Should Bulls Upgrade Roster in Offseason?
(Derrick) Rose needs to get healthy. Duh. It can’t come soon enough. But one convincing argument this series made was the Bulls’ lack of a reliable second scorer. Wait, isn’t this how last season ended?
You can hope the Bulls amnesty (Carlos) Boozer and make Taj Gibson the starter. I doubt it will happen, but a man can dream. Injured or not, Gibson was a stud when the Bulls needed one. He turned Game 5 before suffering that gruesome-looking ankle injury and had a similar impact on Game 6 with 14 points, 5 rebounds, and 2 blocks.
(Richard) Hamilton showed a bit of what the Bulls needed — what the Bulls will need more of going forward — but the Bulls have to look at that position. He gave the Bulls 19 points and 8 rebounds in Game 6, but Hamilton hasn’t shown he can stay healthy or play consistently.
And please, address backup point guard, because that’s now a starting position without Rose to start next season.
