    Nothing they suck this year :(


    I swear we are just a star player away from being good. Conley isn't that guy.

    They've needed a "star" or at least somebody who can score FOR THEIR ENTIRE EXISTENCE.

    Bulls get rid of team through injuries or trades. Get better.

    Makes sense.

    I'm hoping the Bulls can lure in Kevin Love this summer Gunny.

    Here my view..

    Love wants playoffs, rumor is he wants to go to the Lakers. However, the Lakers literally have no assets worthy of Kevin Love - or even close. The only way is if they land a Top-5 pick in this draft. Love is under contract for the rest of this year, next year, then a player option. Popular belief is he'll not use that player option to become a free agent. Which means he would be a 2015 free agent. The Lakers have mad money this year, and it's likely they'll pursue Melo, Bosh, Monroe, or some of the other key free agents. Which means, it's unlikely they'll have $$ to buy him outright. T'Wolves can't risk not trading him this summer (unless they get lucky in the lotto) as he could become a free agent and walk for nothing. This summer is when his value will be the highest, when a team knows he's promised to be there for a year, or potentially two, and have his bird rights.

    Bulls have Nikola Mirotic (euro-stud PF, potential of next Dirk), future SAC 1st, future CHA 1st, 2 future POR 2nds, & all CHI 1sts & 2nds. Bulls can offer a package of Mirotic, Boozer (1yr exp deal), Teague, and multiple 1st rounds.

    Rose - Snell - Butler - Love - Noah

    Mirotic is interesting, I think they'll keep him simply because he's cheaper and has some massive potential. But rumours have swayed either way on whether he actually wants to come out.

    Boozer will be amnestied if they can't trade him.

    Apparently the Bulls are on 'Melo's potential list.

    But meh, we''ll probably do nothing but resign Kirk Hinrich.
