The NBA lockout is not over yet, but one thing seems to be a foregone conclusion. There will be amnesty, and the Bulls might be the biggest beneficiary of that aspect of the agreement, even though they don't need to waive anyone.
The Bulls aren't in need of a great player to put them over the top, merely a good one. Essentially, as I've repeated on numerous occasions, they need a shooting guard who can shoot and guard. They have one who can shoot, Kyle Korver, and two who can guard, Keith Bogans and Ronnie Brewer, but none who can shoot and guard.
The potential amnesty buyouts, though, lead the possibility open of several players who could fit that bill and be enough to put the Bulls over the top. The best part is, that with a fat wad of cash in their wallets, the players in question might be looking to land a ring more than a paycheck, so they could find the Bulls an attractive option, and they could come cheap.
Here are some names that are floated as potential amnesty buyouts, and the order that they would fall in in potential help to the Bulls.
