RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016-17

Subscribe now to see our 2016-17 outlook.

2015-16

Gibson enters his seventh season in the league coming off of ankle surgery after dealing with ankle problems for much of last season. He was limited to 67 games as a result, 17 of which were starts. Gibson's numbers took a step backwards as he averaged 10.3 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 0.6 steals, and 1.2 blocks in 27 minutes per game. He started 70 games in his rookie season but has only started 49 games in five seasons since then as he has become one of the main contributors off of the Bulls bench. The Bulls were already loaded up front with Gibson, Pau Gasol, Joakim Noah, and Nikola Mirotic, but they also added first-round pick Bobby Portis to the frontcourt mix as well. There was talk the Bulls were going to shop Gibson over the summer, but his ankle surgery likely ended that idea. He is slated to come off the bench again this season, but it's unclear how big his role will be under new coach Fred Hoiberg. There is a possibility that Gibson's name may come up in trade rumors again once he gets healthy.

2014-15

The 29-year-old power forward is entering his sixth season in the NBA, all with the Bulls. Last season, Gibson averaged 13.0 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 0.5 steals, and 1.4 blocks in 29 minutes per game while playing in all 82 contests. He shot just under 48 percent from the field while attempting 10.9 shots per game. Gibson had a career year from the charity stripe, getting to the line 3.4 times per game and connecting on 75 percent of his chances. Thanks to his high-energy defense and improved post game, he finished second in the Sixth Man of the Year voting. It was his most productive season to date, as he finished the year ranked 12th in defensive win shares. After Carlos Boozer was amnestied, Gibson looked like a lock to be Chicago's starting power forward for the 2014-15 season, but the acquisition of Pau Gasol has complicated that notion. Although Gibson will still be a major minutes eater for coach Tom Thibodeau's squad, Gasol should be the starter at power forward all season. Nikola Mirotic could swipe some playing time from Gibson but not until the talented European import can prove himself to Thibodeau. Gibson became much more aggressive on the offensive side of the ball last season, attempting four more shots per game than in 2012-13. His shot attempts are likely to drop with the additional firepower now in the frontcourt. Overall, there are no glaring weaknesses in Gibson's game, and he should continue to show improvement on an upgraded Bulls squad. His contributions on both sides of the ball will be welcomed in most formats as long as he gets the minutes.

2013-14

Signed to a four-year, $38 million extension last November, Gibson will be first off the bench in the frontcourt and should see a spike in minutes with his elite perimeter defense, which has become increasingly valuable against stretch-fours and the pick-and-roll. Carlos Boozer could be an amnesty clause victim next summer, meaning that Gibson's statistical ceiling, on par with career averages for points, rebounds, and blocks last year, could rise, especially now that a nagging knee injury has fully healed.

2012-13

For the first time in his three-year career, Gibson didn't start a game, getting into 63 of the Bulls' 66 games in 2011-12. He averaged 7.7 points and 5.3 rebounds in a career-low 20.4 minutes per game, but that lack of playing time was more circumstantial than performance-based. In fact, Gibson was a candidate for sixth man of the year throughout the season, averaging 13.6 points and 9.3 rebounds per 36 minutes. On top of that, his elite perimeter defense - especially when defending against the pick-and-roll - is one of the Bulls' most valuable assets With Boozer locked into a lucrative long-term deal, he won't be going anywhere, but his injury-prone ways should open up the occasional start for Gibson.

2011-12

After a promising rookie season, Gibson was pushed to bench duties following the arrival of Carlos Boozer. As a result, Gibsonís numbers were down across the board, as he finished with averages of 7.1 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in just under 22 minutes. Despite the apparent sophomore slump, Gibson still flashed his promise while spot starting for Boozer. In his 19 starts, Gibson averaged 10.2 points, 7.0 rebounds and 7.1 blocks. With Boozer locked into a lucrative long-term deal, he wonít be going anywhere, but his injury-prone ways should open up the occasional start for Gibson. Given his role as a bench player, Gibsonís immediate value is somewhat limited, but his value would skyrocket should Boozer go down with an injury.

2010-11

Gibson, selected 26th overall last year, became a surprise starter at power forward and joined Brad Miller as the only Bulls to play all 82 games. He led rookies with 7.5 rebounds per game and 49.4 percent shooting, while his 1.27 blocks per game ranked second. The addition of Boozer relegates Gibson to the bench, but he still should see decent minutes at various frontcourt positions and will start while Boozer is sidelined.
