The projected cap next season will be around $58 million and the Bulls currently have $63 million dollars in guaranteed salary (according to Sham Sports). That's not necessarily a problem, but the luxury tax will be around $70 million and the Bulls ...

Nuggets Hand The Bulls Their Worst Loss Of The Season

  The Bulls got off to a fast start tonight, jumping out to an 8-0 lead two minutes into the first quarter. It was all downhill from there. Aside from the first couple of minutes, the Bulls were bad, plain and simple. The Denver Nuggets came into the United Center and handed Chicago a 108-91 beat down, their most lopsided loss of the season. The Bulls played without Derrick Rose for the seventh consecu ...

C.J. Watson Is Not an Option for Shooting Guard

One of the more perplexing rumors to come out of the Chicago Bulls offseason originated from Chicago Tribune report K.C. Johnson who wrote that guard C.J. Watsonmay be an option at shooting guard. Don't get me wrong. I think Watson is a fine backup point guard, but a starting shooting guard on a team looking to win an NBA championship he is not. Watson, in his first year with the Bulls after three seasons w ...

C.J. Watson, can he be the X factor?

One of the Bulls first moves in free agency was to shore up their three point shooting with the signing of Kyle Korver.   However, Korver isn't likely a 30 minute a night player, especially with Luol Deng playing so many minutes at SF.   They then tried to sign J.J.
