anything”, at least not anything good before last season. Do hope the Bulls don’t go 12-20 out of the gate, because that will be a lot noisier than when the Hawks did last year – 4:38 PM

“Nobody wants to be known as a fringe playoff team. We all want to be winners and compete for championships.”

Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
It’s pretty cool that basically every major outlet has a big Bulls story today. I don’t know if this is gonna work or not, but it’s been like a decade since that fan base was genuinely this excited, so I’m here for it. – 2:44 PM
