Whether or not the Chicago Bulls find a way to either trade power forward Carlos Boozer, use the amnesty clause to waive him or keep him for another season, they have to find a way to improve their offense. Scoring, often in key situations, has been big problem for the Bulls in recent years.
Joe Cowley of The Chicago Sun Times believes Dallas Mavericks’ forward Shawn Marion could be a target of the Bulls in free agency.
WHAT’S OUT THERE
With LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Bosh among the players who can opt out of their deals to become free agents, this summer has drama written all over it. Then add in the possible trade sweepstakes for power forward Kevin Love, and it will be a significant offseason for general manager Gar Forman and vice president of basketball operations John Paxson. The Bulls also will be looking to bring highly coveted Nikola Mirotic over from the Spanish league.
POSSIBLE TARGETS: The Bulls will try to go big. If it doesn’t happen, they could use the money from Boozer’s contract to add depth with a player such as Shawn Marion or Paul Pierce.
Marion, 36, averaged 10.4 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.2 steals per game this season.
