By my count, the Bulls are 12 players deep and looking to put the finishing touches on what is arguably their best roster in the last 15 years. The most recent addition became official on July 22nd when the Bulls signed point guard Aaron Brooks to a one-year, approximately $1 million contract. The Bulls inked a deal with rookie, Cameron Bairstow after a solid performance in the NBA Summer League. As anticipated, the Bulls also signed small forward, Doug McDermott to a multi-year deal. Joakim Noah #fingerguns Returning from last year’s Bulls squad will be Tony Snell, Taj Gibson, Joakim Noah, Mike Dunleavy, Jimmy Butler, Kirk Hinrich, and of course Derrick Rose. To further fill out the roster, the Bulls have their summer acquisitions, Euro League star, Nikola Mirotic and two-time NBA Champion, Pau Gasol. As for the last three spots on the 2014 roster, the Bulls will probably sign a combination of relatively inexpensive veteran players, journeymen role players, or younger players who will contribute energy and scoring; possibly Shawn Marion, Elton Brand, Emeka Okafor, or Jordan Crawford. The Bulls’ biggest need this offseason was more offensive weapons. Gasol, Mirotic, McDermott, and Aaron Brooks are definitely capable of putting points on the board. McDermott is a proven scoring talent from many places on the court and Mirotic has the quickness and length to score in many ways but I may be most excited about the potential contributions of Aaron Brooks. Brooks is a smart and efficient player. He’s played well in both Houston and in Denver. To be a starting point guard on a playoff team in the western conference is no easy task. I’m still surprised he was willing to be third on the depth chart for the Bulls considering he could probably be starting for another team in the NBA.
