Not all of the summer signings have settled in yet.
The scary thing about the Bulls is they are not yet hitting on all cylinders.
As previously stated, Luol Deng has not yet totally fit into the offense, even though he is having a career year and is still trying to play off the two superstars. Chicago basically took half Utah’s team in the summer and not all of the new acquisitions have clicked with the Bulls as well as Boozer assimilated.
Kyle Korver, who led the league in three-point field goal percentage last year at 54 percent is shooting only 40 percent this year as he is still settling in. Shooting slumps like this usually occur early in the year. If he gets back into form, he could be the type of role player that championship-caliber teams desire.
Ronnie Brewer has not settled in yet as he is averaging 6ppg even though he averaged 10ppg and 14ppg in the last two seasons. This is mainly because his minutes are down, but the Bulls are looking for a new starter at shooting guard, and he could be the man for the job, only improving the teams depth. Combine this with the fact that Taj Gibson is going through a sophomore slump (8rpg down to 6rpg, 49% FG down to 44%FG), and it looks like the Bulls have nowhere to go but up.
