Ah right, I didn't know about this rule. Would Bulls fans be happy paying him MLE money if he was offered it?

The thing to do would be to offer him MLE 2 years, full 2 years and see if Bulls get scared off. Question is, is he worth that to acquiring team?

many Bulls fans think he's just a scrub due to his offense; so I think many won't be happy with that. I think it can still be corrected, but having a condensed season, there's not much coaching you can do at this time.


Personally, If all it took was the MLE, I'd be fine with it. What I'm scared of are the backloaded contract offers that he might get, making it a slippery slope for the Bulls management to match.

I think his defense is going to be important in the playoffs, which many seem to overlook. I think he was a huge part for us in the Pacers, Hawks and first game of the Heat series when Noah was off imo.

Because of the new CBA, there will be more free agents every offseason. Instead of 5 years for FA, you can only sign for maximum 4 years (unless its your FA).

Appreciate the effort. Or did you steal that list from somewhere else.

Where's Jeremy Lin?

Miami won't be getting Asik.

Only way he doesn't end up in Chicago is if Bulls have a shot at getting a better player for the same price, like KG...which won't happen.

Nash is number two short term.

His potential is through the roof. A franchise player.

That remains to be seen.

Okur went back to Turkey no?

Not yet. I'm guessing he might unless someone is stupid enough to pay him in the NBA.
