Good move..gibson is much better defensively and has so much upside

whereas boozer looks to be on the decline

They should had done this before, and resigned Asik. Noah + Asik + Gibson = best defensive and rebounding frontcourt on the league.

So which teams are willing to take Boozer? It would have to be a team under the salary cap during the first round of bids, right?

Agreed on the Asik move.

makes sense. once boozer started to decline offensively (especially in the half court set), it was an easy decision. taj is better as long as he stays healthy. still think they should have kept asik but that poison pill really hurt them. asik + gibson was one helluva rebounding/defensive frontcourt

Meh. I hate my team's franchise front office.

So many dumb moves. From 1999 - it's been one mistake after another. We luck into D. Rose, and then the kid has a career altering knee injury.

Post MJ curse? IDK. We never should've signed Boozer for that money from the get go. Ugh, I hate this team apart from Rose and Gibson.

bout time. If the Bulls had another legit big instead of Boozer the last 2 years, they would've gotten further in the playoffs.

Dude, we drafted Ty Thomas over Lamarcus Aldridge AND Brandon Roy.
