Bulls Trade Justin Holiday to Memphis for MarShon Brooks and Wayne Selden
The Bulls traded away Justin Holiday to the Memphis Grizzlies for two shooting guards, MarShon Brooks and Wayne Selden. Both players are on 1 year deals, so we aren’t stuck with them for any duration of time. We also get two 2nd round picks from Memphis, which is pretty much two G-League guys for the Windy City Bulls.
Holiday is currently operating on an expiring contract worth $4.38 million this season, whereas Brooks and Selden combine to make just north of $3 million total. While there could be some value in the future with a player like Selden, Chicago is likely targeting the picks as assets to build with moving forward and Holiday profiles as a potential two-way threat for a team in the Grizzlies angling for a playoff run.

MarShon Brooks is a 6′ 5″, 200 lbs shooting guard out of Providence. He’s 29 years old and a 4 year NBA vet. This season he’s averaged 6.6 PPG, 0.9 assists and 1.6 rebounds. He’s a career 8 PPG player.
Wayne Selden is a 6′ 5″, 230 lbs shooting guard out of Kansas. He’s 24 years old and a 2 year NBA veteran. This season he’s at 5.4 PPG, 1.1 assists, 1.4 rebounds and has a 7 point career average.
What kind of impact will these players have for the Bulls?
 
Should the Bulls be making any more trades?
With all the talk of taking on other team’s long-term bad deals, is it even worth considering trading guys on our team to take on the problems of others?
Marcus: I say we should just keep what we have left, get a fat bank account for next year and sign whoever we can in free agency. With Robin Lopez, Jabari Parker, Cam Payne, and Bobby Portis all with expiring deals, the only thing I would trade for at all would be first round draft picks. There are no players out there short of Klay Thompson or Anthony Davis that are worth picking up in a trade scenario.
 
Game Recaps:
This past week we had 3 games. One of them was a win, the Raptors game was close, and the Orlando game was a complete disaster.
Bulls vs Wizards: Bulls WIN 108-92
Wendell Carter Jr had 17 points, 12 rebounds and 2 assists
Bulls vs Raptors: Bulls LOST 95-89
Bulls vs Magic: Bulls LOST 112-84
The last 3 games was a good indicator of where the Chicago Bulls are as a collective unit.
While they haven’t had their core four (Lauri Markkanen, Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn, and Wendell Carter, Jr.) on the court together much this season, a deeper look into the numbers suggests it may not matter. The Bulls currently rank last in total points per game, 28th in free throws attempted, 27th in field goal percentage, and 25th in three-point field goal percentage.
They’re also attempting the second-fewest three-pointers in the league. The Bulls are also 27th in 2-point field goals attempted. So to recap, they’re not getting to the free throw line, they’re not shooting many three-pointers, nor are they shooting many two-pointers.
It looks like Jim Boylen wants to play more of a grind it out type of basketball. This worked well in the 1990s for the Pistons and Knicks,

Post Game Wrap-up on the Bulls Vs Minnesota Timberwolves
The Chicago Bulls LOST to the Timberwolves by 25 points – Timberwolves 119, Bulls 94.
Derrick Rose, Taj Gibson, Luol Deng and Thibs returned to the UC to cheers and fond reminders to the fans on how good we used to have it. At one point in the game with Rose on the free throw line, the UC erupted with M-V-P chants, bringing a visible smile to Derrick’s face.
In his post-game interview, Derrick said “I had to crack a smile a little bit. It made me reminisce about some of the old days. With the year that I’m having, it was very special to come in here and play. He also alluded to the fact that the future is never set in stone, and the possibility of him returning to Chicago is always in the cards in the future, at least in his mind.
As for the Bulls performance, Zach Lavine led all scorers with 28 points in 26 minutes.
Jabari Parker has recovered from his “illness” but was once again benched due to coach’s decision. It’s unlikely that we will ever see Jabari play in a Bulls uniform again.
In terms of Minnesota, Derrick Rose had 24 points in 38 minutes. KAT poured in 20 points and 20 rebounds in 24 minutes. Wiggins had 14, Taj had 16.
This coming week we have games against Washington, Toronto and Orlando. The Toronto game should be a bloodbath. The only game we have a real chance at would be Orlando, which it feels like we’re playing Orlando every other day lately. I’m kind of sick of seeing them.
Bulls Injury Updates:
Though Zach Lavine has made a comeback, he did look to be visibly limping throughout portions of the Minnesota game. We’ve heard no progress in terms of Bobby Portis and his ankle injury. Hopefully Bobby can come back soon and finish the second half of the season in strong form, netting him a fat contract with the Bulls so he can stay here and be productive with the Bulls.

