NBA Trade Rumors and Free Agents 2011: 10 SGs to Help Fill Chicago Bulls ...

Charles Barkley literally said this every time the Chicago Bulls played during these playoffs: Derrick Rose is the only guy on the Bulls who can create his own shot.In other words, Chicago lacked a reliable shooting guard, at least on the offensive end. Gar Forman and John Paxson decided not to part with young big men Taj Gibson and Omer Asik at the trade deadline to get the likes of Courtney Lee or O.J. Mayo. Even though Gibson and Asik have become fan favorites as part of the “Bench Mob,” teams have to give up talent to get talent in return. In my last article, I highlighted 10 possible players the Bulls could select with their three picks in the upcoming 2011 NBA draft. While it is certainly probable that Chicago will try to package its draft picks to get a shooting guard, the Bulls would likely have to part with the same two big men as they would have at this year's trade deadline. However, without Kurt Thomas necessarily available as a backup next year and the history of injuries between Carlos Boozer and Joakim Noah, it seems unlikely the Bulls will be more willing to send their frontcourt depth away. Instead, Forman and Paxson should turn to the free-agent market, where several potentially helpful shooting guards are available. The Bulls have enough cap room to make a mid-level contract offer. Assuming that still exists in this offseason, that's ideally enough to pick up one of the following veterans.Begin Slideshow
