The talks between Patrick Beverley and the Chicago Bulls have heated up and the two sides plan to meet within the next two weeks.

Patrick Beverley has been tweeting about the Chicago Bulls since the Los Angeles Clippers lost to the Golden State Warriors in the first round of the NBA Playoffs late April and he’s become a free agent.

Bulls fans and media have had fun tweeting Mr. 94 Feet, but not as much fan as Beverley has had talking openly about playing in his hometown of Chicago, and his latest tweet seems like he won’t be a Clipper next season.

Is this something that could happen this summer?

It all started on April 25 when former Bull and Chicago native Dwyane Wade tweeted about Beverley and the Clippers guard caught wind.

Wade has also been outspoken about Beverley’s All-Defensive Team snub this season in addition to swaying him in coming home to play for the Bulls.

Then earlier this month the Bulls signed former Houston Rockets assistant coach Roy Rogers, who coached Beverley for one season. The former Rockets and Clippers guard took notice and approved of the new hire.

Beverley played his first five seasons with the Rockets and last two with the Clippers. He was apart of the seven-player and one first round pick trade for Chris Paul in June of 2017.

Now that he is a free agent for the first time at 30-years-old, he has been talking openly with the Chicago media about playing with the Bulls, and what it would mean playing for the team he grew up idolizing.

“I am Chicago. I’m from Chicago. I bleed Chicago. I really think I can help the city. I think I can save the city,” Beverley said, per K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune.

“I inspire already. And I’d be a great inspiration just walking around the city of Chicago, knowing I’m from there, knowing that someone made it out and you can go and do the same.
