When the curtain dropped on the Chicago Bulls’ season, the work out of Chi-Town was that the Bulls were not going to be making any major changes over the offseason. They would make a tweak here and there, try and ride out the loss of Derrick Rose until he could return, and hope to make a deep playoff run once Rose was healthy and back in the mix.

The closer we get to free agency, however, the more unlikely that scenario is starting to sound.

Over the weekend the news surfaced that the Bulls were, indeed, considering a major shakeup, potentially putting starting center Joakim Noah on the market along with Luol Deng. While some sources are saying that Noah is being dangled as a means to move Deng, and that the Bulls are interested in keeping Omer Asik and potentially CJ Watson and looking for the cap space to do it, it hardly seems logical for a team hoping to compete for a championship.

Frankly, the only way it makes sense for the Bulls to trade Noah is if they are getting a starting center in return, and the only star-caliber starting center who is potentially available this summer is Orlando’s Dwight Howard. if the Bulls were packaging Noah with Deng and taking back Howard and Hedo Turkoglu, or perhaps got involved in a bigger package that brought back JJ Redick, as well, it all makes perfect sense. Howard could carry the team while they waited for Rose to get healthy, and together they could lead the Bulls to postseason glory.

That would be the plan, anyway.

Anything short of such a bold move would be a huge risk for the Bulls, who owned the East’s best record even without Derrick Rose for long stretches of games in 2011-12. There’s no reason to believe they couldn’t win multiple championships in their current form once everyone was healthy, and giving up that chance for anything short of a homerun swing would likely derail the team and send them off in the wrong direction.

Is Joakim Noah really available via trade? Perhaps. But rest assured that it will take nothing less than a headline-grabbing trade to get Noah out of Chicago.

Lost cause, howard doesnt want to win as a #2 to derrick rose, rose will always be "the man" in chicago regardless, howard wants to be the man, which is why he wont go to LA, and wants to go to brooklyn, where he can overshadow deron williams

if he goes to brooklyn, he bcomes "the man" jsut like how melo went to NY and the fans completely stopped caring for stoudemire and took on Melo as the #1 guy

remember the "im coming home" tribute before his first game

they will do the same crap for howard, because NY fans have no loyalty

Would be huge if they could pull it off..

whether if Dwight wants to play there or not, if he's traded there he will play, and the championship that's almost certain (if Rose is at 100%) might make him change his mind.

That's a dick thing to say. The fans have no say in who they get. The Knicks' brass are the ones you can question. Has nothing at all to do with the fans. I'd suggest finding better words when describing a fan base or else don't describe them at all next time.

How do you know this? Did he say anywhere he didn't want to be number 2? IMO i think he just wants to play with a superstar and rose is one of the best, given we don't know what player he'll be when he gets back.

Also the so called "i'm coming home" song was because Melo was born in NY. They won't use the same song but if Howard does go to BK they should promote him no?

Deng + Noah +Korver (who ORL can decline his option to save $$)+29th pick+bobcats pick for D12 and Turk.

If D12 doesn't resign after 2013 season, bulls can decline Turk's option, amnesty boozer, and be left with Rose, Taj, Butler for 21 mil, plus whatever they pay for Asik giving them plenty of cap space (roughly 30 mil). They could then sell Dwight on adding him + decent player with leftover cap. If he doesn't re-sign Bulls have plenty of cap space to reload their roster plus Mirotic coming over the following season with a cheap rookie deal.

Of course YOU would. You are a CUBS fan. Your team and its fans think throwing shyt against the wall every year will eventually stick, and help them win it all. Too bad most sports franchises do not think like that.

Really? Thats why they are rebuilding this year, which is the right way to win a championship. Let me guess your a heat fan and you think the right way to win a championship is by buying it?

I never really get this whole buying championship. I mean regardless of how they come (draft, trade, FA) you still have to pay for them with money. Unless Chicago is going to pay their players in Chicago deep dish pizzas or something.

Well, he made a wish list or something like that, no? That's what I'm referring to man. If he gets traded to a bad team or situation, you won't hear me calling him a coward. But if Howard doesn't commit to resigning with the team he's offered to, they aren't pulling the trigger, at least that's the mindset most teams have with the exception of Houston.

All I said was he isn't interested in winning. Otherwise, Chicago would've been the place to consider. As far as we know, he isn't considering them at all. Chicago should just give up trying at this point.

Nope I am a Bulls fan my entire life born and raised in MO. I am also a lifelong Cardinals fan, and I KNOW FOR A FACT. That everything the Cubs try to do ends with an epic crash and burn.

Theo built up Boston by buying draft picks who fell because they would not sign, and then THEO threw 3, 4 times the money they should have got at them and they signed.

You can no longer do that in baseball with the new draft money pool. Until the Cubs win it all, they are a joke of a franchise.

Sorry i dont buy it. Im a magic fan, but all bias aside dwight shouldnt be pressured into making such a huge decision based on what others will say or how his former team is affected. A few years down the line all ppl are going to remember is how far he could take his team. I said the same when lebron left clev and howard will be treated the same regardless if hes leaving my fav team.
And i never ever questioned dwights will to win. The guy has shown up almost every night ready to play regardless of any minor injuries and he never complains about it.

Not really

Depending on Rose's knee injury (which is a huge factor), I would still put Chicago as the second best team in the East as constructed.

Gutting the team to bring in Dwight Howard isn't going to make the Bulls a more dangerous team without a relatively healthy Rose anyways.

