Players can inexplicably slip, but it's wishful thinking to say the least. With more and more resources put into scouting these days, picks like a Jimmy Butler or Isaiah Thomas really are anomalies and exceptions.

I wouldn't mind us trading anyone not named Jimmy Butler to move up and take one of those PGs not named Lonzo Ball.

We desperately need a PG, Rondo isn't our answer and neither is Cameron fucking Payne.

But then again....
Outside of Butler, I don't know who else could be baited so they can move up the draft board to acquire him.

Yeah the weaknesses vid for Collins is like watching another player. He really looks like trash compared to the smooth player who trashing the comp in the strengths

I do like bam's ability to clear out players and still be mobile.

Yeah be great to trade up for a pg. but yeah wishful thinking

Man I wish Wade would opt out

Thoughts on OG anunoby? Athletic freak with a lot question of marks but the dreaded/coveted high potential.

I'd put him in the group of guys I'd like to see the bulls draft.

How about the ferguson kid who did a Brandon Jennings and played overseas for a season after graduating high school? Athletic 3 and d player the bulls really need.

I hope so for the Bulls sake but I wouldn't blame him for staying either.


Says the Bulls could have $37 million in cap space available if he opts out. Should they join bidding war for Paul George, or CP3 if something crazy happens in his mood? Or just go young and rebuild?

George isn't a free agent until 2018, and that's if he opts out of the final year of his contract, so Wade opting out this offseason won't help them in that regard. CP3 doesn't fit the idea of a youth movement, but he is obviously way better than Rondo. I don't think he's a realistic option though, and he'd be another short-term fix when it comes down to it.

speaking hypothetically, yeah why not go for CP3 if they have the cap. why not utilize butler prime years instead of this stuck on a treadmill roster. this offseasons fa's looks better than next years anyway.

So... three common names are:

Luke Kennard - (2nd coming of Doug?)
Terrance Ferguson - (Jamal Crawford LITE?)
Donovan Mitchell - (3&D?)

Hard to get excited imho.

BTW does this mean end of Denzel Valentine before anything started?

He might get some more opportunities this season, but I doubt anyone's sold on him at this juncture.

Mitchell please

Valentine needs consistent minutes. He had a good stretch of games when wade was out.

To play the hypothetical game, it would just great if both Rondo and wade went away. Would you guys be happy with Redick and mills as the replacements
