The Bulls didn't manage to nab Carmelo Anthony this past weekend, but their free agency plan did come together quite nicely:
-- Two-time NBA champion Pau Gasol agreed to a reported three-year, $22 million deal. Gasol is expected to replace Carlos Boozer, who should be amnestied later this week, and will give the Bulls another scorer inside.
-- The Bulls traded for Nikola Mirotic in 2011, and they'll finally get to see what the 23-year-old can do as he agreed to a reported three-year, $17 million deal. A "stretch-four," Mirotic will give the Bulls necessary outside shooting as well as depth behind Taj Gibson and wing position.
-- Kirk Hinrich returned to the Bulls on a reported two-year, $5.6 million room exception that will have him back up Derrick Rose at the point.
While the Bulls still need to shore up their roster, their Plan B post-Carmelo news has worked out quite nicely, as we break down in The Rundown.
