2011 NBA Free Agents: 5 Restricted Free Agents the Chicago Bulls May Consider

The NBA lockout is finally over, which means we can finally start looking forward to the start of the regular season.

With free agency set for December 9th and the season set to start just two weeks later, it will be a fast and furious free-agency period.

The Chicago Bulls don't have to worry about bringing any of their own players back. They have no restricted free agents and only three unrestricted free agents: Kurt Thomas, Rasual Butler and Brian Scalabrine, and none are expected to be re-signed.

With the MVP and the Coach of the Year, the team who had the best record in the league doesn't have a lot of holes. However, that doesn't mean they can't improve.

The one spot Gar Forman is expected to try and improve is the starting shooting guard spot which was occupied by Keith Bogans last season.

Here are some restricted free agents that may interest the Bulls and help them get past the Heat. Under the new CBA, teams will have three days to decide if they will match the offer given (under the old CBA, the team had seven days to match).

If you want to see the unrestricted guys that might interest the Bulls, just look here.

One player not on this list is Wilson Chandler of the Denver Nuggets. He, along with teammate JR Smith, signed in China and can't return to the NBA until March.
