Bulls might look to amnesty Boozer after re-signing Gibson
 
Quote:

The Chicago Bulls allowed Omer Asik to sign with the Houston Rockets last offseason, which increased the odds of the team signing Taj Gibson to an extension.

Sources say the most likely outcome for the Bulls will be to sign Gibson to an extension and eventually using the amnesty clause on Carlos Boozer in the future.

Gibson is already 27, as he entered the NBA at a relatively old age.

they need to use amnesty else they're in lux tax territory
and Bulls never paid lux tax, especially not in tank year

I thought they had used that already...I would've been amnesty Boozer's contract...

Nets.

Boozer can maximize his skills when he plays with Deron W.

Then, Nets can amnesty Humphries :)

PF, it's just such an easy position to fill..... Probably the worst position to overpay for guys that don't bring anything special to the table.

Yup u don't win championships often with PF's being the focal point.

Just ask Malon, Barkley, Kemp, Brand & Bosh, Garnett before they went to a team with other stars.

I don't think Bosh and Brand should be there and arguably Kemp. Garnett is/could carry a team though - not to the promised land but carry a team as he was a beast on the glass, offensively and defensively. Very rare that a PF can do all 3 quite well. Some would argue Duncan is a PF but he's more of a C.
