The Chicago Bulls are coming off an impressive, but disappointing 2013-14 season at the same time. Although the team won 48 games and captured the fourth best record in the eastern conference, their postseason run was a short one, as they fell to the Washington Wizards in five games.
Based on their performance in the playoffs, the Bulls knew they had to improve their roster. Their primary target was Carmelo Anthony, who is one of the top scorers in the league. Unfortunately, Anthony decided to re-sign with the New York Knicks.
Another marquee name the Bulls attempted to make a late push for was Kevin Love. Again though, it seems they will come up short on that attempt, as recent reports have surfaced that the Cleveland Cavaliers are the only team the Timberwolves are talking with on a potential trade for the the talented power forward.
Yes, it would be easy to focus on the players the Bulls failed to acquire. But rather than go that route, let’s talk about the players the Bulls did add to the mix for the upcoming season.
That being said, here are my grades for the players that have been added to the roster.
