Devin Booker, Deandre Ayton, Tom Thibodeau discussed on BBQ Nation


Free agent this summer looking for a long term contract in the neighborhood of $20 million per season, and that's pretty rich. When you consider the numbers that he's put up so far in his career. I think the polls would like a point guard like that. But I don't think they're going to be in position to get into a bidding war, especially when you look at their cap situation, which is not Is not terrible, but it's not great either. Who could they then shine or bring in that situation? Well, I think that most of the guys that the fan base would be excited about would be high ticket items. You know, you could go for the Chris Paul type fixed like they had in Phoenix. Obviously, that's been one of the big stories in the playoffs, with the Sun's knocking off the Lakers. And sending them moment around one Chris Paul, coming in as a veteran was able to bring out the best in Devin Booker, DeAndre Ayton, the cow bridges and that entire roster and, you know, door of the Utah Jazz are moving on to the second round in the West. Mike Conley, their point guard is going to be a free agent. He could be a guy that might want to re enter the market and try to improve his financial situation. But you know he's in his mid thirties now, and I can't see the Bulls being a team that's going to break the bank and for a veteran like Conley, his first year contract, which started something close to $40 million Which means you have to get rid of a number of players on the roster to get to that number. I just think that it's going to be very difficult to add in a guy that is going to be that much better than Kobe White. Both stands. I'm sure we'll think about. Well, what about Derrick Rose? He's a free agent again. But I think it's kind of the been there done that with the Bulls organization and Plus he played so well for Tom Thibodeau. The Knicks have a mountain of cash space. I think the Knicks will do right by Derek and off from a very attractive contract this summer. What's your take on Jack Levin in his situation. I think that the Bulls will talk to his representatives and see if they can get that early extension done. The problem is because of salary cap rules, Zack would have to give them a hometown discount to take that extension and Some of the comments he's made, even though he loves Chicago. He loves the Bulls organization. He's made it clear that he expects to be paid whatever the market will bear, So my guess is that this is going to go into next summer. Zack will play out the last year of his contract, become an unrestricted free agent. And then the Bulls will have to, uh, you know, convince them that this is the best situation. Obviously, Since he's their own free agent, they can offer him an extra year and higher percentage races, which means the total financial package of the greater And if they make the playoffs next year, and Zach is happy with his experience. Hopefully it'll be a situation where you know he wants to stay in Chicago and players and you know the rest of his career here..
