12. Vladimir Radmanovic, PF
Vladimir Radmanovic has not played in enough games (five games played) to warrant a higher place in the Bulls' power rankings. The stretch power forward could provide the Bulls perimeter shooting and floor spacing. The fact that he has not played much only magnifies his expected impact, which is little to none.
11. Nazr Mohammed, C
One player who many expected to be higher on the Bulls' power rankings is backup center Nazr Mohammed. Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau has played him sparingly (11 games averaging 6.8 MPG) thus far. There is little Mohammed can do while playing behind both Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson.
10. Marco Belinelli, SG
Marco Belinelli is supposed to make Bulls fans forget about Kyle Korver. Instead of matching Korver's output, Belinelli has struggled. Much of Belinelli's problems are due to inconsistent playing time (14.7 MPG). It is hard for him (Belinelli) to make positive waves when he does not know how much he will play from game to game.
9. Marquis Teague, PG
Who would have thought that Bulls rookie point guard Marquis Teague would be ranked this high? The former University of Kentucky Wildcat has shown promise. In his limited time on the basketball court, we have learned that Teague has good court vision for a rookie. He has averaged 1.2 APG in 5.7 MPG, which is 7.4 APG over 36 MPG. If only coach Thibodeau would play him more and develop him.
8. Kirk Hinrich, PG
Am I the only who is down on Kirk Hinrich? He has not played aggressively on the offensive end. In fact, Taj Gibson took one more shot (91 shot attempts) than Hinrich did in the month of November. Hinrich has to remember that he is the starting point guard and shoot the basketball. Until he does, Hinrich is a liability on offense.
7. Richard Hamilton, SG
According to the Chicago Tribune in July, the Bulls tried to find a trade partner for Richard Hamilton during the offseason, but they failed in their efforts. Hamilton has played exceptionally well this season by providing a much-needed scoring punch for the team. His shot has fallen, and he still looks good running off screens. Unfortunately, Hamilton has been exposed on defense against quicker shooting guards.
