Are there any fans of acquiring Carmelo on the board? I would be for it if it were for Deng, a couple firsts, and Johnson, Taj, or Asik, but only one of those three. I'm not a fan of gutting the future of this team for a player who is more about the money than winning.
If the Bulls can't get Carmelo, who can they acquire at small forward to replace Deng? Do you think they should even try to replace Deng?
Who should the Bulls go after at shooting guard? Will O.J. Mayo be available in the near future?
I think we all would love Melo and the smartest move on his part would be to come to Chicago if he really wants a ring b/c of the pieces we already have in place. Do I think he'll come here, not really. Denver doesn't want Deng so if there is some kind of 3 team trade with someone else taking Deng it may work but you never know what's gonna happen I'm just not getting my hopes up. I really like our team right now and how well we have played without Boozer, but yea I guess will see what happens with this around the trade deadline, but I think he's gonna end up in New York. Hopefully I'm wrong. As for Mayo I really don't know what's going on with him.
D ROSE FOR MVP!
Although Melo would be nice, he's definitely an upgrade over Deng without a doubt, I think the bigger need is a very solid shooting guard. If we can get that, then Deng would be perfect for this team because we wouldn't have to rely on his scoring too much. I think Deng is a perfect 3rd or 4th option on offense, and he's been great on defense. I can't think of any available shooting guards out there, but if we could get one somewhow, this team will definitely be scary especially with the addition of Boozer. Go Bulls!!
Agree 100% with Boozer coming back Deng becomes a 3rd option which I also feel suits him better. Honestly before even considering a SG I'd like to see how this team plays with Boozer in the mix and if we need another piece we will know by the trade deadline. I really like our teams depth with Boozer coming back and really don't want to lose to much in a trade. I really don't care that Bogans starts cuz he's only getting like 15 minutes a game. I like how Thibs brings Brewer in for solid minutes off the bench.
