Default Bulls will have to spend some money this offseason on a SG.

Because this upcoming draft is garbage.

Jason Richardson
Vince Carter
Marcus Thornton
etc.

Can someone post the 2011 free agent list again? There was a big list of all the upcoming free agents. Tons of people available too.

They don't have any MLE to offer? Can they trade those picks for trade exemptions?

No one knows if there is going to be a MLE in the new CBA.

I know it's only been two games after the all-star break but Bogans hasn't played well.


He better not be going backwards now and playing like he did in the beginning of the year.

They're UNDER the cap. We basically traded JJ for nothing.

We traded JJ to add another pick and especially to be in a possition to offer the most money to any nice bought out player.

I don't think its gonna happen. I really don't have alot of faith that reinsdorf will allow the gms to go over the cap for anything over resigning rose. Hopefullay, we draft well.

My question was in response to DRwax statement that the bulls don't have money to offer. So in essense, they have cap room to offer a FA?

We'll have to wait and see how the new CBA is going to look. I really don't see it going through such a drastic change and don't see it being as bad as some predictions are trying to make it seem. Either way there's no way of us knowing so we'll have to be patient in this regard.

The Bulls have positioned themselves nicely though. They have 3 out of 5 startes locked up for a significant period of time. Our main bench players are pretty much locked up. We just have to extend Rose (which we will most definately do) and fill out the hole at shooting guard.

Whether it be through free agency or the draft our focus will be on upgrading the two spot and with that being the focus im sure the front office will be able to pull it off some how.

Really, just anyone who can ease some offensive pressure from Rose. We don't need a guy who is outstanding on defense because we are doing fine with Bogans who is complete garbage starting now.

Thornton can create some shots and get the offense flowing which is a huge plus to me. He is also a great 3 point shooter.

Richardson will ask for too much. Vince sucks now.

Default Re: Bulls will have to spend some money this offseason on a SG.

I wonder if if there is a SG out there that is not on our radar right now that will surprise us all this summer? I am thinking that perhaps there is someone that will ask to be traded to the Bulls, or someone that will sign cheaper than expected to be part of this core group that is having so much success?

I don't think that is too much to "ask" for as a fan.
