CHICAGO (AP) — Weighing a handful of attractive offers, Pau Gasol says a gut feeling led him to sign with the Chicago Bulls.

Gasol and newcomer Nikola Mirotic were at the United Center on Friday for a pair of press conferences announcing their new contracts. Gasol was a free agent after playing for the Los Angeles Lakers the previous six-plus seasons, and Mirotic was a 2011 first-round draft pick.

The 7-foot Gasol is a four-time All-Star who averaged 17.4 points and 9.7 rebounds in 60 games last season with Los Angeles. He says he thinks the Bulls have all the pieces they need to win the championship.

The 6-10 Mirotic played for Real Madrid last season and shot 46.1 percent from 3-point range.
