Default What do we do with Watson, Korver and Brewer?

The three have team options.

Korver at 5 million. Brewer at 4.3 million and Watson at 3.2 million.
That's 12.5 million we could save by not bringing them back.

Do we think the three of them are worth that much money?
The three of them are all good players in their own right, but they are all specialists and have limited games.
Wouldn't we much rather have one complete player making about 6-7 million a year and then two guys on the league minimum opposed to these current three?

It'll certainly be interesting to see what the Bulls do especially with Asik and Gibson needing to be extended as well.

Default Re: What do we do with Watson, Korver and Brewer?

I've thought of some possible trades involving these players if we do decide to pick up their options.

Watson, Korver and Brewer to Portland for

Wesley Matthews, Elliot Williams and Nolan Smith.

or

Watson, Korver and Brewer to Houston for

Kevin Martin and Chase Budinger.

What do you guys think?

Bring back Korver and Brewer unless they can get someone like OJ Mayo. Say goodbye to CJ Watson. Hopefully at the very least Hinrich will be back starting with Lucas off the bench.

This team is not tanking and who the **** really wants to tank a season to try and get a draft pick? GTFO with that shit. If the Bulls are bad then they're bad on their own. I don't want to see a team coached by Thibs with Noah, Deng, Taj, Boozer, Rip and possibly Hinrich back tank an entire season.

Default Re: What do we do with Watson, Korver and Brewer?

I want Watson back. People dogging on him, after suffering a shoulder, elbow, ankle, knee, and had to get a minor foot surgery in a single freak season baffles me. JL3 has got to go. Leave Watson on the bench, upgrade at the point.

Korver has made a lot of improvements. Even when he doesn't make shots, he provides a lot in other areas. You wont get a 3pt specialist like him, and comparing his stats to other 3pt specialists who STRICTLY do nothing but shoot 3s, is useless.

Brewer has been up and down since becoming a Bull. I love the guy's defensive energy and ability to cover at the 3, but he isn't a very good starting 3, and he isn't good unless he is comfortable. Something most teams wont allow him to get. Of these 3, I would let go of Brewer first.

Default Re: What do we do with Watson, Korver and Brewer?

Watson was just beyond terrible in the final game of the Sixers/Bulls. I really don't want to see him back and I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels the same way. Hinrich with Lucas off the bench would be way better. At least Lucas wouldn't have passed the ball to Omer Asik in that play.

Post Re: What do we do with Watson, Korver and Brewer?

Right now the Bulls are on the books for approximately $75 million in 2012/13 if you include these three, but doesnít take Omerís extension into account. Luxury tax threshold will be $70.3 million, and I doubt Reinsdorf will approve going over this coming year. I think Brewer has the biggest chance to be gone, since Butler can easily fill his place for much less. Dumping Brewer gets us to $70.7 million, but that's only with 10 guys, two of which (Rose and Deng) will be out for extended periods of time.

So we need to add at least 4 guys Ė veteran minimum is about $1 million, so getting to $66 million (pre-Omer) is the goal. Iíd love to cut both Korver and Watson and re-sign them to cheaper contracts, but I donít know if they will go for that, especially if we wonít be in contention for a title next year.

Iíve thought for a while now that the Bulls need to trade/amnesty either Boozer or Noah to stay under the tax next season. Nobody really wants to get rid of Korver or Watson (esp. with Rose and Deng out). Iím not sure why the Bulls wonít amnesty Boozer, but thatís not for me to figure out. Getting Boozer/Noahís contract off the books will allow us to retain our current players (except Brewer), give Omer an extension, and have some room to sign vets to fill out the roster.

Default Re: What do we do with Watson, Korver and Brewer?

Watson & Brewer are going to be waived and not re-signed.

Korver will either be waived and re-signed once he clears waivers for less, or the team will pick up his option.

Brewer and Watson have reached their expiration date. But of the two, I'd keep Brewer, but sign him for less money.

Default Re: What do we do with Watson, Korver and Brewer?

Watson can't be waived without proving mutual consent because he will still be considered injured, and the Bulls will be liable for him until he recovers.

Much like so many fans were 100% sure about Boozer getting amnestied, I think the same mistake is being projected onto Watson.
