The Chicago Bulls have been looking to find someone too play alongside Derrick Rose for years.
First they had Ben Gordon but ideally his lack of defense and his requirement to have to ball to succeed wasn’t a great fit.
Net the role went to Kirk Hinrich. I loved Hinrich but the amount of time he had to spend guarding opposing shooting guards, at his size, probably hurt his career.
Last season they are the trio of Keith Bogans, Kyle Korver and Ronnie Brewer. None have much upside and alone were great fits. Now if you could have combined them all then they may have really had something.
This offseason they added Richard Hamilton and while it is a nice move it isn’t a long-term answer. Hell with him only playing in 16 games so far this season it hasn’t been much of a short-term answer either.
With so much money invested in Rose, Joakim Noah, Carlos Boozer and Luol Deng it will be difficult to acquire someone through free agency. Therefore their best bet is the draft.
