3 years/15 million. Honestly would of been happier with a 2 year deal, but I'm not complaining since we just got a top 20 SG without having to trade anyone. Successful offseason, we addressed our biggest need with a guy who is a solid offensive player and fits our team perfectly.

Rose/Watson
RIP/Brewer
Deng/Korver
Boozer/Taj/Scal
Noah/Asik

Not sure what they'll do with Bogans now. And we still need another big since we lost Big Sexy. Przybilla is at the top of my list to take his role.

I like cheering for a good TEAM.

Rose may be the best on the squad, but it's all aboutt he team for me and mostly all Bulls fans.

Does the Bulls still have that "no headband rule"?

Pretty solid lineup

They should still go for Crawford or a scoring PG off the bench. Hmmm Arenas anybody?

That was a Scott Skiles rule, not a Thibs rule.

I'm not talking about liking a team, but trying to handicap which team has the best chance. The Bulls were exposed throughout the playoffs and not just the ECF. It was clear that if you make Rose work you'll have success against the Bulls. Hamilton will help a bit with that, but the guy they really need to step up big is Boozer. The problem with that is that Chris Bosh, Amare Stoudemire and a moderately healthy KG (probably not happening) are better.

In the West it's much more of a crapshoot. OKC looks promising, but they have chemistry and experience questions. Memphis looks dangerous, but they were just the 8th seed last year. Making the jump from #8 to the Finals seems unlikely. Dallas and the Lakers look much weaker at the moment or at the very least have fallen back in the pack a little bit.

The Clippers will have their issues, but they've got great/good players at four of the five positions. Plus, the Chris Paul & Blake Griffin combo might be special.

If I had to bet on which team was more likely to make the Finals, I guess I'd pick the Bulls. Although oddly it might surprise me less if the Clippers ended up coming out of the West.

To be fair to Boozer, he was playing with an injury and his legs weren't fully healed after that Roy Hibbert or hasheen thibeet (i forget which one) injury.

MEM is very good. So is OKC. I see them in the WCF myself.

I think it'll be fun to watch.

As a Bulls fan, I like that you picked my team, but I'm holding off until I see how they play and gel together.

I like this signing for the Bulls. Gives them another scorer which they desperately needed. And Rip has been known to frustrate Wade in the past.

3 years sucks but I guess if you didnt give him 3 he would have gone elsewhere and you'd be stuck with Bogans who DOESNT belong in the NBA. Atleast starting.
