  1. Luke Kornet 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    For what it's worth, foul trouble doesn't appear to be an issue for this guy. He averaged only 2 in 32 minutes per game during his time in the G League.

    Are you down on Bender or high on Chriss?
  3. Nikola Mirotic 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Chicago Tribune: "It has been widely reported, including by the Tribune, that Mirotic would have to agree to a trade by virtue of the two-year deal with a team option he signed as a restricted free agent. That’s technically true — but only if the Bulls don’t pick up the second-year option before trading him. If the Bulls exercise the team option first, Mirotic no longer has veto power and can be traded anywhere that a deal is found. Thus, the Bulls are in the strong position of negotiating with teams with both options. They can dangle Mirotic as an expiring contract if that team doesn’t want the option exercised, although Mirotic would have to agree to be traded to that team in that case. Or they can shop him as a productive player on a manageable two-year, $27 million deal, with the Bulls picking up the option before the trade. In that case, that team also would get Bird rights on Mirotic when he becomes an unrestricted free agent in 2019." https://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/basketball/bulls/ct-spt-bulls-nikola-mirotic-trade-20171229-story,amp.html As a Bulls fan, I hope they keep him.
  4. Nikola Mirotic 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Niko's value continues to climb every game and he has a no-trade clause in his contract. In what world would he approve a trade? This isn't a situation where an aging vet is looking to play for a Champion. This is a young guy (and former ACB League MVP) trying to prove a city wrong for doubting him while rebuilding his market value for his next contract negotiation, whether it's this summer or next. He's not going anywhere. Enjoy the ride.
  5. Jonathon Isaac 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    In his last 5 games, Isaac was averaging only 1.6 fouls per 36 minutes. I like dat.
  6. Valentine, W.Johnson or Isaac?

    AC question, but in my opinion the answer is Isaac and it isn't close.
  7. Markelle Fultz 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Draft Express compared his game to Harden, Wade, Roy and Russell, while pointing out that his assist to turnover ratio, finishing at the rim %, and three point % was the best in the group.
  8. Markelle Fultz 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    How could anyone "really know" what he'll be like when he comes back? What we do know is he was the #1 pick in a LOADED draft class. The rest is up to you.
  9. John Collins 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    30 makes on his last 36 attempts.

    Will Help In Return
  11. Markelle Fultz 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    BUY LOW. This rookie class is absolutely loaded and Fultz may be the best of them them all. We have not seen a large enough sample size to convince me otherwise and there may never be an opportunity to buy this low again.
  12. Markelle Fultz 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    He's puttin up jumpers today... ... left handed.
  13. Donovan Mitchell 2017-18 Season Outlook

    For what it's worth, in the Dennis Smith Jr thread, Trade Monster stated he dropped DSJ for Donovan Mitchell. I couldn't figure out what SSH stood for, but it appears to be a typo.
