Building on it

Promoted from the diaries. Some good discussion in the subsequent comments, regarding the maligned yet most likely course of the offseason: keeping the 2 picks and signing a couple midlevel FAs. -Matt

Building on the draft talk, I thought it might be cool to talk free agents.

The general opinion seems to be that the Bulls will be shooting for a big gun this season (Garnett, Harrington, etc.).  Personally, I'm not sold on any big name idea aside from Garnett (which seems like a pipedream to me).  Mining the web for lower-tier FA revealed a nice pool of PF/C's that might mesh well with our team.  Mohammed, Gooden, Wilcox, Przybilla, etc.  Wilcox in particular might be a great find.  Check out his numbers...

Team G GS MPG FGM-A FG% 3PM-A 3P% FTM-A FT% OFF DEF TOT APG SPG BPG TO PF PPG
  LAC  48 1 13.7 90-168  .536 0-2  .000 38-59  .644 1.0 2.6 3.6 .4 .31 .44 .67 2.10 4.5
  SEA  18 12 28.7 107-174  .615 0-0  .000 35-46  .761 2.4 4.5 6.9 1.1 .44 .22 1.33 3.20 13.8

I'm sure that looks garbled, the numbers that matter are 14 pts/gm, 7 boards, 1 steal.  also, 61.5% the field.

I really think that we can land one-two solid, reasonably priced FA in this summer's market.  Not many teams have money and a good portion of the players probably won't cost a lot.  
Personally, i think Wilcox would shine on our team.
