The Best Case Scenario For The Bulls.

Now that we have cap-space to land a top Free-Agent what is the best case scenario for us this off-season?

I think we should target Chris Bosh - If we land Bosh we will have a hole to fill at the SG position and we all know Kirk is not the long-term answer for the position. We really would need a shooter who could stretch the defense and create room for Rose and Bosh to operate.

We currently have a draft pick that will fall somewhere in the middle of the 1st round. The best player available that would fill a need would be Xavier Henry of Kansas. Right now has him projected as the 15th pick, which would be around where we would be picking. Henry is a 6-6 lefty who can shoot the lights out and is only 19.

If we were able to draft him we would have a three-guard line-up of Rose, Henry and Hinrich. With Rose, Bosh and Deng Henry would not have to carry the scoring load and could focus on his D and spot up shooting. As far as bigs we would have Bosh, Noah, JJ and Taj. I assume Asik will be available next season and we could always bring Miller back on a smaller salary. 

I think this is the most realistic and best case scenario for the Bulls this off-season. Bosh would be the oldest player in that starting line-up at 26. Rose would be 22, Henry 20, with both Deng and Noah 25. Our line-up would look like this:

PG - Rose / Hinrich / D-leaguer ?

SG - Henry / Hinrich / D-leaguer ?

SF -  Deng / Johnson / Minimum Vet ?

PF -  Bosh / Gibson / Richards ?

C-     Noah / Miller / Asik 


This team would have everything you could want. Outside shooting (Henry, Deng and Kirk), Low-post scoring (Bosh, Gibson) , Defense (Deng, Kirk, Bosh, Noah, Gibson), Shotblocking (Noah, Gibson, Bosh), Rebounding (Deng, Noah, Bosh, Gibson) and Superstars (Rose, Bosh). Give me your thoughts and let the race to 2010 begin!