Post Game Wrap-up on the Bulls Vs Brooklyn Nets

The Chicago Bulls LOST to the Brooklyn Nets – 96 to 93. With over 25 lead changes, this was a back and forth game with a lot of heart shown by Kris Dunn and the insurgence of Shaq Harrison, who showed a ton of hustle. Wendell Carter Jr displayed a preview of his future role as a star with several blocks and monstrous dunks. At about 2 minutes left in the 4th, we could see Bobby Portis limping into the locker room. Hopefully for Bobby’s sake, this is just a turned ankle and not anything to do with his previously injured knee. The game ended with a controversial call on Kris Dunn combined with some sloppy ball handling leading to a turnover that helped the Nets pull out the win, sealed by 2 free throws from former Bull Spencer Dinwiddie.
Bulls Injury Updates:
As we alluded to before, Zach Lavine will be out for another 2-4 weeks after he sprained his ankle vs Orlando while the Bulls were in Mexico City.  With Zach Lavine out of the lineup, it’s up to the rest of the guys to step up and take charge. Luckily no one else on the club is hurt, with the exception of Denzel Valentine, who is recovering from his own ankle injury and surgery.

STATE OF THE BULLS
It’s been a few weeks since we were able to get together to do a show, and what a few weeks it’s been! Fred Hoiberg is out and Asst. Coach Jim Boylen has assumed the reins of head coaching duty.
We all know about the drama that ensued since Boylen has assumed control and it showed a lot about this Bulls team and just how SOFT they really are. I know they are professionals, but trying to boycott practice and declare a mutiny is not a good showing in a city like Chicago that is filled with HARD WORKING people that are known for their perseverance and toughness. This is the kind of stunt that we’ve never seen in Chicago at this scale and it’s time to take a long hard look at this roster to see what we can do to get some winners to play for the Bulls. If you’re going to have the worst team in the league, don’t complain about how hard you work. Don’t proclaim how entitled you are as a player when you can’t even win but 25% of your games. I get that some guys were injured, but that’s absolutely no excuse for how the players are acting.
While it’s probably true that Fred Hoiberg was a “soft” coach, that’s not the kind of team we want or deserve as Chicago Bulls Fans. I would not mind if we kept Lauri,

Post Game Wrap-up on the Bulls Vs Phoenix
The Bulls took on Devin Booker, Deandre Ayton and the Phoenix Suns in a Wednesday night matchup. The Bulls WON the game with the score of 124-116.

