I'd rather give minutes to a project player. If they pan out, keep them, if they don't, run plays to pad stats, up value, and trade them away. Select a player wisely.
Right now, NOBODY is on the table that is enticing. No use wasting money on band-aids that don't stick.
You can only give minutes to a project player if they have a high upside...which player available has a high enough upside where it would make sense to give them minutes over a proven veteran such as Redd or Howard? On a minimum contract, it makes more sense to see if you can catch lightning in a bottle with either of those two guys than hoping a young nobody can figure something out.
With ronnie and korver out, why didn't we try to get shannon brown, he can shoot the 3, play solid defense and I think he would thrive in thibs system and most importantly he's cheap at 7 mil / 2 years. I don't get it.
Human beings aren't cell phone apps, where you can just download the ones yo want. It has to be mutual, they have to want to come here too. Lee doesn't want to come here.
No need to tell me, I understand completely. I wish some of our fellow Bulls family would realize, that with a injured Rose who is likely out for the season, Chicago is just not really looking attractive to anyone. People getting mad we're not seeing results, but its not like we have anything to GET huge results.
We are just gonna have to be patient, plan and simple. If/When we make our moves, it will be the season after next when both Deng AND Boozer's contracts expire. Until then, time to weather the storm and help grow Butler and Teague.
If anyone is looking for anything positive, you should really pay attention to Jimmy. Many expected him to improve, but his improvement is beyond many's expectations right now. He is just straight up BALLIN.
Malcolm Thomas has looked very good too.

The bulls should try to sign E'Twaun Moore as soon as he is waived by Houston. Hopefully they will waive him since they have about 23 players on their roster. He looked good scoring 25 points against the bulls. He is the athletic SG we could use.
