More Bulls players could take up permanent residences in Chicago

The Bulls announced in early June that they will be moving their practice facility from its current suburban Deerfield location to a new location in downtown Chicago, ESPN Chicago reported.

The facility change has some predicting that more Bulls players will purchase real estate in Chicago in order to be closer to the practice location, the Chicago Tribune reported.

The only Bulls player who currently owns property in the city is MVP Derrick Rose, who according to the Tribune bought a high-floor condo in Trump Tower last December for $2.82 million.

The northern suburbs of Chicago are home to three Bulls players - forward Kyle Korver, forward Luol Deng and center Joakim Noah. Korver, who is newly married, has recently put his home in Glencoe on the market for $1.47 million, according to the Tribune. Noah owns a home in Bannockburn, and Deng owns two homes in Northbrook.

If more Bulls players move into the city, they may consider following Rose's lead and invest in real estate in the downtown area. Chicago's River North neighborhood is ideal for the younger, more affluent crowd. The area is known for having some of the city's most popular clubs and best dining, making it a trendy location for upscale young professionals.
