What's next for the Chicago Bulls

Updated on August 29, 2012

With the end to the Chicago Bulls season, what is next on the horizon for the Bulls? Derrick Rose looking to miss at least half of the season with a knee injury, Deng with a bad wrist, and Boozer with bad defense, what lies ahead for the upcoming NBA season? Most dread to use the word rebuilding, but else can you call what's going on? Three members of the infamous bench mob are gone and no salary cap space to bring in any big name free agents, expectations are running low in the windy city and no answers insight.

So I'm putting the job in your hands Chicago sports fans. If you were at the top of the Bulls organization, what would you do to turn things around. Amnesty the Boozer contract, trade Noah and Deng for another option, or blow it up leaving only Rose to build around, you decide.

      True with some more talent we will be a force for years to come.

      Part of that is past history. A key to luring in free agents is having players on your roster, namely the stars, "recruit" them of sorts. D-Rose wasn't willing to do that a few years ago, believing he could carry the team himself. Beside, I think before free agents weren't sure about Chicago because it was so unstable in the past. I think with Thibodeau running the show now we have a better shot at getting guys interested.

      We have done a great job via the draft. The thing that bothers me is the lack of free agents interested in coming to Chicago. I watch them go to the Knicks, Clippers, and the Heat. They don't understand that if you win a championship in Chicago you will be god. We will always talk about the Bulls of the 90's, and the 85' Bears.

      Believe me, I'm a Bears fan first so it's hard to watch. Still I think players around the league are starting to see what the Bulls have which is stability at the top with Thibodeau and Forman and an excellent foundation in place with Rose. I honestly think the Bulls aren't at fault for what happened a few years ago. LBJ, Wade and Bosh had been planning that for years. To be honest, I think they're taking Thibs' ability to develop players for granted. Just look at Jimmy. If I were them I'd be trying to build this thing through the draft.

      Between this Bobcats pick and Mirotic I'm going nuts. The last we had a plan We missed on all three of the top free agents. We are a major market team we should not have to wait every four years to make moves. At some point you have to take chances. This city is ripe for a title in any sport. The Blackhawks championship was great but I'm not into hockey. The Sox won some years back but I really didn't have many people to celebrate with(my friends are jealous Cubs fans). And I have to watch the Bears blow season after season in the NFL.

      We're still young and have a lot of future promises coming our way. Cap space will clear up next summer. Nikola Mirotic keeps improving in Europe and we still have that extra first round pick from the Bobcats.

      I have faith in the future of the team. We had a better roster than most anticipated and that was why we were able to do so much with so little.

      They won't amnesty Boozer this next season. It's still too expensive and it won't help much. However, by 2014 that will change. Deng's contract will be up too. By dumping Boozer at the same time they free up loads of cap space and already have Butler there to replace Luol. Hopefully Noah can find a way to stay healthy, but in the mean time if I'm Gar Forman I'm using the draft to seek out a possible replacement at center while obviously looking for a second scoring option. Either way, the Bulls will have loads of flexibility next offseason.
