You’re Jerry Reinsdorf and Gar Forman, WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

The Bulls season ended last night, and while I’ll have a post up on the season later today, right now I was interested in getting your thoughts. We all know everything Bulls fans want the team to do this winter, but what if they can only do one thing?

What’s more important to you: getting Carmelo or amnestying Boozer? A healthy Derrick Rose, or Nikola Mirotic?

So if the Bulls were allowed to do only one thing this summer — hey, maybe Adam Silver will go mad with power after banning Donald Sterling — what would you do?

Kevin Love Longs For The Big City

LeBron James was never planning on coming to Chicago this summer. Now that Phil Jackson is running the Knicks, the odds of Carmelo Anthony leaving the Big Apple for the Windy City are slimmer than ever before.

Which means that Bulls fans need a new white whale, because ever since Michael Jordan left for good, and took Scottie and Phil with him, that’s what Bulls fans have done. They’ve looked longingly at the horizon over Lake Michigan hoping for a new superstar to appear.

Those Around Nikola Mirotic Think He’ll Be A Bull Next Season

LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony will be the big prizes after the NBA season, but odds are neither will be the big acquisition the Bulls make during the offseason. Instead the biggest “free agent” the Bulls go after will likely be the one they got in a draft day trade back in 2011: Nikola Mirotic.

Yes, after three years of playing well in Europe for Real Madrid, there are signs that this summer could be the summer Mirotic finally crosses the Atlantic to give the NBA a try. Though his salary wouldn’t be the only cost to the Bulls.

I had high hopes for Dayan Viciedo when the White Sox signed him out of Cuba. He was one of those signings that was not only hyped, but also seemed capable of living up to it when he got here.

When he first came to Chicago in 2010 he only played in 38 games, but put up a line of .308/.321/.519 with an OPS+ of 122. Surely he’d become a mainstay in the middle of the Sox order for years to come. I mean, Hawk Harrelson said he hadn’t seen anybody with a livelier bat since Carlos Delgado, and Hawk has never been one for hyperbole!
