[UPDATE by your friendly BullsBlogger, 09/15/09 10:45 AM CDT: More from Doug on Asik's performance against Serbia ]

I know what some of you are thinking: why dedicate so much to someone who's not even a Bull? But enough about Michael Jordan...

Doug Thonus at ChicagoNow dons his scouting hat watching some tape of Asik both in his game against Poland as well as a more recent contest against the Gasol brothers of Spain.

Go read the whole thing, but the summation is that while Asik doesn't have much offensive polish, he knows where he needs to be on the court and can finish.

Thinking about a future PF/C rotation is almost impossible at this point (will Miller fall off a cliff in terms of performance? Do the Bulls want to keep Tyrus at all? Bosh, Amare, Boozer?), but any young adequate big man is worth keeping, and makes the inadequate big men like Aaron Gray and Taj Gibson (just figuring, who knows...) less important, which would be just as nice of a bonus.
