To add to this list of nimble brained Bulls fans commonly falling in love with a media story more than reality.

Melo didn't want to come here.
Wade or LeBron DID NOT want to come here, never did, and had their Miami plan since 08.
Howard doesn't want to come here at all.
Kobe didn't want to come here if Deng was traded.

Don't confuse player professionalism, with their desire to come here.

I was trying to think of a few teams that would possibly trade for Carlos Boozer and I came up with only two. The Nets and the Magic. The Nets have a billionaire owner who's stated he's willing to spend to build a winner. Boozer played well with DWill and they are attempting to keep Deron there. Boozer rebounds well and they need that next to Brook Lopez. The Magic are desperate to bring in more talent to put next to Dwight to try to hold onto him long term and are also known for bad moves. I would try to work a three team trade with Atlanta and one of these teams to try to land us Josh Smith. Atlanta wants a center so they could move Horford to his natural position at power forward. We could send them Asik. Throw in a few fillers and I think this could work for everyone involved. Sign Hinrich. Sign Antwan Jamison for the vets minimum.

That would be great too.

Noah/Asik
Taj/Jamison
Deng/Korver
Rip/Brewer
Rose/Hinrich/Lucas (I do not want to see Watson back)

The Bulls don't need Josh Smith though. Already have Luol Deng at the 3 and Taj at the 4. Jamison and Hinrich would be more than enough. I say Hinrich, Jamison, Mayo. Get rid of Korver.

Noah/Asik
Taj/Jamison
Deng/Brewer
Mayo/Rip
Rose/Hinrich/Lucas

Wait, so dump Boozer and sign a guy like Jamison?

It's not even a lateral move but I guess if the salary is cheaper...

Chill out why? If anything good came from Rose's injury this season it's that the Bulls were exposed. This team needs some serious help for Rose. He can't lead the team all by himself. No one on the Bulls besides Rose is untouchable for the right trade.

1. You're a moron.
2. We've (well I had) been saying that Rip wasn't enough help and Derrick needed more BEFORE the season.
3. He doesn't lead the team by himself. Deng & Noah are leaders as well.
4. You're a moron.
5. Exposed?

Josh Smith would be replacing Boozer in the starting lineup in the scenario that I suggested with Taj being his backup.

Antwan Jamison would be brought in as the 5th big man behind Noah, Asik, Gibson, and Smith as an experienced veteran big man who is a good rebounder and could space the floor with his outside shot. Jamison still played pretty well this past season and considering he's not getting any younger and hasn't won in a long time he wouldn't mind being on a contender contributing as a role player. Also while Luol is out in the beginning of the season he could play some SF against certain teams as well.

I like the idea of getting Smith. His defense, shot blocking, speed for his position, etc would be a great fit in this system.

Also, Jamison would be cool in a reserve role. I think he'd fit in well and could score in bunches off the bench.

Default Re: So... Wth are we going to do during offseason to make sure this won't happen again?

Let these guys go:
Mike James
John Lucas III
Brian Scalabrine

I would look into bringing in some of the following:

Kirk Hinrich, Randy Foye, Delonte West, OJ Mayo, Ray Allen, Landry Fields, Nick Young, JR Smith, Shannon Brown, Gerald Green, Terrence Williams, Danny Green and Antwan Jamison.

Extend the contracts of Gibson and Asik. Time for our owner to step up and spend.

Gives us a set roster of at least:

Rose - Watson
Hamilton - Korver
Deng - Butler
Boozer - Gibson
Noah - Asik

That's 10. Giving us 4-5 open spots. Our draft pick will take one of those spots. I'd try to trade Ronnie Brewer for a shooter or an extra big.

Sign Kirk Hinrich, Danny Green and Antwan Jamison.

Giving you a lineup of:

Kirk - Watson
Hamilton - Green
Korver - Butler
Boozer - Gibson - Jamison
Noah - Asik until Rose and Deng return. Still a playoff team.

Jamison is fully capable of starting at the SF spot over Korver...

At his age idk if he's a good option for guarding Lebron Melo and the like but I guess he would be better than Korver in that aspect.
