If you ask the analysts and "experts" that cover the NBA every night, they will say that the Chicago Bulls are a team that are very good, but are not an elite team. Despite being currently 2.5 games back of the Celtics from being the top seed in the Eastern Conference, the Bulls are still considered a long shot to make the Eastern Finals.
With Joakim Noah returning in coming weeks and the team continually getting more and more comfortable with one another, this should be a team that keeps improving. But, the shooting guard position is still a spot of concern with Keith Bogans and C.J Watson not instilling confidence in some.
So I will look at some players that could be on the market before the deadline, whom the Bulls GM Gar Forman should inquire about and make some phone calls. People who watch this team every game know the truth, and that is that they are really not that far away.
