"The Bulls can get in position to add two maximum salary players with the contracts of Drew Gooden and Larry Hughes expiring by the summer of 2010 and let Ben Gordon go after this season. They also easily could deal either or both of Kirk Hinrich and Andres Nocioni for expiring deals and then be committed to, effectively, Rose and Luol Deng. And that's two pretty good players as a base, likely better than the Knicks would be able to offer."
What he is really saying is scrap the team and start over, build around Rose and try and make big moves through free agency. It backfired the last time but playing with Rose should be good selling point to free agents and we don't have former Bulls crying about how Jerry Kraus hurt there feelings this time around. I am tired of rebuilding and we will suck with out Gordon next year (although we do suck now so...) but there are allot of great players available in 2010 maybe we would be foolish to not even get in the game.
