I think the best move is going to be getting Mirotic here ASAP, amnestying Boozer, and trading Deng for a lottery pick. Most of the free agents listed are either over the hill or just mediocre. I would even consider trading the Bobcats pick for a more recent lottery pick. The Bulls need to get better sooner rather than later. Otherwise, you're talking basketball hell until beyond 2016, when that Bobcats pick and Mirotic would be blossoming.
One hundred percent agreed. My dream scenario is to add Oladipo (need to surrender the Charlotte pick, other firsts, for a mid-lotto pick this year) and Mirotic while resigning Deng on the cheap in 2014.

We need to infuse this core with youth, athleticism and talent. "Starting over" with a new core...it would be nice if the pieces were there. They are not.
