The Chicago Bulls have gone through some injury problems to key roster members, so the Bulls need to look into free agency to strengthen their bench depth for an NBA Finals run.
Starting shooting guard Richard Hamilton has a nagging strained left groin that has kept him off the floor. Also, backup point guard C.J. Watson has a dislocated/sprained left elbow and has been out the last few games.
Another capable backup guard would be an excellent addition, as John Lucas III should not be counted on in the long-term.
Also, the Bulls lost Kurt Thomas to the Portland Trail Blazers in free agency and lack a true backup big man in case either Carlos Boozer or Joakim Noah get injured. Sorry Brian Scalabrine fans, but the Jolly Giant doesn't make the cut.
Having a decent backup who doesn't just occasionally play garbage minutes once every 10 games will provide great frontcourt insurance.
Here are six free agents who would shore up the Bulls' title chances.
