The Chicago Bulls are already one of the top teams in the NBA's Eastern Conference. They currently sit in the 3 seed if the season were to end today and they have not even had their entire starting line-up together for more than a few games with Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah and Carlos Boozer all missing time this season. The Bulls are one of the top defensive teams in the NBA and should only get better as the season wears on and they continue to get healthy.
The only flaw in their roster right now is at shooting guard where they start Keith Bogans and bring in Ronnie Brewer off the bench for most of the minutes. They could use a shooter to stretch the floor while also keeping up their defensive prowess. There are a few players here that will only help on the offensive end, but each one of them really brings something that the Bulls lack, a scoring threat at the two guard position.
If they can bring in one of these players it would be hard not to consider them the favorites to win the East this season.
