Nuggets will buy out McDyess' contract, making him an unrestricted free agent. Realgm reports that 19 teams have already contacted McDyess about a contract. Anyone can assume that among these teams are the Pistons, Celtics, Cavs, and Bulls.
So who will sign McDyess? Many teams in the east need McDyess' talents. Boston has make its interest public. The media has stated it is expected Detroit to take him back in 30 days. Cleveland would love to put McDyess in front of Big Ben Wallace. The Bulls could use McDyess' consistency in the power forward position.
Whichever team signs McDyess in the east will have an immediate advantage. That is because, by signing McDyess, the other teams don't have him! In the Bulls' case, they need McDyess, but they also need to keep McDyess away from the other teams in the east.
Tyrus Thomas. Some Bulls fans will be against McDyess on the bulls, because it will pull time away from Tyrus. Unfortunately, Tyrus is not consistent- no one knows what to expect from him night to night. McDyess is a tested veteran forward , a reliable backup, important teacher, a player with substantial playoff experience, and a player who knows how to be a starter.
I don't believe the Bulls will sign McDyess. The competition to sign him will be fierce, and he may have preferences that are non-financial. Also, If the Bulls sign McDyess, Gordon may become upset ($wise), so, there may be a risk there. Bottom line, if McDyess was a power forward on the bulls, the Bulls would win more games. Can anyone disagree? Anyone rather him be on the Celtics, Cavs, or Pistons?
