We will have a ton of money with the cap exploding and Noah and then Rose coming off the books. I just don't have much confidence in the FO's ability to get that star to come here. I'd really like to take a shot on Cousins, but I don't think we have enough to make a trade.
The problem with the cap exploding is that many teams will have a ton of money and the Bulls have always lost out in those scenarios. Also I'm not sure exactly how this works but I believe that with the cap exploding the cost of a max contract explodes as well. We might have enough for a max guy but possibly not much else. And yes the 3 star method has been a successful model in the past but one of those stars has to be a top 10 guy. Curry, LeBron, Dirk, Kobe, Garnett, Wade. The exception was SA (Leonard wasn't at top 10 level at this point and might be now) but they have the best coach in the league. The Bulls don't have that and it will be difficult for them to find that guy in the draft or FA.
True. Hopefully our luck turns around and we get one to come here to play with Jimmy.
