If not Melo, then who?
If the Bulls don't attempt to trade for him by the deadline or they don't get a deal done during the offseason, who should the Bulls backup plan be? They really need another superstar. IMO, Melo would still be the best playing alongside Rose, Noah, Butler, Taj, Mirotic. But if that doesn't happen then who should the Bulls go after?
If they keep the team as is, I think their biggest need would be a 2 or 3 that can score. They desperately need someone like a Carmelo Anthony who they can turn to to score 20+ PPG on a regular basis.
