Chicago Bulls: Sign Hasheem Thabeet

Chicago Bulls: Sign Hasheem Thabeet
By Mike Elworth: Owner and Publisher/Hoopstuff…
The Oklahoma City Thunder traded Hasheem Thabeet to the Philadelphia 76ers for well basically zilch, however the 76ers then waived him, so he is a free agent and is an excellent fit for the Chicago Bulls, who should sign him. He would fill their biggest and only need on the roster and since they have a couple of roster spots, one should be filled by Thabeet.
The Bulls have one of the best rosters in the NBA and are one of just a few teams that can win a title, but only if they are healthy. Their roster is deep and excellent, but they are missing one thing, a reserve defensive center. The Bulls have one of the best big man rotations in the NBA with Joakim Noah, Pau Gasol, Nikola Mirotic and Taj Gibson, but it seems that their 2nd center is 1st string power forward Pau Gasol, which isn’t a problem and there really isn’t a reason to play a 5th big man too many minutes, but it would be nice for them to h…

Doc Rivers is staying with the Los Angeles Clippers for another five years. In Steve Ballmer’s first big move since taking over as the new owner, he gave Rivers a contract extension through the 2018-19 season. Rivers was a stabilizing force for the franchise during the upheaval created by former owner Donald Sterling’s racist remarks that led to his ouster after 33 years of ownership. ”Not only is Doc one of the best coaches and executives in the game, but he continually embodies the hardcore, committed and resilient character and winning culture that the Clippers represent,” Ballmer said, repeating the ”hardcore” theme he uttered during last week’s fan rally.

Los Angeles Lakers: 3 Players To Sign Next Offseason

Los Angeles Lakers: 3 Players To Sign Next Offseason
By Mike Elworth: Owner and Publisher/Hoopstuff…
The Los Angeles Lakers will have about 25 million in cap space if they decline Jordan Hill’s 9 million dollar player option next offseason, enough money to sign 2 elite players or just 1 elite player and 2 excellent secondary players. They missed on the big free agents this offseason, but they kept cap space for next offseason, which was wise. With 25 million or more in cap space they have the chance to make themselves a very strong playoff team in the Western Conference and with Kobe Bryant’s 25 million dollars coming off their books in 2 offseasons, if they re-sign Kobe to a more appropriate contract or he retires, they could sign another 10+ million dollar per season player. Here are the 3 players they should try to sign next offseason. This is hypothetical, but this would be the perfect offseason for them.
Brook Lopez
- Lopez has a player option next offseason and as he is one of…
