Chicago Bulls Rumors: Nick Young Would Solve Bulls' SG Woes
Young, 26, provides speed and length (6'7") at the two-guard position. In 2010-11, Young started 40 games for the Wizards and averaged 17.4 points a night on 44.1 percent shooting.
The Bulls would want a shooting guard who could spread the floor with a solid three-point shot. Young is a career 38.3 percent shooter, which is higher than current Bull Keith Bogans' 35.5 percent career average.
Pairing Derrick Rose with Young in the Bulls backcourt would be really fun to watch. Young is a deadly catch-and-shoot player who hit 45.4 percent of his long twos last year, many of which were contested.
Rose needs a solid shooter as Bogans, Ronnie Brewer and "acclaimed" sharpshooter Kyle Korver (38.8 percent in the postseason) failed to spread the floor, allowing defenses to key in on Rose.
For the Bulls to make this happen, they need to be willing use the amnesty clause on someone like Korver ($10 million over two years) to free up cap space. If they don't want to amnesty Korver, then the Bulls might have to sign-and-trade with the Wizards.
Would Nick Young solve the Bulls shooting guard woes?
A possible trade could be either rookie forward Jimmy Butler or center Omer Asik along with a first-round pick for Young.
Young would be the guard to bring the Bulls to an NBA championship.
Youth is also on Young's side, as Carter is 34 and the Orlando Magic's Jason Richardson is 30. This would allow Young to develop and gel alongside Rose for years to come.
