Point Guard Malcolm Brogdon

I have written extensively about Milwaukee Bucks impending free agent Malcolm Brogdon recently, and I firmly believe it would be a mistake for the Bulls to sign him now that they have drafted Coby White. It does not make a lot of sense for Chicago to go out and spend the money on a player like Brogdon, especially if they invested the no. 7 overall pick in a kid like White.

One of the rumors floating around out there is that Brogdon could receive a hefty offer from the Bulls; a 4-year, $80 million contract to be exact.

In what world does it make sense to sign a point guard to that kind of contract just days after drafting (what you hope to be) the future of the position in White?

It doesn’t. It doesn’t make sense.

Brogdon may have a bright future (should he stay healthy), and he will make some team very happy. For the Bulls’ sake, I’m hoping it’s not them. If they wanted to bring him in on just a 2-year deal, then maybe I could find it within myself to support that. However, a 4-year contract? Absolutely not.
