Should the Bulls bother pushing the price on Redick if the Magic match their offer?
If the Bulls get Redick, they'll have roughly $6 million in cap space left to land either another big-man or a back-up point guard. (All maybe at the third-year veteran minimum.)
Yet, the Bulls should make sure that whoever they get is a prime defender, especially with the the three-headed monster from South Beach threatening the conference.
As of now, they're targeting Ronnie Brewer, Keith Bogans or Roger Mason Jr. (say who?)
If the Magic do match the Bulls' offer, the Bulls will still have $14 million to work with. Should they save the money for next season and hope to land someone like Carmelo Anthony?
Hopefully not. They shouldn't put off for the next free agent season. It's all now.
The Bulls were already playoff contenders with Rose, Noah, Gibson and Deng.
By adding Boozer and Korver, the Bulls have gotten even better.
Redick, a very decent overall player, would solidify the team. He might not be Wade or LeBron, but he complements the Bulls' roster very well.
Still, he should have more of a mid-level price tag.
But it's just a few extra (million) bucks, and who else could the Bulls possibly get with that money?
