RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

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.
