Other names I'd be fine with are Dellavedova, Mudiay, Knight, or Reggie Jackson. Plus there are probably trades available.


Maybe Reggie Jackson yeah, 10 ppg, 4 apg last season

Honestly, I don't really care for FA this off-season. We don't have any pressing needs. That's why I was fine with the Temple pickup - he's a quality vet.

I'm been cynical of the White/PG situation, but let's run him out there, see how he goes with PG reps and next to Lavine. Sato backing up both back-court spots, Valentine/Temple the 2/3.

At the 3, you have Otto, Hutch and filled out with Val/Temple if needed. Some who are more optimistic on PWill's wing prospects may also slot him in for some minutes there.

At the 4, Lauri, Thad and PWill.

At the 5, WCJ, Gafford, Kornet, and both Lauri and PWill are capable of playing mins there - stacked.

Let's just see how all that plays out. No point bringing in an extra PG.. guys like Teague are just redundant.

If there's a flier upside guy to take on, like a Jontay Porter or Konchar, I'm all for it, but I wouldn't be signing someone with any expectations to contribute to the rotation.

AK’s #1 Priority is to find out what we have.

The young guys need to play almost all the mins. We sink or swim with them.

Once we know what we got we make moves.

I feel like AK is probably a fan, and I think he'd bring some energy and hustle on the wing that we currently lack.

Its not like Bulls have roster spots left too.

Also, the trade deadline is about 3 months from now. Even though it feels a little frustrating that they couldn’t find anything else to improve the team right now, they’ll be in a better position to reshape the roster then

That clearly seems to be the plan.

I think we will be competitive and be in that play in tourney for the 7th or 8th seed.

We pretty much have to trade someone to add a a piece.

Thad - come on down.

With us drafting Patrick Williams, who most think is really a 4, I think Lauri better show real improvement before the deadline. If not, I could imagine him on the move. I think Phoenix would love Lauri and would have various assets to offer the Bulls. That's just one example of what I imagine could be several interested teams.

Not sure if this is the place for this. But is it true that we could have upwards of 69M in cap space next year?

If so, I think the play this season is to work on developing WCJ, Coby and Williams. Let Zach do Zach and see if we can get to the playoffs by any means necessary so as to attract big time free agents.

Agreed. What do you think it would take to get him?

OKC has no use for him. I think he will get a buy out and go ring chasing

Would OKC take either Sato or Felicio + a future 2nd rd pick instead of buying him out?

Maybe a 2nd. I think it’s really about where Hill wants to go. He’s a ring chasing vet. Think Presti will concede.

George Hill is done he’s really not the same anymore. Sato is better.

He's definitely not. He led the league in 3pt % last year.

OKC can probably flip him for an asset to a contender.

I like the idea of Bulls being ride or die with the you g guys. Start and play Coby 30mpg. Give PW burn. Force us to win with them. Thad and Sato shouldn’t be winning us games.

Jontay to the Grizz for 6 million/3 years total.

Absolute failure by the a bulls in FA. Laziness to not upgrade at least Felicio's roster spot.

Even with our little FA money, a solid postseason was very attainable. They messed it up.
