Unfortunately,I think we should let Ben Gordon go since we have Salmons and Deng coming back next year.

Barring lockout we should have no problem signing Bosh in 2010.

My Projected line up for next year.

PG-Rose
SG-Salmons
SF-Deng
PF-Tyrus Thomas
C-Noah

A plus would be if we can somehow get a True Center in the draft,if not I don't see why we can't hire a Post Specialist like Patrick Ewing to get Tyrusand Joakim a better offensive game.

Once again nothing against Ben but I think that his height for being a 2 guard is a defensive liability,plus if we constantly need Ben Gordon to save useverytime we are down,something is wrong coaching wise.

No disrespect to Del Negro,but his coaching was exposed in this series,I hope he get better if not, I think that my original choice,Bill Laimbeer should begiven a interview.

Im about tired of posting in yall threads like Im a fan lol...but what I said in the other game thread was

Charles Barkely is breaking down the Bulls perfectly right now for those watching...what he said about BG is exactly how I feel...

they probably wont need BG next year when Deng comes back healthy...

Rose
Salmons
Deng
Thomas
Noah

Hinrich off the bench, with cap flexablity....

and the Bulls got 2 first round picks in the teens...try to make a package to make a run at maybe Jordin Hill or somebody, or end up with D. Blair/BJ Mullens/J. Johnson and another guard, you good...


1 word . 2 words .

Chris Bosh .
theres a few teams about to make a run to get him off Tor this offseason with the Pistons being at the top of the list.....and whoever gets him,that team's fanbase will ultimately
, cuz you not winning nochampionship with Chris Bosh. "Franchise" players dont lead their teams to a 20-30 win season in a weak conference (who command max money at that)...I dont give a damn who he playing with, that aint supposed to happen.

But the Raptors also don't have really good surrounding players like we do .

CB was the star of that team , & I don't believe that the Center should be the best player on the team ...

You should at least have guards/forwards near that level .

Rose/Salmons&Deng/Bosh/Thomas/Noah

the possibilities .

We can get rid of Gray, Tim Thomas, Johnson ... we have a whole bench that doesn't play .

No one wants Tim Thomas, so we're gonna have to pay him to sit. Even though BG7 hurts us, I think we should resign him. Next year is Miller's lastyear, so it gives us enough money to get Chris Bosh. We truly need a real SG, Salmons isn't a pure and BG is too short. Until we do, trade BG7 that'sif we resign him.

they need another big man bad tho, I bet he'll be in consideration. Noah needs help at the 5 - way too fragile, Thomas is only 6'8-6'9, and BradMiller is on shrooms.

and they aint got 2 picks in the teens, I was trippin....

Gonna have to wait till 2010 to get Bosh...
The Raps are gonna let him go this offseason, watch....they know he aint resigning, so they gon try to get something for him.

The Bulls have two picks, their own and one from the Thabo trade with OKC.

And from what I've read, Colangelo is keeping Bosh for now. If the Raptors suck in February, then he's good as gone by the trade deadline. Onlything certain is Bosh will be leaving Toronto by next summer

I'm not advising them to do anything crazy, I do have a few ideas, but I'm tombout dramatically improve the individual and team defense. As heated as Iam right now about the loss, I think the team can compete for an eastern conference championship next year. Had we won tonight, I feel the Bulls would havebeat the Magic. We exchanged blowout victories after the trade. Howard gonna be a beast no matter who he plays against.

Bulls should sign Gordon and either trade or buyout Dengs contract. Deng along with the two first round picks and another player might land Bosh, but then whatdo you do with Tyrus Thomas? That same trade could be used to bring an all-star at the 2 or something dependable at the 5.

TT is an athletic power forward with a jumpshot, blocks and rebounding skills, all like Bosh, but younger.

I say see what the team can do but keep a tight reign on the season. If there is no trade of value for Deng and why not im Thomas since the coach won'tplay him, I say buy-out. As a last resport make Deng earn his time in a ten man rotation. If a coaching change is necessary, make it happen. Look for anall-star guard. Sign a big man coahc for Tyrus, Grey and Noah. Also, look for tutor for Rose.

I could see signing Ron Artest for a second run. He's a free agent this year, unrestricted. Put him at the 2 or 3 to prepare for a series vs LeBron orDWade. Ron can score but his key contributions would be toughness and team defense. Jamal Crawford could opt out. He can give the Bulls the 20 ppg if Ben goeselsewhere. He's a taller sg that can also go for 40.
