Kelenaa Azubuike would have been someone I rooted for the Bulls to get last summer, and now he's available for the minimum after being waived by the Knicks. Now, Azubuike is still recovering from knee surgery. He hasn't suited up yet since the injury, but he claimed he could have played in the Knicks last game.
The Knicks weren't so optimistic about where he was. They claimed he was 80% and that it would take too long for him to get healthy.
Well, maybe that's the case, or maybe it's not. I don't know how healthy he is or how long it will take him to get to 100%. I know at 100% health, he's a guy who could legitimately be a starting SG for us and not just a guy who's a minor upgrade to Keith Bogans.
He has potential to be the best SG on our team, faint praise that is.
Azubuike can shoot, he can defend a bit, and he has more floor game than your typically spot up shooter even if it's not a ton. He basiaclly fits everything we need out of a role playing SG.
Forget Rasual Butler and Corey Brewer and take a chance on Azubuike. Maybe he won't work out because of the knee, but if he does work out he might legitimately help solve our SG problems. If Corey or Rasual work out, they're still just filler guys who provide depth to protect from injuries not solutions to improve the team in any considerable way.
