Chicago Bulls 2011-2012 Thread

PG is a need and the Bulls FO couldn't believe he was still there. I like the pick personally. We still need a SG.

I definitely like the pick, especially since he'll be able to run the offense in a similar style as Rose. This probably signals the end of Watson/Lucas as the Bulls are most likely still going to pursue a veteran PG. Heard they're pursuing Hinrich which I wouldn't have a problem with. The need for another SG should be addressed this offseason. Rip was starting to look good, but who knows how long he can stay healthy. Interested in the health of Brandon Roy, maybe he can make a Grant Hill type of comeback. I'm excited to see the development of Butler next season, especially with the expected departure of Brewer. Can't wait to see what other moves we make, just gotta hold down the fort til Deng and Rose come back at full strength.

It looks like two more years of a team just short of having enough to win it all. With Rose out they should have blown it up but it looks like the playoffs each year is enough for ownership.
Rose will come in late, knock the rust off just in time to peak in the playoffs
Thibs doesn't expect Deng to get surgery after the Olympics.
FML. why do all my beloved teams sit on their ass and watch as other teams get better. then to top it off we lose a better big man to them rockets.

If ownership was willing to pay a large luxury tax for the next few years they could easily have Joe Johnson for the unguaranteed contracts of Korver, Brewer, Watson, and then another 5 million through a sign and trade of a free agent or Rip Hamilton. They are too concerned with making money to do this but it would give the Bulls a roster that could actually compete since Rose wouldn't be the only threat on offense.

I wouldn't be thrilled with a deal like that since the team would be forced to sit on their hands for the next 2-5 years but they've already loaded up on overpaid players, why not add one more if it makes you the most complete team in the league?

Really sucks. Hope they do something to get better.

I actually think the signing of Hinrich is a great one. Nice veteran presence to hold it down while Teague learns and Rose recovers. Also plays great defense and also seems to give Wade a hard time. He can also slide over to the 2 once Rose gets back. Since he'd be sigining a pretty favorable deal, it seems more likely that we'll match the Rockets offer to Asik. Hoping that we can somehow land Courtney Lee as I think he'd be a perfect fit for this team. I'm definitely interested to see how the rest of this offseason unfolds, especially with the expected departure of Watson/Brewer/Korver. I'm hoping we can somehow hold onto Korver as the other two are pretty expendable. Brewer's role can be played by Butler and Hinrich's signing and the arrival of Teague pretty much says goodbye to Watson. I just don't see any other pure shooters on this team besides Korver. We'll see what else this front office has in store, go Bulls!
Come on Bulls let's pull off a trade for Iggy from the 76ers!
Hotsauce Kyle Korver got traded away
I guess we get a new hotsauce: Vladimir Radmonovic
