Chicago Bulls: What Would Adding Joel Pryzbilla Mean for This Season?
The Bulls would seem to be in the lead because they can offer more money than the Heat and are closer to his Wisconsin home. Miami can only offer a prorated amount of the veteran minimum while the Bulls can offer their bi-annual exception, which is worth $1.9 million.
Przybilla, 32, has spent 11 injury-plagued years in the NBA. He has only played in more than 50 games five times and only played in all 82 games once. He has battled numerous knee injuries and only played in 36 games last season for the Bobcats and Blazers.
He will fill the hole left by Kurt Thomas and slide Brian Scalabrine back down on the bench. Honestly, isn't it weird seeing Scalabrine seeing action in the first half of games?
Przybilla isn't going to pass up Omer Asik of Taj Gibson on the depth chart. He would provide good depth because the way things are going, they have to assume that either Carlos Boozer or Joakim Noah will be missing some time this season.
Adding Pryzbillia could also be insurance if the Bulls were to trade any of their other big man in a deal for Dwight Howard.
This isn't actually the first time the Bulls have been interested in signing Przybilla. They first looked at him during the summer of 2006 but they signed Ben Wallace instead and Przybilla ended up going to Portland.
Additionally, the Bulls would not have to make any move to sign Przybilla while the Heat would have to waive someone since they are at the roster maximum of 15.
Another thing to note is if the Bulls did sign him for the full bi-annual exception, it would put them over the luxury tax line which some people think owner Jerry Reinsdorf would have trouble paying.
Personally, I'd like to see them add another defensive wing player because they have been getting burnt without Luol Deng.
