Like I mentioned with Shannon Brown, Arron Afflalo is a fantastic long-term option for the Bulls. Maybe the best long-term option.
At only 25 years old, he possesses a very nice athletic repertoire. He's 6'5" and is very skilled at getting the ball to the hoop. I love Afflalo as a Bulls option.
One main reason, he fits ideally into Thibodeau's system. He's a very strong defender, like Keith Bogans, but he can score the ball.
He will also understand his role in the offense. It's clear that Derrick Rose is and always will play the lead role in the offense, and Afflalo doesn't have a problem playing second fiddle. He's just not the kind of player who demands offensive attention.
It's clear of Afflalo's fit into the Bulls system, making him the best on-paper option for the team. However, his contract may the dam to a deal going down. He's restricted, meaning the Bulls would have to offer a contract that can be matched.
He's got huge potential, making the price worth it if you ask me.