Zach Lavine led all scorers with 29 points. He’s on a run to get that Most Improved Player award, and it looks like it’s his for the taking. Jabari Parker played a pretty decent game with 20 pts, 13 Rebounds and 8 assists, almost getting him into Triple Double territory.
All in all, a good win for the Bulls who have been on a losing streak lately. Most notable was the presence of DeAndre Ayton, who looks like he’ll grow into a very dominant center in the league after a few years of experience.
Bulls Injury Updates:
It was announced that Denzel Valentine will be out the rest of the season after he gets surgery later next week. He has been scheduled for a full ankle restoration surgery, which Denzel indicated is going to be just what the doctor ordered. He said he’s had ankle issues ever since entering the league, and it will be great to be 100% in the ankle department when he returns next season.
Hopefully Denzel heals up quick and can be back to playing form for the season opener.
Chandler Hutchison missed the Phoenix game due to back spasms, but it looks to be short-term and nothing that will keep him out of any games.
We’ve also got news that both Lauri Markkanen and Kris Dunn have been working out and hitting non-contact portions of practice. It looks like it will be another 2 weeks or so for both of them. There are rumblings that Lauri will be playing with the Windy City Bulls G-League team by late next week to get ready to make his comeback.
We’ll be lucky if Bobby Portis comes back by Christmas, as his injury has not healed as fast as Dunn’s has. I feel bad for Bobby, as it’s a contract year for him and this will mean he’s going to work much harder to get a good deal for next season, which is when you run a huge risk to re-injure yourself, or play in a reserved way so that you don’t injure yourself again. Either way, Bobby has a long uphill climb ahead of him.

Roundtable Discussion
TANK TIME?
So is it time to tank? I think Gar/Pax have probably been watching Duke basketball, as I have all season so far. In my opinion it’s time to submarine this team and hit the tank button. Once again we are in a post-season fight with the Cavs, but this time it’s to see who can suck the most and get the coveted #1 pick to grab RJ or Zio…

Post Game reaction to Bulls Vs. Boston Celtics:
Score: Bulls LOSE. Score 111-82
The Bulls held a 5-point lead after one quarter in Boston … then lost by 29. Bulls fall 111-82 to the Celtics. Their offense was pitiful, shooting 39% with 22 turnovers.
The Bulls are now 4-11 as of this recording. They’re 3 games back of the 8th seed. They’re 1.5 games back in the race for the NBA’s worst record. There are 67 games left to play.
Jabari Parker and Shaq Harrison led the way with 14 and 16 points respectively. Zach Lavine’s consecutive streak of 20 point games comes to an end at 15 games in the streak. Zach only put up 10 points against the Celtics.

Bulls Injury Updates:
Lauri Markkanen, Denzel Valentine, Kris Dunn and Bobby Portis have all been out with injuries. Where do they stand in their recovery so far?
LAURI:
Chicago Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg updated the status of second-year stretch forward Lauri Markkanen Monday and the news isn’t good for Bulls fans.
Lauri Markkanen suffered a high-grade lateral right elbow sprain during training camp. The Bulls initially said Markkanen would miss six-to-eight weeks. Hoiberg said Monday, though, that the Bulls will take the cautious approach to make sure Lauri is 100 percent, which means the Bulls’ young star is still two-to-three weeks away from playing, according to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune. But Fred recently said it will be 9-11 weeks before we see Lauri back. He was seen taking threes and even dunking with his injured arm, so who really knows when this will happen. It may happen sometime in December, or next year before we see him again.
 
KRIS:
It looks like the recovery of Kris Dunn is going according to plans. He injured his knee with a severe MCL sprain and was projected to be out for 4-6 weeks. It’s been 3 weeks, so it’s another 2-3 weeks before we’ll see him on the court again. With Archie and Shaq Harrison doing well in the lineup,

Where are we after 8 Games into the Schedule? Roundtable Discussion
With 8 games in the books and the Bulls having a 2-6 record, we’re officially 10% into the season. With a continuation of this trend, we’re projected to have just 20 wins this season. Right in line with what the Las Vegas experts predicted. We all got mad about that, but as the first sets of games have shown, it’s exactly what they thought it would be despite our own higher expectations as Bulls fans. Are we setting ourselves up for disappointment as the Bulls are tanking? Was this their plan the whole time? Is this just not Fred’s plan and he should be fired? All these questions and more are being thrown on the table for this roundtable discussion.

Bulls Podcast #14 – Cam Payne’s Coming Out

The Chicago Bulls Waive Omer Asik and sign PG Shaquille Harrison, Kris Dunn’s bruised MCL, Zach comes out strong but Questions Bulls Coaching and the Post Game Wrap-up on the Bulls vs. Charlotte.

