I would love him he seems to like to help the you g players adjust to the game too. Me thinks he is looking for a shot at a ring this year though.


If he doesn't want to play anymore, I wouldn't mind giving him a place on the bench as an assistant coach.
Why support #FireGar??

Melo apparently transcends the role available.
If teams are serious about trying to compete he would be on another persons roster.

So it’s looking like he has been blackballed. Getting the AI treatment, his last video was impressive.
Even though AI gets the blackballed narrative sometimes, he got a 2nd chance and had some down years as a rotational player.

Basketball he can garner enough hype to get somebody to believe in him, if it was the nfl, after the caepernick thing, it would be a done deal, and hard to say being ready would give him another chance.

Melos problem imo was he had a visible loss of skill. To counter this I think he would have to essentialize his game and excel at the few most necessary skills. Also utilize his physical strengths like many players before him finally turn into forwards or centers as they decline.

His last video with nets was impressive. Of course I think he could help the bulls. It’s subjective cons that are keeping him from the roster not his objective ability.

It's not that he isn't more talented than a lot of the role players around, he just hasn't shown the ability to play that specific role. If anything, that segement with Skip probably made Melo's case worse, because he kept harping on about having not learned how to play a smaller role, needed to be guided etc. Who has time for that for a role player? It's easier for teams to just sign the role player, who knows how to play a role, accepts it and not need extra attention to do so.
Why so serious?

I'd like to see the Bulls sign Nik Stauskas. He'd be a nice floor spacer for the second unit. I don't know how difficult it would be to pry him loose from his European team. Plus his price tag shouldn't be too expensive maybe around 4-6 million per year.

He is a marginal one dimensional talent.

He is a marginal one dimensional talent.

He's a better team defender than general perception. Also that one dimension is a pivotal role in the modern NBA. Having a second unit of Coby, Denzel, Nik, Thad, and Luke gives that unit an instant identity, of legitimate threats from three point range. The more shooting you can get on this team the better they will be.

I prefer him to Dunn on the roster. I worry that the Bulls take away minutes from White (development) and Arci (earned) to spotlight Dunn for a trade. This strategy rarely (if ever) works and has opportunity cost.

For vet min, no brainer. Your asking literally MLE performance for 2mil guy which is absurd.

Iman Shumpert anyone? Slightly small for the Small Forward position at 6'5 but he's a gym rat like Lavine and has good enough defensive fundamentals to guard the 3. Valentine might be damaged goods and having Shumpert competing with C. Hutch for the back-up SF spot rather than just handing the job to C.Hutch is good. I'd cut Dunn and bring in Shumpert to add more depth at the wing.

No thanks. He seems to have a reputation of being a little difficult. I'd prefer to take my chances on Hutchinson and Valentine over Shumpert as he is rather one-dimensional.

I think the FO has worked extremely hard to bring in guys who are high character guys (and guys who will not give Kingpin much crap). You're right, I think Shump isn't that type of guy.

Shump was hella nice last year on an uptempo squad like the Kings last year before he went to the Rockets. If the Bulls play uptempo like the Kings, then it couldn't hurt having him on that 2nd unit + everybody knows that Hutchinson and Valentine are both heavily injury prone, so in their case, you need a ton of bodies at the 3

Does Hutch even have trade value?
I just wish he gets traded for #30 or a pair of two very high srps so FO can draft real talent.
The Bulls got baited when they took Blazers' guy. Instead they should have let them take their guy and draft the Blazer prospect.

It serves no purpose. The Bulls have plenty of shooting. Get me another 6'8 wing who can move.
