NBA News: Chicago Bulls And Center Joakim Noah Talking Contract Extension

Noah has said he would like the extension to be done by the start of the season.

Noah said his agent has already started discussing the groundwork of a deal with Bulls general manager Gar Forman. Noah is confident the parties can work something out in the near future.

Noah will make $3.1 million this season in the fourth year of his rookie deal, and would become a restricted free agent next season unless the Bulls extend his contract.
