Re: Bulls offseason

If you don't sell Rondo as an expiring by taking on a longer term contract, you could easily be looking at 50m+ in 2018 cap space without even getting rid of Lopez (or worthless bit pieces like Payne). Eta - that would be with a max of anywhere from 24 to 36 depending on where the cap falls and the...

Re: Bulls offseason

I think you've got to keep Wade for a while anyway. If he's not too pissed anyway, over Jimmy getting dealt. They need some semblance of a vet that can help teach, on some level. Granted, it could be Rondo, but with the PG's on the roster, I think he's gone. I think you try and take back a horsefeat...

Re: 2017 Actual MLB Draft Day(s) Thread



Wow, the money here really surprises me. 1) He was ranked top 50ish or so and 2) He's a Boras client.

For him to fall to the 5th, with that type of figure is surprising. It'll be very interesting to see Estrada's number.

Re: Bulls offseason



Well, at least we know Boston wasn't offering much.

And not that I like being on their side very often, Haugh and Bernstein are both defending the direction.

Re: Bulls offseason

That was not the alternative though, and I'm not quite sure why you, and people like David Haugh, are ignoring that fact. Choosing to rebuild is a viable game plan, but having the strategy in place does you no good when the tactics taken to get to your goal are poorly done. If you want a rebuild, y...

Re: Bulls offseason

I've just been dead set on getting the rebuild started. It truly doesn't bother me that the alternative to what happened, was watching another .500ish team slug thru another season.

Re: Bulls offseason

How bad are we currently? Over/Under 25 wins? Figure we'll bring back Mirotic. And I guess we'll use Rondo to bring in a bad contract guy, with something attached.

Re: Bulls offseason

Paxson said their job is to rebuild through the draft, which should've been followed by 50 questions in a row about why they traded away a horsefeathering first round pick today Unfortunately, they answered that indirectly, when they said Reinsdorf was with them every step of the way. I think their...

Re: Bulls offseason

Selling the pick shows they aren't even committed to rebuilding. I'm guessing we'll hear some sort of comment from them. But that's just horsefeathering pitiful. My guess is they'll add some guys and wind up retooling. Now that'd piss me off, because we downgraded from Jimmy. I honestly thought by t...

Re: Bulls offseason

Jimmy is a top 10-15 player in the league, one of the 5 or so best players to ever put on a Bulls uniform, and the best Bull since MJ and Pippen. Our sorry ass front office, who you admit is terrible and needs to go, just traded him for a pile of flaming garbage, and your like "cool guess we o...

Re: Bulls offseason

They'll probably go out and add horsefeathers in FA that puts us in the 10-15 range next year. Selling Bell is so horsefeathering dumb.

Re: Bulls offseason

I'm hopeful they don't have that type of leash. If LaVine and Dunn don't work out, I'd say they're in trouble.

Re: Bulls offseason

I HAD liked Dunn. Its not inconceivable he's able to turn into a solid point. Solid backup point? Obviously, that's more likely than anything more than that, at this point. But, I thought he had star capability last year before the draft. Nothing to do but hope he bounces back after a horsefeathers...

Re: Bulls offseason
