The Chicago Bulls continue to plan their 2014 off-season. The Bulls are believed to be targeting Carmelo Anthony as their top priority. In the event that the Bulls miss out on Anthony, then the team likely will be focused on improving the supporting cast for a returning Derrick Rose.
Rose is returning from his second major knee injury in as many years. Because of Rose’s recent injuries, the Bulls appear to be interested in improving the depth at the point guard position. Aggrey Sam of CSN Chicago reports that the Bulls have an interest in Dallas Mavericks’ point guard Devin Harris.
Whether that means the return of Augustin, bringing back veteran Kirk Hinrich, acquiring another backup in free agency—Mavericks point guard Devin Harris has been connected to the Bulls, according to a league source—or trying to surround Rose with talent that fits his game, the front office has options.
With the Mavericks this season, Harris averaged 7.9 points per game and 4.5 assists per game while playing 20 minutes per game.
Harris would certainly be a respectable veteran for the Bulls to add to their roster. Though, the Bulls should not forget about D.J. Augustin. Augustin is interested in returning to the Bulls next season and the team is believed to be interested in having the point guard back.
Therefore, Harris may be an option for the Bulls if Augustin prices himself out of the Bulls’ range.
