Bulls Cap situation; guys they can target for the Veteran Minimum.

We all know the Bulls have salary cap problems. We have 8 guys for about $72.2 million

Possibly 9 with Malcolm Thomas non guaranteed (I hope they bring him back). We also have our 20th pick and 49th pick put us at 11.

This will be who can we possibly bring in for the Veteran minimum and contribute. I'd say they bring in 2 maybe 3 guys. A back up center is the biggest need then back up SF. We can all speculate a trade including Deng which is most likely if we trade which I'm against unless we can get a draft pick between 5-10 and get a lot of cap space unlikely.

Back up centers we should go after;Cole Aldrich, Jermaine O'neal, Ryan Hollins, Ronny Turiaf, Chris Wilcox, Jason Collins, Bernard James, Greg Smith, Joel Pryzbilla, Haseem Thabeet, Daniel Orton, & Chris Anderson.

I'm a big fan of prolly 6 of those guys. Aldrich(my favorite of the group) O'Neal, Hollins, Turiaf, Wilcox, James.

Back up Small Forwards we should consider; Mike Scott, Quincy Miller, Mike Dunleavy, Xavier Henry, DeAndre Liggins, James White, Alan Anderson, DeMarre Carrol, Luke Babbitt and one guy who has a Non-Guaranteed contract next year who might just get cut by his team is Hedo Turkoglu.

Guys I wouldn't mind having. Xavier Henry(my favorite of the group). Mike Dunleavy, Quincy Miller, DeAndre Liggins & Hedo Turkoglu.

The 2 guys I'd want over the others are Cole Aldrich C and Xavier Henry SF/SG both guys are still young and can play on our Bench Mob and really help out with. Aldrich can play 10-15 minutes a night to give Noah a break. With Henry he can spell both Lu and Jimmy on the wings and I believe we will take a Wing in the draft 20 who will prolly only get 10 minutes a night because we all know That's how much Thibs plays a rookie. Also at their 49th pick they will go with a Big. (I'm not gonna put who I think they will draft bc I don't want to spark that argument).

So we'd have a nice lineup of

PG. Rose/ Hinrich/ Teague

SG. Jimmy/ Xavier Henry/ 20th pick

SF. Deng/ Xavier Henry/ 20th pick

PF. Boozer/ Taj/ Malcolm Thomas

C. Noah/ Cole Aldrich/ 49th pick

Our bench will still be solid esp. With the coaching of Thibs he will get everything out of those guys. So let me know what y'all think.
