3. Be smart in free agency

The Bulls aren’t going to be players for any big name free agent over the next few years. This means that the front office needs to be smart in how they approach free agency. Essentially, what the front office needs to do is use free agency to rebuild the Bulls bench.

An ideal NBA bench would consist of a perfect mix of both young players and veterans. In such a young locker room, what the Bulls need is a veteran who can come off the bench and play about15-20 minutes a night.

What this does is give the teams a valuable mentor for younger players while continuing to develop the rest of the team. As of right now, some projected free agents that would make sense for the Bulls to sign this summer include: Wilson Chandler, Danny Green, and Derrick Rose.

While Rose would probably end up starting, he’s still the perfect leader for a team that is searching for an identity right now and needs an experienced voice to step up and begin to play a major presence in the locker room.

The Bulls front office need to understand that having a good veteran presence in the locker room can do wonders for a team. While bringing in a star player in free agency may end up being a move that works in the short-term, by bringing in a veteran, the Bulls have a chance to have some long-lasting success.
