That was quick.

Bulls need to hop in and grab Ronnie Brewer.

Sounds good. Brewer is pretty good on the defensive side. Plus we need that starter. Korver Great bench playa. Paxson FINALLY putting some balance in this team!

Wouldn't Korver be the starting SG with Deng at SF? Now there is just the bench to address...

I think most of us Bulls fans are holding out hope he isn't the starting SG. Otherwise the only player with Ball handling ability on the floor is Rose. (Deng can somewhat, but is pretty poor at it overall.)

One of the best and most appropriate signings this offseason, i really like what Chicago is doing. If they can get a decent 2 that can defend and a backup to Rose they are right in the mix to contend.

Livingston is a PG. He could help Rose with the playmaking though.

I guess they would try Boozer i think is really pushing for Brewer and Bulls like Livingston and would try to get Morrow without overpaying a lot from the Warriors.

I absolutely love the Bulls offseason so far, if you can get Brewer then I wouldn't be surprised to see you guys representing the East in the finals this year.

Oh ok, Brewer would be nice in the starting lineup to mix with the scoring

Get a GOOD 2 and the bulls have a good chance in the east.

Good shrewd signing by the bulls. Gives them some shooting off the pine, or perhaps a player to contend for a starting spot.

No they guy can't play any defense. If he shoots like he did last year though this deal will be totally worth it.

Nice signing, Korver is a hard worker and a solid defensive player, and a shooter of course.

Then they need to still sign a SG, because I can't think of anyone on their roster who can play there..

For the Bulls sake, Korver is better as a bench guy. He can play the two or three. He can be useful when the Bulls go small or big. I would start Brewer if we signed him and have Korver come off the bench.

LBJ really should have gone to CHI, all the pieces are there to make a run!
PG - Rose
SG - Korver (LBJ)
SF - Dang
PF - Boozer
C – Noha

Very happy about this, great signing!! Not only did we fill a need but we also got a great shooter for a great price. .... Also we got who I believe is the sexiest guy on the league. :o No homo.

Nice! I've always loved Kyle Korver. We needed the shooter and Korver's just that. I wonder who we go after next

Korver will do what Deng shouldn't be doing- which is shooting from the perimeter.

These two moves should make Chicago elite now. I think they'll be a 2/3 seed

With the moves made so far I can't stop thinking about how happy I am we have a capable coach who I am confident will utilize our players right. We have a lot of nice pieces that fit together well, but only if they are properly coached. Thibs!

He will not be able to help us when we play Miami, Atlanta, Boston,Orlando and a few others. WE can't have him guarding J.Johnson, Wade, Allen or any top guys, they will kill him. There are way to many articless on line talking about how bad his def is gping back years from multiple sources. Look at his shooting #'s studly but only 18 minutes per game. If he played even close to avg def he would play 30+ minutes a game. He'll be ok verus bad teams but against the good teams the guy his guarding will kill us. If he can't be out there at crunch time(because of his def) to open up the floor for Rose & Boozer what's the point.

Rose will play most of his time with what ever def SG(brewer just to put a name it may be i don't know) we get and he won't benefit from the signing. For you older Bulls fans it's like when Jordan wanted Walter Davis and Krause said no he can't play def will get B.Hanson, we won a title that year.

In the late 80's Isiah and the Pistons taught us it takes def to win championships, through many long though series. I know fans and ownership might forget the fact that it takes def to win a title the longer it goes since we've won a title. But a never thought John Paxson would forget it.

Shocker, you don't like it.

Then again, you were saying yesterday how Korver had signed with the Nets already :rolleyes:

We have one of the best defensive coaches in the game, I think he'll help Korver out a bit.
