The NBA can be a world of buy low and sell high. One of the tricky things about running a team is knowing when to cut bait with a player and when to hang on to one. Some guys can be effective into their mid to late 30s while other guys lose value in their late 20s. Some players just have a lucky season while other guys whom look like they're having a lucky season develop into stars. How has Chicago done with asset management...
Dwight Howard has officially decided to join the Houston Rockets, and Omer Asik doesn't want to play eight minutes a night as Dwight's back up. Any chance for a Chicago reunion for Asik...
The Chicago Bulls swore up and down they'd do whatever it takes to keep Omer Asik. They made their 2012 trade deadline decisions envisioning Omer on the roster as they could have traded him away for value but opted to keep him. In the end, they grossly miscalculated the market for Asik which seems foolish in retrospect...
The Bulls top priority this off-season was to resign back up center Omer Asik. Were they really cut off at the knees due to the Gilbert Arenas loophole or were they never going to match a serious offer on Omer anyway...
Alex Kennedy of hoopsworld reported that the Bulls are close to signing Marco Belinelli at the BAE. Such a move would mean several interesting things...
The Bulls have signed Vladimir Radmanovic to a one year deal at the league minimum while expecting to get an offer sheet from Houston on Omer Asik Friday or Saturday which I presently don't expect them to match, but they've been fairly tight lipped about. Rumor has it the Bulls are one of the few teams on Darko's list, and a signing of Dark would likely signal that Asik is gone...
The Chicago Bulls finally completed the trade of Kyle Korver to the Atlanta Hawks. Coming back for Chicago? Nothing. Absolutely nothing [technically, it can't be nothing which means we got a conditional second rounder or the rights to some foreign player who's 40]. However, sometimes, nothing isn't bad. Nothing generates a trade exception that will allow the Bulls to get something for nothing later, much like the Hawks just did...
I went on a long twitter rant about finances, basketball decisions, and the luxury tax with the Bulls yesterday, but so far, nothing they've done shows whether they're ready for significant financial commitment or not. The final two big money off-season decisions (Korver/Omer) will determine whether we're playing as a big market or a small market team...
