NBA Top 30 Shooting Guards (No Current Bulls)

Do the Bulls have a hole at shooting guard?  We've been debating the merits of Rudy, Henry and McGrady for a while now.  Kelly Dwyer is ranking the top 30 at ever position (Rose was #5 point guard) and its pretty clear that Deng, Boozer and Noah will all be on that list, with each guy a candidate for top 10 inclusion.  The one position where the Bulls have no one is SG.  How important is it that the Bulls add a high-quality 2 guard to the roster?

Here is 20 thru 11 on Dwyer's List -

Notably, the list includes 4 former Bulls: 18. J.R. Smith, 15. John Salmons, 14. Ben Gordon and 12. Jamal Crawford  The list also includes off-season target J.J. Redick 17 and Sam Smith favorite Monta Ellis (#11).  Hell, even Thabo made it at #29.

30 thru 21 -

 Is Brewer/Korver/Watson/Bogans enough?  What kind of production do the Bulls need out of the 2 guard position to be successful?

Last year shooting guard was by far the Bulls least productive position, with an average PER of 12.8 a game.  By comparison, other top point guards (guys ranked 1 thru 4 on Dwyers list ) received better production out of their back court mates than Rose - the Utah Jazz got an average PER of 14.2, the Suns got 17.5, the Celtics got 16.2 and the Hornets got 14.5.

Can we expect a boost from our current guys?  I believe so, but I still think we should be reaching to get someone better.  Some people have an irrational fear that pairing Rose with a 2 guard who wants the ball may hurt the Bulls, but I think its the opposite.  This post isn't really to nominate someone for the position, but to just highlight the Bulls still haven't found a player to pair with Rose.  Or do you guys think what the Bulls currently have at the 2 is enough?



10 thru 1 have been published with Wade #1 and Kobe #2.   And I think I'd take Manu 4 and K-Mart at 8.
