CTL: Could Bulls be a contender when Rose returns?
Let's talk about Carlos Boozer. Two years left 31 million after this season Spacey playing better than you expected him to players -- doing what you pretty much study would do. I think he's only played slightly better than me as the first two years on like one of the few people in Chicago thinks girls who's who's been okay since he's been here I mean somebody else's score. If you if you look at his numbers particularly with him only playing thirty minutes a night in -- average over fifteen points -- close at ten rebounds -- -- and in -- guys that. Easy to do I know he's got defensive issues somebody's got to score particularly gotten there though he's played obviously very well lately was 63 double doubles but. First two years I mean I know we had a fourth playoff series against Miami so we don't want lots -- double doubles in the conference finals for the first season in the regular season he's been fine. Offensively okay we're really talking with Rick do you care about them try to make a move you don't see any. Moves of any kind happening. Going out to dinner or Derek -- and -- -- you know they're not -- move moves add money sort of test augment its going to happen. -- the -- I for the most part I think they're gonna stand pat. Funny I composites -- Trading rip Hamilton. To move themselves and well I mean they like grip but if somebody were awful a decent player for -- that makes less money and it's within 15%. Of those -- to make a trade work. You know they -- probably do -- -- unit luxury tax for the now looking to move so I think they'll they'll be pretty much the same routes and every now. Okay moving to let -- you Chris said that he does not believe Derrick no matter how good he's feeling. Gets back before the trade deadline which is mid February to you in lockstep with that you don't look at his with the organization has said consistently throughout this process -- they're -- there on the side of caution and be conservative if you're us I mean. Dirk is doing very very well and I mean I'm just speculating here my guess is that he could be cleared cleared medically. If they wanted to at some point this month I'm gonna suggest and -- reporting that. My guess is that you'll you'll go in the next -- will be full contact practice I'm sure will be -- that. So my point is like he could try to clear sleeve this month but they're not gonna let him play games this month because they've been very consistent same. They are going to be conservative on this so. But I've I've been saying all along way so we're really early march and that suggests that I can remaining. So if his doctors came a doctor Cole says. Two gar and pax. You guys play when you what he's good to go they're just going to. I know he's clear but we're just gonna give that extra month well I mean. Again I'm just speculated it could use Monday as they did not take a full contact in practice he's not scrimmage and so. You know look there's a lot of people problems processors -- Rose started out in California that have been part of the trio processors doctor Brian -- Bulls in position. Hitters terrorist camp his agent his family his brother's. There's -- Bulls management there's Jerry Reinsdorf. Who probably has one of you know most important votes and you said he's not gonna want the guy come back and Phillies. Convinced he's a 100% for a long period of time to three quarters golden -- going to be the face your franchise and expect you please. It doesn't make any sense suspect right now until he's 1000%. Healthy it's.
