The diminutive scoring guard was both brilliant and ghastly in the Bulls postseason run, more or less a microcosm of his roller-coaster eight-year career.
Robinson's ability to create shots for himself (13.1 points per game) and for his teammates (4.4 assists) was a needed addition to this year's Bulls. But once Rose returns to the fold, Chicago may have all of the offensive creativity it needs.
Here's what we know at this point: Robinson's set himself up for a massive raise from the $850,000 he collected this season. Of course, that may not bode well for his future with the franchise, via Johnson :
Marco Belinelli was added to the equation to help replace the perimeter shooting lost when Kyle Korver and C.J. Watson left the Windy City last summer, but he struggled to shoot with any consistency (39.5 percent from the field, 35.7 from three).
He still found ways to help this club. He gave Thibodeau another playmaker on the floor and poured in the sixth-most points on the team (9.6). He might be worth keeping around, particularly on a low-cost deal.
Nazr Mohammed has the size to fill the lane (6'10", 221 lbs) but brought next to nothing on the offensive end (2.6 points, 36.7 field-goal percentage). He's 35 years old and may have a hard time finding a job.
Vladimir Radmanovic appeared in only 25 games during the regular season, and his entire postseason performance consisted of 10 minutes of mop-up duty at the end of Chicago's 37-point drubbing in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.
He's played for four different teams in the last four seasons and will likely need to find a fifth to prolong his 12-year career.
At one point in time, Daequan Cook was a premier perimeter shooter. A sharp enough marksman to take home the 2009 three-point contest championship in fact, via InsideHoops.com.
He's since been identified as a one-trick pony, and had trouble even making the most of that solo trait in limited action with Chicago (24.6 three-point percentage in 33 games with the club). The six-year pro has been traded four times and waived once in his career, so another change of address shouldn't faze him.
Potential Free Agent
Richard Hamilton's contract for 2013-14 is only partially guaranteed, and there's no indication that Chicago plans to hold on to the 14-year veteran.
He disappeared from Thibodeau's playoff rotation before suddenly being granted major minutes in the final two games of Chicago's campaign. The 26 points and five assists he tallied in those contests showed he may have something left in the tank, but he couldn't hide the fact that he's a defensive nightmare playing for a team that would never allow him on the floor under different circumstances.
