As the Chicago Bulls continue to be patient during the Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes, there are free agents that management have to keep their eyes on. It's understandable to wait out the decision by Anthony, but they can't let other free agents slip away during the process.
The free agents available particularly the small forwards can be key to a championship run. With LeBron James possibly leaving, the Bulls would be favorites in the east even if they don't sign Melo.
Luol Deng is a familiar face to this organization. Tom Thibodeau's favorite player, will definitely bring defense, and cohesion to this team.
Chandler Parsons is a three point specialist that can also be electricfying in the open court. He can stretch the defense with his shooting ability.
Paul Pierce is long in the tooth but still has some game left. He's the only player on this list who can consistently create his on shot. He can score from different areas on the court.
Either or, The Bulls have been busy making contact with all three parties as they wait on Anthony. Should the Melo deal not pan out, there are options that can still make Chicago a front runner in the east again.
