    Who knows at this point who we would target. The class is gonna be loaded. If our young core and vets shows promise over the next 2 years, we will be a draw. It has less to do with FO then opportunity. The Lakers have a **** FO, yet somehow they are still a draw because of their name brand. It's not like we don't have a name brand either.
    Was GSW ever a draw before they showed promise in a good playoff series vs. the Spurs? Nope. They showed promise, had flexibility, and made things happen. This narrative of hating our franchise is pointless. You have to believe we can do something otherwise what's the point of even following them

    Chicago isnít LA. LA has perfect weather basically all day everyday. Chicago has nice weather for maybe 3 months a year. Weíre not Hollywood. Good food, sure. But weíre easily one of the most overrated cities in the US. Itís a fine city, but itís not a huge destination for star athletes.

    GS still doesnít really sign free agents. They got Durant sure. But theyíre a historic team. Not sure the comparison youíre trying to make. Their core talent was built through the draft, they became historic, and Durant jumped aboard. Very different scenario than the Bulls.

    IDK who is any sort of guaruntee, but if we are good, who knows, Good players want to join good teams. Maybe Lavine and Lauri end up allstars by then.

    Damien Lillard would be interesting Gianis is obviously still in his prime and would be the #1 target. Maybe you convince him that joining our core would be better than sticking in Milwalkee, not a far move. ect. (i can sell it doubt Garpax could)

    I mean if you look up and down the Milwalkee roster besides Gianis can you tell me they are superbly more tallented than us. I think there is also a big chance a guy like Gianis will want to a big city too.

    The Lakers FO is a joke, sure, but let's not gloss over the fact that they have LeBron. He drew FA's to Cleveland, of all places.

    Maybe it's an attractive destination here in 2-3 years, but banking on that is a pretty awful plan considering this FO's track record.

    How can I name a player now when we wonít know what our biggest need will necessarily be. Obviously you go for Giannis when Portee expires. There are a lot of great players that should be available. The o lot thing that will attract them is if we are good. Thatís why we need to be savvy getting short term vets that make us a playoff team

    Iíd give Bev and Ome of the Small ball PF Free Agents each 10-12ish for 2 years. When those guys start getting above their pay grade, teams getting into cap probs. See JR Smith and Tristan as prime examples

    This is a prime year to overpay for a couple contributors imo, and that's exactly what the bulls will have to do to attract anyone right now.
    These aren't the DRose bulls, obviously

    The 76ers did this perfect with Redick. They had a lot of cap space because all their stars were on rookie deals. They lacked shooting and Redick was a perfect fit. They overpaid him giving him 23 million for a year, and in return, he gave them a market value year at 12.5 this year. We should try to get our Cap Space to about 25 Million or so. Then go out and sign 1 guy to 15 million and 1 guy to 10 million, or 12.5 and 12.5. Some combo of that to get 2 solid veteran role players. Maybe we find a team with a quality player on a salary they want to dump and offer them Dunn for that guy. Then sign 1 more player. I know we could stretch Felicio's contract, but he expires in 2 years anyways, so why add a few million in dead cap to the years that are more important later down the line. I think that would be a bad idea.

    Bev at 15 mil per? Lol....GTFOH. If you could get Brogdon for 17-20, the choice is clear. Thatís a gross price tag for Bev. The NBA is absolutely ridiculous with these contracts. Then people wonder why the parity has been bad for so long. Super teams like GS are obviously a culprit, but overpaying role players like that, and maxing our guys like Middleton hurt just as much.

    It doesn't really matter if you think we can't get a guy. That doesn't mean you operate your team as if it already lost out on getting someone. Talk about a bad look for a FO if they did that. We aren't the Knicks where we are basically a 1 asset team trying to convince stars to join. We are loaded with assets right now. Look at the Nets. They were the laughing stock of the NBA. They don't even really that great of a young core. Yeah they have a solid defensive C. They have a young PG who they might not even keep. But after 1 year of playoff baskeball, they are suddenly in the market for star players, and the supposed Front Runners as well.

    Brooklyn has had different management over the past 10 years right? But either way, Brogdon is a good player and would make this team better. Or, you could not pursue, hope to land a giannis or Lillard or whoever, which letís be honest, isnít happening.

    If it's 1 or 2 years it's not that bad, but if someone gives him that for 3-4, that's a joke. The players like Middleton getting Max deals is the biggest issue in the NBA. Batum was a great example of that. Joe Johnson getting that max deal he got was bad. Everyone knows who is truly elite, and who is a secondary player. Middleton proved that he is too inconsistent to be a 2 option let alone get 1 option money. He's more of a 3rd guy on a great team. Another bad contract out there is Steven Adams. He's a limited old fashioned Center, making crazy money that makes it impossible to improve that team further, and they will never be good enough. Kevin Love's contract is ridiculous as well. He's a 3rd option on a great team, making 25+ million for 5 years, and he's hurt every year. Chris Paul has one of the biggest jokes of a contract in NBA history.