Bulls Waive Omer Asik, Sign Shaq Harrison
The Bulls have waived health plagued Omer Asik to make room on the roster for more point guards. As it turns out, the Bulls are on the hook for at least $14 million to Asik. We acquired him in the Nikola Mirotic trade, and New Orleans absolutely got the better of that deal, as Niko is playing like an All-Star this year for the Pelicans.
After making salary room, the Bulls have brought in Shaquille Harrison who was waived from Phoenix. So now we have 2 point guards that were on the Phoenix roster last year. (Harrison and Ulis)
Last year Harrison played in 23 games averaging 6.6 PPG, 2.4 assists and 47.6% FG%. 
 
Zach Lavine is every bit the All-Star we thought he would be
Though the Bulls started out 0-3, it’s clear that Zach Lavine is going to be the face of the franchise this year. There’s really only one alpha, and it’s Zach.
Averaging over 30 points throughout his first 4 outings, he matched the starting performance of one other Bull has come out of the gate with 4 30 point games, Michael Jordan.
Zach raised some questions about the coaching calls
“We got to run the right sets out there. We would have run the right plays, got the ball to the right people I think we would have been alright. We were playing free (in the first half) and aggressive. We weren’t coming down and being stagnant. We weren’t calling a lot of plays” Asked how the Bulls are doing at recognizing who has the hot hand, LaVine didn’t hesitate. In fact, he repeated his answer. “I think we have to do better at it,” he said.

Post Game reaction to Bulls Vs. Charlotte Hornets:

Score: Bulls win 112-110
Cam Payne’s Coming out party
Cam Payne is making a believer out of the Bulls Fan base, shooting 7 for 11 in threes.
Zach is out there doing Zach things. Teams are starting to double-team Lavine, but there isn’t a second option to take advantage. Luckily he’s put up 30 points a game for the last 4 games.
WCJ can’t make a free throw
Where is Bobby Portis? Better yet, where’s Robin Lopez?
Now that the season has started, we’re counting on you, the listener to help fan the flames and help us spread the show to every Bulls fan you can find. There are a lot of big things we are doing over the course of the season, and we want you to be a big part of that, both as a Bulls fan, and a listener to the show. We’re here for you, and we know you’re here for us.
Until then, Thanks for listening everyone, Go Bulls!

We acquired him in the Nikola Mirotic trade, and New Orleans absolutely got the better of that deal, as Niko is playing like an All-Star this year for the Pelicans.
After making salary room, the Bulls have brought in Shaquille Harrison who was waived from Phoenix. So now we have 2 point guards that were on the Phoenix roster last year. (Harrison and Ulis)
Last year Harrison played in 23 games averaging 6.6 PPG, 2.4 assists and 47.6% FG%. 
 
Zach Lavine is every bit the All-Star we thought he would be
Though the Bulls started out 0-3, it’s clear that Zach Lavine is going to be the face of the franchise this year. There’s really only one alpha, and it’s Zach.
Averaging over 30 points throughout his first 4 outings, he matched the starting performance of one other Bull has come out of the gate with 4 30 point games, Michael Jordan.
Zach raised some questions about the coaching calls
“We got to run the right sets out there. We would have run the right plays, got the ball to the right people I think we would have been alright. We were playing free (in the first half) and aggressive. We weren’t coming down and being stagnant. We weren’t calling a lot of plays” Asked how the Bulls are doing at recognizing who has the hot hand, LaVine didn’t hesitate. In fact, he repeated his answer. “I think we have to do better at it,” he said.

Cam Payne’s Coming out party
Cam Payne is making a believer out of the Bulls Fan base, shooting 7 for 11 in threes.
Zach is out there doing Zach things. Teams are starting to double-team Lavine, but there isn’t a second option to take advantage. Luckily he’s put up 30 points a game for the last 4 games.
WCJ can’t make a free throw
Where is Bobby Portis? Better yet, where’s Robin Lopez?