Ideally, Rose gets healthy, Howard gets healthy, both players co-exists with their egos and motivations and challenge the Heat for a spot in the finals every year.

if you want Howard, you have to take Turko's contract as well. Contracts don't match up so you have to add Gibson as well. I don't know about the draft picks you have to give up that core of players to get Howard (as he a franchise player- i.e. the core)

I believe both of Howards and Turk's contract is like 27 Million

Noah and Deng is like approx 22Million- thus addition of Gibson ($1.5) and picks

IF Howard goes to Chicago, and takes the Bulls as far in the playoffs as rose ever did, with rose out for the season- all that it's roses team might go out the window.

the rose injury may create a scenario where both players have paid their dues to the franchise and #1s. then they could just start working together as co-captains once rose returns healthy in 2014.

trust me on this one, Chicago needs to stop pursuing him. He is too much of a headcase. Its been 2 years now, and he doesnt even know what he wants to do. I mean, at least guys like Lebron/Melo/CP3 had ideas of what they wanted before leaving. How can any team honestly expect Dwight help them win a championship when he doesnt even have priorities? After all this, would it really be suprising to anyone if a deal gets done, Dwight goes to a new team, then after about a year or so, he decides that he made the wrong choice, and starts this **** all over again. I would at least hope thats crossed through some people's heads. Especially the people who want to get Dwight.

Whats Rose gonna tell him?? "Ill make sure Chicago likes you more and put billboards all over with ur picture instead of mine."??? The only legitimate reason that Howard wouldnt want to come Chicago is that he doesn't want to be 2nd fiddle to Rose. He will always be Pippen to Rose's Jordan and he's not ok with that. Its sad but true.

Yes, this is how I know DH is a complete POS when it comes to his character... this is coming from a Bulls fan btw...

As someone who would love to have DH join the Bulls... I see the odds of it happening at about 1%... DH has shown no indication that he wants to sign an extension here. Without the guarantee of an extension, the Bulls have absolutely zero reason to trade for a rental, as Rose will be injured most of next year. This is Lebron 2.0 all over again, except Lebron, Wade, & Bosh actually considered the Bulls and talked to our FO, something DH hasn't even been willing to do via his agent.

You're being overly dramatic with that statement.No im not. Other people realize it too.

This is a weird comment that can't be backed up but I'm making it anyway: I don't think any NBA fan base loves a player more than Bulls fans love Derrick Rose. If you went into a Chicago sports bar and started trashing Rose during a Bulls game, you'd get beaten up and left for dead in an alley.

When it comes to homosexual remarks regarding a certain player, Bulls fans take the cake when it comes to Rose...

And to be fair, Rose is certainly the best player playing for his home-town city, so it makes sense.

Yes it's a known fact that Rose has converted more Chicagoans to the gay side than any sports figure in Chicago's history.

lol You're mad because Howard hasn't teased the Bulls organization and fans. Dwight Howard won't talk the Bulls FO because he doesn't want to go there just like Lebron, wade, and bosh were never going to go there.

I will tell ya tho he wants his cake, and he wants to eat it too, unfortunately for him thats prolly not gonna happen. Interested to see where Howard eventually ends up, this season or the next.

Howard doesn't go to Chicago because Adidas, his biggest endorsement deal, doesn't want him there (Rose is already there). And before someone wants to argue, Howard is 2nd only to Rose on Adidas's roster of NBA players and Rose makes $250M and I think the rumor was that Howard was offered $200M if he signed with a big market team. Granted only a rumor but if true $200M might ... (who am I kidding?) it would be just enough for me to act like a spoiled brat too.

Besides what could Stern really do about it if Howard takes the 4 year deal from NJ when his contract ends and Adidas makes up the lost pay?

You are using a circular argument, your logic is flawed. If DH won't talk to the Bulls FO because he doesn't want to go there then Wade & Bosh must have considered the Bulls, because they met with our FO, yet you say they never considered the Bulls.

There was a reason Chicago was trying to trade Deng for a bag of potato chips before the decision. There is also a reason DWade & Bosh met with the Bulls FO personally shortly before the decision.

My point is that however farfetched getting those three might have been, DH is even more farfetched. Your reading comprehension is quite poor.

What sources do you have to claim that those players ever considered the Bulls as a destination? Just because Chris Broussard said on ESPN that his sources told him that Lebron was close to signing with the bulls doesn't validate the claim that Lebron danced around the idea of signing with the Chicago Bulls. You call him a POS because of his refusal to meet with an organization that he has never had any interest in joining,U mad?

Also, DH is rumored to have deal in the works with Adidas that will trump Rose's.

Wow, I called him a POS because he is best friends with Boozer. Like I said, your reading comprehension skills suck, you are nothing but a stupid teenager tbh (and if you're an adult you are even dumber). Just because you didn't follow the happenings during the big three's decision doesn't mean I am talking out of my ***, do yourself a favor and use the resources you have at hand to confirm or deny my previous statements, you're a big boy now, it's not like I have the articles filed away in a cabinet, and honestly you're not worth me going through the effort of digging the info up for you.

All emotion, no substance. For someone of your intelligence I am sure it is hard to make the jump of logic that friends of douches tend to be douches (douches tend to stick together). Also for someone of your basketball awareness it must be new news to you that Booz is considered to be a douche by many.

There you go again sounding like a pretentious prick. I have dealt many of times with people such as yourself and I find the best way to deal with you is to ignore you. Egotism is the anesthetic that dulls the pain of stupidity,have a nice ****ing life you narcissistic *******.

Magic want young talent or picks. Not deng.
