They couldn’t land Dwyane Wade, Joe Johnson or even J.J. Redick, but the Bulls have finally filled their gaping hole at the shooting guard position.
According to ESPNChicago’s Nick Friedell: “The Chicago Bulls agreed to a deal with unrestricted free-agent shooting guard Ronnie Brewer, according to a source familiar with the situation. It’s a three-year deal worth $12.5 million, although the third year is not guaranteed.”
Well, that’s that, I guess. Now the Bulls just need get some depth at the point, shooting guard and center (coughBradMillercough). And, honestly, they need another long-range shooter (Eddie House, anyone?). Good teams need more than one three-point threat.
I’m reasonably happy with the Brewer acquisition, and management didn’t have to break the bank to get him, which is good. But I won’t pretend to feel super confident about starting a two guard who has never been able to shoot threes. But who knows. Maybe Ronnie has been practicing this summer.
