Bulls May Be Close Landing Their Two Guard


 Bulls May Be Close Landing Their Two Guard
33 topic by T.O.N.Y. - 12-07-2011, 10:58 AM - Boxden > BX SportsCenter





The Chicago Bulls need a two guard who can create his own shot to really round out their team (and take some pressure off Derrick Rose).

They may be close to landing the best two guard on the market right now — Jamal Crawford.

The Hawks spark plug off the bench is a free agent and has drawn interest from a lot of teams — the Nets, Hornets, Heat, Lakers, Mavs, Suns, Magic and Blazers — but the Bulls may be the most intriguing offer, reports CSNChicago.com.

They pass along a tweet from Steve Kyler of Hoopsworld saying Chicago is trying to do a sign-and-trade based around Ronnie Brewer. The Bulls are going to have to give up more than that but as CSN points out the fit is good.

A couple of things that Crawford brings to the table is his ability to create his own shot and he’s capable of knocking down a few three pointers a game. Those are both two key areas that the Bulls struggled at least season from the two-guard position.

Also from Hoopsworld, Alex Kennedy tweets the Magic want to get in on the sign-and-trade for Crawford deal. If course they do, although we’re not sure Crawford would be enough to convince Dwight Howard to stay. Not really sure that J.J. Re!! is enough to get a deal done.

Everyone seems to agree that if Crawford is signed as a straight free agent the Hornets are the front runners, although how a Chris Paul trade impacts that remains to be seen.

he is inept at defense. So im sure he is coming off the bench for Brewer, good pick up though.

Great pickup for them if it happens. I can envision him being their version of Boozer at the 2 though, as they're a defensive minded team and that's his biggest weakness.

Either do a sign and trade with Afflalo, or just get J. Rich and keep Brewer

He could def be a nice pickup if we use him the right way. I personally would set him as the 6th man.

In a perfect world get AA to start Crawford off the bench and get rid of C.J . Rose, AA, and Crawford rotation at the guard positions. Ain't gonna happen though.

If we get him, he better come off the bench. A sign and trade would be good for us, cuz we could still use the MLE on a starting SG. If our rookie Jimmy Butler pans out, Brewer is very expendable.

I would've liked to see OJ playing the 2 for the bulls, but Jcraw would be a very good pick-up

This right here. I'd rather have Afflalo than Crawford...

Crawford is overrated. Especially with this Bulls team with a PG who already demands the rock. He's a good bench player and that's IT. Not a team player.
