We definitely need a 2 that can come off the bench and create some offense and hit 3's while Derrick is on the bench, but not one that is due to make 11.6 million next year.

I wouldn't mind him coming back in a 6th man role off the bench to help Watson and Gibson score when the second unit comes in. I would be concerned over his defense, especially with the size disadvantage we would have with a Watson / Gordon backcourt, but I have seen Thibodeau make non-defensive minded players like Boozer work in his defensive system so I do not think that will be an issue.

But yea... in terms of contracts, Gordon has a pretty hefty contract. Practically the situation can't work out, plus there is always the chemistry issue. One of my biggest gripes years ago when Gordon was on the team was that he was too ball dominant when it was obvious the team could benefit from having the ball in Rose's hands more. Him coming back might raise some issues there.

Would I take him if he would be coming off the bench only and the contract numbers worked? Sure. But can the Bulls realistically get him back ? Given the chemistry concerns and the fact that Gordon is making over 10 mil a year, most definitely not.

Bad move. Dude is a straight chucker, bad passer, plays no d, and will hinder the bulls. The bulls need a 2 guard that can play off the ball like Ray Allen/Rip Hamilton

They should be looking for a guy like Afflalo, a young dude with a lot of potential not some washed up veteran with an out of wack ego.

Last time i checked rip and ray have rings, they can play d, play off the ball, so rose won't be hindered.

I was talking about Ben Gordon. Celtics ain't gonna let Ray go and Rip might be alright but I'd rather take Afflalo if there's a possibility.

You never know with ainge he was gonna trade ray last year
As for rip he wants his money and refused the trade to cleveland which would have lead to a buyout.
I was just stating the bulls would benefit the most from that type of shooting guard.

How is Afflalo not a perfect fit for the Bulls?

Korver+Watson <> Ben Gordon.

Pistons save a little cash, Bulls get a viable 6th man.
