irving is 6-2. this is ben gordon all over again. the bulls need a 2 guard who is atleast 6-5.

JR Smith at times can just flat out play some brilliant ball, and Mayo is still a possibility I just don't see the Bulls taking risks and getting rid of Taj. Taj is a very flawed player but Boozer is not lighting the world on fire either so I see them holding on to him until they can find a similar player, I do think Biyombom from Congo can be better than Taj though.

As for Irving as the next Ben Gordon I don't see it. For one Irving is a true PG not a SG like Gordon and two hes a better ball handler.

Re: Is it too soon to discuss the NBA draft?

i'm not familiar with him as a player, as i dont want watch any ncaa basketball.
i was just dropping bens name regarding irvings size. i just dont like the idea pairing derrick with a smaller guard than he is.

i agree gibson is nice safety to have on the bench. he plays good d. and you can never be sure about boozs and noah health. plus i dont know for how much longer we will see kurt in a bulls uniform.

my ideal plan would be sign jr smith and try out kelenna azubuike whether he is healty.

Half of the top ten teams in the draft are looking for a PG of the future, Irving is the best one available no way he slips.

The only way Irving slips to the Bulls is if he tears his ACL during workouts.

Kemba Walker IMO has the biggest risk of dropping, the guy has a ton of very good offensive tools but at 6'0 I just don't see him getting picked top 10.
Yeah, you are right. I just checked the mock draft, and Irving looks like he's a lock for the top three picks. I thought missing most of the season with an injury would drop his draft status, I was wrong.

I really don't want J.R Smith. I like Mayo but not for Taj.

Kyle Singler and Jereme Richmond are possibilities late in the draft but I really don't like Singler's NBA game or Richmonds attitude.

If for some crazy reason Jeremy Lamb from Ucon declares early and slips to the Bulls, I say they should jump on him ASAP. The kid is a 6'5 SG with a ridiculous wing span, hes got arms that should just not be on a guy his size, think Scottie Pippen freakish arms on a 6'5 frame. The kid can grow to be a truly great defensive player under Thibs.
Yeah, I definitely think that should be their strategy this off season. I've been thinking about this for some time now. It will be hard for any rookie, especially one from this draft and late in the draft, to get playing time with our group of players. JJ has talent but was a waisted pick for us because he couldn't get playing time and the Bulls' management will have to be excellent with their picks in the draft this year to get someone who can take someone elses spot. The key is to acquire assets, so I think drafting a player they can keep overseas to get playing time is crucial and maybe trading away the other pick for a future pick.

We will find out our weakness in the playoffs and management can address that with the MLE this off season. By acquring assets, like future picks and overseas players, the Bulls will have the opportunity to trade for someone who is that final piece like a Dwight Howard. Do we need someone that great to win? I don't know. Like I said, let's wait to see wht the playoffs tell us, but by hoarding assets, the Bulls at least have things that are attractive in getting someone like that.
