Rodney Stuckey?


First fanpost here so sorry if it's a little off but one player I haven't heard much talk about in relation to the Bulls this offseason has been Rodney Stuckey. He's currently a restricted free agent so the Pistons could match any potential offer for him but they just drafted Brandon Knight and already have a back court full of BK, Will Bynum, Ben Gordon, and Rip Hamilton (who they may not amnesty after all). I know Stuckey has always been a point guard but he's listed at 6'5'' 205 lbs so he definitely has 2-guard size (Arron Afflalo is listed at 6'5'' 215 lbs for comparisons sake).

Pros: He can obviously handle the ball well as he has been Detroit's starting point guard for a while now and could take some pressure off of Derrick in that area. He ranked in the top 25 in the league in free throw percentage shooting 86.6 percent and got to the line about 5.4 times per game. His PER last year was 18.46 which is pretty darn good for a missing championship piece.

Cons: Career 26.6 percent from the 3-point line and hit 28.9 percent of his threes last year. Obviously the Bulls want a two-guard who can hit the three consistently but this is really the only knock I can find on Stuckey's game. Maybe if he wasn't controlling the ball all of the time and taking contested threes his percentage would go up? Probably not significantly but it could creep up to around 31 percent. Although he played limited time at sg for the Pistons last year, his defensive PER was 15.0, completely average.

Is he attainable with a MLE offer? Not really sure about that one but I think it's worth a try. What do you guys think? (Also the preview button wasn't working so if this looks terrible my bad.
