(CBS) Could the Bulls be moving away from the Berto Center?

According to a report, the team is open to it. A report from NBA.com indicates the Bulls are entertaining the thought of moving their practice facility from Deerfield to a location near the United Center.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has encouraged Bulls Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf to consider relocating the team’s practice facility to a downtown Chicago location.

“While the Bulls are happy at the Berto Center, after talking to the Mayor, we agreed to give strong consideration to the idea of relocating our practice facility to downtown Chicago,” said Michael Reinsdorf, the team’s President and Chief Operating Officer. “At this point, nothing is imminent, but nothing is out of the question either. Right now, we are taking the appropriate time and measures to fully explore the idea.”

Since opening in September 1992, the Sheri L. Berto Center has hosted the majority of team practices, game day shootarounds and summer workouts. The building is also the home the Bulls’ coaching and basketball operations staff offices
