Great heart. Don't count on him being happy off the bench though, he's got a pretty big chip on his shoulder. I think he's the type of player that can add a lot to a roster that's already winning though.
"Juuuuuuuuuuuuust a bit outside. Wild Thing tried for the corner and missed."
great pickup guys and so excited about this. if given some playing time this guy could really be a starter... do we still intend to pick some more players? Do we keep our backup C Haddadi? hopefully Gilbert stays for minimal contract as well. Azubuike, House and Redd available maybe, hope we could get 1 of them.
Looks like the only additions we might add is a spot up shooter and a backup C.
Maybe keep Hadaddi, but we might just have speights be backup C and Arthur backup pf... Bayless helps with outside shooting but i still want a knockdown shooter.
I wouldn't close the book on OJ yet. We have his bird rights so it's still possible for us to resign him...We could even package him, pargo, and cunningham up for a shooter and a backup center. That would be ideal.
Phoenix is said to have a lot of interest. They have a roster full of shooters and a need for depth players(like cunningham and pargo). Also, they probably have the most cap space of any team in the NBA right now.
We could send them OJ, Pargo, and Cunningham (roughly 10 mil in cap space; nearly 6 mil of that over the luxury tax(OJ's contract)). In return, we get Jared Dudley(41% 3pt shooter) and a 1st round pick(now that they have so many). His salary is 4 mil, so that puts us back under the tax threshold; it also gives us that much needed long-range shooter we've needed and allows Bayless to play his true position.
This is just one of many examples...there are so many teams that want OJ and could use role players like Cunningham and Pargo...let's get something done Wallace! I applaud you for the Bayless pickup but he doesn't solve the shooting woes
hey there, chicago fan here
would you guys be interested in a S&T involving OJ and Kyle Korver? does the interest you?
if the bulls pick up thyr option KK's contract for this year will be 5 mil and he will be a free agent at the end of the season
Get ready for number 7 !
I think ya'll would in turn have to send us a 1st round pick and Korver..Cunningham is a really good player and Pargo has a lot of potential...ya'll would be happy with this trade, we just don't have room for them on the squad anymore.
I thought Chicago was OK on cap room?? I might be wrong though...but yeah a deal like this wouldn't be possible unless the team had cap space...that's why I think Phoenix would be perfect...
I agree with you on Dudley...great 3pt shooter that plays hard nose D. He can play both the 2 and 3. The only thing about keeping Cunningham over Pon is that Cunningham gets paid more; I don't think sending off Pons contract would get us under the threshold.
Anyways...Speights can handle the minutes at both backups I believe if he had to...
If only Chris Wallace was as smart as me...lmao
Trade Rumors involving Wolves
Looking to get possibly Webster, Ellington, or Wesley Johnson for Cunningham?
Intriguing…Webster and Ellington have proven they can shoot the ball, but Johnson has potential to be a great player still. Atleast we’re trying to get something done.
well i guess Webster was just waived by Minny. If we can sign him for cheap i say we go get him. He fits the need more than Ellington imo because he can play sf
I think we can afford to sign him for cheap and stay under the threshold as long as we trade a contract like Cunningham for a draft pick
