Alright Bulls fans. Luol Deng has been traded to the Cavaliers and this will save the Bulls about $15 million in cap room. Good news is, Andrew Bynum will be released today and three draft picks will be coming back in return. This is good news. The Bulls, as usual, aren’t going anywhere anyway so they might as well get what they can before players like Deng become free agents.
Like I said, the Bulls get three draft picks and and one of those is for this upcoming offseason which will give them two first round picks. The other two are anywhere from 2015-2017. Assuming the idiot for an head coach is gone by the end of this season, one of these picks might actually turn out to be pretty good. This cap space will also include the Bulls using the amnesty clause on Carlos Boozer which will save them even more money next year. All I know is that Carmelo Anthony is available and Kevin Love wants out of Minnesota after this season but teams in the West may have more to offer. It’s up to the village idiot, John Paxson to do something because Derrick Rose will not be the same player once (or if) he returns.
It’s time for the Bulls to wipe the slate clean. It will be painful but it’s the NBA. They will need to suck for a while before finding gems in the draft. It doesn’t help that a lot of players come right out of college with only playing a year or two. That’s another reason why the NBA has sucked big time the last decade or so. A lot of these players only go for one year and they don’t develop into an NBA-caliber player.
It all started with this trade. Next up, trade Noah or whoever else they can and try to get some quality players back or just trade them to free up cap space. The Bulls need to build a team through the draft and add someone such as Kevin Love or Carmelo Anthony to help out eventually. Last but not least, the PATHETIC excuse for a head coach needs to be tossed after this season. The risk of him injuring more players is not worth winning some regular season game when they are up 30 and the starters are still out there. Someone like Jeff Van Gundy could and should be a top choice if the Bulls are serious about contending.
