Cost-Effective Moves the Chicago Bulls Could Make in Free Agency

With just over $73 million guaranteed going into the 2013-14 season, the Chicago Bulls don't have a lot of money to spend during free agency.

The Bulls are not only over the cap, but they're also above the tax threshold, leaving them with limited options this summer. They'll have a taxpayer mid-level exception (MLE) worth just under $3.2 million, while the rest of the free-agent signings will likely come at the veteran's minimum.

There are a few voids left to fill on the roster. The Bulls need a backup center, which could be addressed during the draft. Jimmy Butler will most likely remain a starter, leaving the backup 2-guard and small forward roles empty.

The Bulls have done a good job building a second unit the past few years, and even though they're strapped for cash, fans should expect no less this year.

Each free-agent suggestion will be for either the Bulls' MLE or a minimum salary.
