Bulls can afford that. They'll set him up with a 53M-57M(with incentives) contract.
He'll get around $12M in 2014, which gives the Bulls enough room to sign Mirotic and add somebody with BAE(most likely Hinrich).
I'm looking forward to see the same faces next season except Boozer. Get rid of Booz, move Taj to starting PF and have Mirotic backing him up as sixth man. Then pick a center out of the draft or through Boozer TPE(crossing my fingers).
Bad source, regurgitated topic. I'll play along though:
Deng's definitely asking for that. That's what Josh Smith just got. Deng > Smith. Iguodala just got ~$12M annually. Deng will get between 12-15/year. But it won't be from the Bulls unless we win the championship this year.
I'm worried about losing Deng though - not for the team's success but moreso how Thibs & Rose will feel about it
