Gordon reached a verbal agreement with Pistons today. They completely wasted the opportunity to pick up some shooting and scoring with the 26th pick in the draft. They could have drafted a variety of players including Ellington instead of Taj Gibson who will not be in the rotation. How will Bulls pick up 20 points per game and their only clutch shooter?
Will now turn into an allstar calliber player. Deng needs to play. The Bulls lost a scorer, they will survive though.
Deng will be healthy & start at the 3. Salmons can move to the 2. Kirk off the bench. Rose will have to be more aggressive scoring the basketball.
Salmons has showed that he can score. Rose took it to Rondo, one of the best defensive point guards in the game, in the playoffs at will. If Rose can knock down that 15-18 footer consistently then he will be huge this year offensively.
With all that said, Ben Gordon is pretty clutch in the 4th quarter. It will be hard to replace that aspect of his game.
