Hallelujah, the NBA is back.
It took longer than we hoped, but thank God there will be a season this year. That being said, there still is a lot of sorting out to do. Where will free agents and unrestricted free agents land? What players will be let go by the new amnesty clause? Only time will tell.
One thing I know for sure is that the Chicago Bulls will be looking to add a shooting guard.
The Bulls have to decide whether or not to exercise Keith Bogans' $1.73 million team option or let him test the free-agent market. Even if they do retain Bogans, the Bulls will still want to add another shooting guard who can provide significant offense for the team.
The Bulls ranked 20th last season in points per game and adding another scorer is just what they need to put the team over the top.
Right now the Bulls are over the salary cap, but because they are under the tax threshold the team can still offer the maximum mid-level exception of $5 million.
The following are five shooting guards the team must pursue.
