The New Orleans Saints have agreed to terms on a three-year, $20 million contract with free-agent center Chris Bosh, league sources told ESPN.
New Orleans is expected to use the money on a roster overhaul that includes free agents and trade additions.
The Pelicans, the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference, have until Friday to make a decision on whether to keep Bosh or trade him to another team, according to league sources.
Bosh is due $19 million this season.
The deal will make Bosh the highest-paid center in NBA history, and it will likely be the largest contract for a player on the New Orleans roster.
Bryant, 28, played a key role in the Pelicans’ run to a championship last season, averaging 9.7 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game.
Bouches’ contract with the Bulls is worth about $15.4 million over the three-plus seasons it will be in place, according the league source.
Buchanan will be the seventh player to sign a three-, four- or five-year deal with the Pelicans in the past three years.
In that span, the Pelicans have added veteran guard Quincy Pondexter, center Tyreke Evans and veteran power forward C.J. Watson.
Bourque, who was waived by the Kings last season and signed by New Orleans with the first pick of the second round, will be expected to step up as a starter.
He averaged 14.3 points and 8.3 rebounds in 22 games for the Pelicans last season.
Bouch is averaging 14.4 points and 4.9 rebounds this season for the Bulls, who are 15-5 and are in position to make the playoffs.
The Bulls are expected to make several moves this offseason, including signing free-agents Chris Paul and Joakim Noah.
