Everybody knows that the Chicago Bulls are in need of a starting two-guard, sure the Keith Bogans/Ronnie Brewer/Kyle Korver is useful, but they're simply role-players.
The Bulls are already ½ a game behind the Miami Heat for second place in the East, and they have one of the best defenses in the league, now imagine Chicago with a starting shooting-guard on the team and Joakim Noah coming back. The Bulls would be unstoppable on both sides of the court.
According to Hoops World, Bulls scouts have been touring the country evaluating prospects and they have their sights on Courtney Lee, Anthony Parker, Shannon Brown, Demar DeRozan and O.J. Mayo. The first two being the most likely to be traded for.
My choice would be Brown, he's very athletic and has a good shooting range, but sources say he doesn't want to be traded and on his contract he has right to disapprove any trade offer.
The Bulls have tried to acquire DeRozan and Mayo, but negotiations went nowhere. DeRozan might have been a nice pick-up, but Mayo has had some trouble with the league and most recently he was suspended 10-games for substance abuse.
That leaves only Lee and Parker. Anthony Parker in my opinion is too old and has lost his shooting touch (he has currently an .380 shooting percentage from the field) and isn't as quick as I would like.
Courtney Lee is still two-or-three years away from his true potential, but he's a decent shooter and a solid defender. He can definitely contribute to the team, but will his youth get in the way?
I haven't heard any rumors yet on what the Bulls might want to give, but I can assure you Chicago will make a trade for a two-guard before the trade-deadline.
What are your thoughts on possibly getting Lee? And would you like the Bulls to try and get someone else? Who?
