Default The additions of Belinelli and Hinrich to Bulls backcourt

CSN Chicago:

Belinelli is something of an unknown commodity since he came over from Italy and played his first five NBA seasons with bad teams. But the 26-year-old shooting guard is a career 39 percent shooter from 3-point range, and he's a more athletic player than the departed Kyle Korver. Belinelli admits he's not a great defensive player, but if anyone can help him, it's Tom Thibodeau.

Hinrich is definitely an upgrade over C.J. Watson when he moves in to a reserve role, and we hear Captain Kirk is working out like a madman this summer, dropping weight and sharpening his skills for a second tour of duty with the Bulls. Hinrich has never been a high-percentage shooter, but his ability to play both guard spots should give Thibodeau a lot more versatility late in close games. And no one will question Hinrich’s work ethic and intensity on the defensive end.

The bench mob lives on. Butler will break out. Taj will take that next step this year. Hinrich as the article stated is better than C.J Watson. And Bellinelli gives us two options at the 2 guard.

Teague is a wildcard he played like garbage in summer league but hopefully he gets better as the season goes along and is able to make a contribution
