After stating his intention to play for the Chicago Bulls on Saturday, contract information for former Los Angeles Lakers big man Pau Gasol's deal with the team has now been leaked.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, Gasol will average just over $7 million per year on his new deal with the Bulls:
Free agent forward Pau Gasol is finalizing a three-year, $22M-plus contract with the Chicago Bulls, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

The Lakers and Bulls were said to be in advanced sign-and-trade talks involving Gasol as late as the middle of the day on Saturday. If they were to have pulled something off, Gasol could have very well picked up a deal in the $10 million per year range.
Regardless, Gasol is exactly where he wants to be - joining a healthy Derrick Rose, 2013-14 Kia NBA Defensive Player of the Year Joakim Noah, and Taj Gibson on one of the most talented teams in a reshuffled NBA Eastern Conference.
