Chicago Bulls, just missing two things.
Two weeks left until the NBA's trade deadline. This is were teams really find out if GM's are trying to make a deal, right before the buzzer. The next two weeks could deside the Bulls future, heck, anyones! If the Bulls are intented on clearing some space for the GOD-2010 Free Agent market, they may need to make a move. The bulls feel like they can make a move, might be risky, but could the rewards could be enormous.
Problem #1, Shooting Guard & Power Forward
Basically, the Bulls need to fit-in LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, or Joe Johnson into the shooting guard spot. And maybe adding: Chris Bosh, Carlos Boozer, or David Lee with the Knicks. If they can get Two players, they would join Derrick Rose, Luol Deng, and Joakim Noah in a title contending lineup. James, or Wade joing the Bulls might be a long shot, but it Kope can lead the Lakers to where they are now, why can't #23 pick-up where the old #23 left of?
Think this, The bulls are going to ask Johnson and Bosh to ask themselfs if they're going to win an NBA title where they are now. The answer is no. Then teaming up to join the country's latgest market is very appealing.
Problem #2, Making room for the furture
What needs to happen for the BUlls is to clear come cap room. Trading Kirk Hinrich and John Salmons, will avoid expiring contracts. It will be hard trading Krik thou. Because he still has two years left and $17 million due. Salmons can opt out, or play another season dueing 8.5 million, he'll opt out tho.
Trading both players will free up around $30 million, even that probably won''t be enough to offer two lager salary contracts. But the bulls hope the marketing dollars and title contention will be persuasive.
Bulls making a deal
The bulls are doing what they can to get money, and make a deal. Then cash-in for Free Agents. Whatever the combination is, the Bulls have a specific game plan for the next two-three weeks, and it's to go ALL-IN, on Free Agents. Bulls fans better hope MR. Paxson (GM) doesn't lose his cell phone!!
