The summer is fast approaching, and the Chicago Bulls have a chance at bringing in some big names.
Carmelo Anthony is the big free-agent story this offseason, and while the Bulls certainly have a shot, Anthony’s future is still very much up in the air.
Chicago is primed to have a big offseason, and not just in free agency, either. They have two first-round picks in a draft loaded with talent, which could factor into what positions they choose to address during free agency.
However, the Bulls' decision on Carlos Boozer will play a big role.
If Chicago decides to amnesty the big man, it would save nearly $17 million in cap space, allowing it to sign just about anyone not named Carmelo or LeBron James (if he opts out and tests the market).
Boozer staying on the books for one more year would actually put the Bulls above the projected $62.1 million cap by over $1 million, not including contracts for incoming rookies. Given Boozer's production this year and his big cap hit, though, it's safe to assume he will be amnestied.
That being said, who are the five players the Bulls should target this offseason?
