I don't know that any team in the league has been as poorly run as the Bulls have over the past 12 seasons. We're talking two seasons over .500 during that span.
No front office is worse in the league when it comes to evaluating talent. Go dig up all of the post-Michael Jordan lottery picks this franchise has squandered. You'll get sick.
I apologize for not having more faith in a Jerry Reinsdorf, Gar Forman and Vinny Del Negro-led organization. My gut tells me the Bulls front office is excitedly thinking right now, "gee golly, we can't wait to sign Dwyane Wade in the summer." Meanwhile, the rest of the world already knows it won't happen.
With all this said, the Bulls have the money (nearly $20 million under the cap), the trade chips (six expiring contracts, including Brad Miller's $12.3 million tag and the uber-athletic Tyrus Thomas), and desire/need to land a scoring big man like Stoudemire.
Would a Miller and Thomas offer be enough to land him? No. The only way the Suns work out a deal with the Bulls is if they can shed Jason Richardson (one year, $14.4 million) and/or Leandro Barbosa (two years, $14.7 million), or receive a first rounder in the process.
I don't see it, but given this organization's tendency to screw up, I'm not ignoring the possibility of a trade between these two clubs.
Keep the Bulls on your list.
