Sign Rodney Hood for wing depth

I have written about the Bulls possibly signing Rodney Hood in the past, and I still love the idea. I watched a lot of the Portland Trail Blazers’ playoff run this year, and Hood impressed me on multiple occasions.

He isn’t going to fill it up offensively, but has the ability to knock down open threes on the regular. Hood also gets to the basket, here and there, and either finishes or gets to the line.

As one of the better perimeter defenders in the league, Hood would offer the Bulls a lot as one of the key members of a new and improved “Bench Mob.” He is a true 3-and-D guy, which I believe Boylen is looking for. Chicago has to add depth this offseason, as they’re nearly depleted of capable players.

Hood would certainly help with the development of Chandler Hutchison, too. I don’t think Hutchison is one the Bulls can count on just yet, and Hood’s presence would push the young kid to get better.

Should the Bulls add Hood to Beverley and Gibson, their bench will have gotten exponentially better. Again, this is the perfect offseason we’re talking about. Will all of this happen? Who knows. I might just be a genius.
