    They have a plethora of mediocre guards whom I'm sure they'd be glad to dump for Rip. Ronnie Brewer, Kyle Korver etc. It would have to be a multiple team trade as they don't have anything that both we would want and they would like to give up.

    I think the Bulls rumors were IF Hamilton got traded to the Cavs and then bought out. I don't think they are willing to trade for him at his current contract.

    I can't believe we've gone from arguing whether Stuckey is the best player on the team to whether he is or is not the biggest cancer on the team.

    We would have to get a third team involved that has a burning need for mediocre guards.

    At this point he may be both. But I still don't want him.

    That's a good start. I also think stuckey will need at least 8 million a year for 5 years before his shot starts to fall.

    It looked like that jumper really knocked the wind out of The Franchise.

    I hope another team offers Stuckey SOMETHING so we don't bring him back.
    The draft would seem to indicate that Joe feels the same way....

    It is kind of funny that in years past we always complained about being a "jump shooting" team. Now we are complaining that one of our best one on one players and the player that draws the most fouls on the opposition doesn't shoot enough jump shots???

    As the point guard he wasn't asked to shoot and up until this year he didn't concentrate on it. After the transition to the 2; he took more three pointers then I can remember and started knocking down mid-rangers and pull ups more consistently.

    IF we can get the roles defined on this team we will be able to be more critical of each and every player. Looking at last year you couldn't guarantee who was going to play from game to game; let alone what position they were going to play!!

    I hope that's what the draft meant but Joe did extend the qualifying offer

    DD, I'm not advocating turning Stuckey into a Kyle Korver type shooter. The problem is because he lacks the credibility to shoot jumpers, opposing defenses simply wait for him to drive and then crowd the lane. He can still finish and draw fouls which is great. However, he does get banged up and it is hard work throwing your body at the opposing big men for 32-35 minutes every night. If he were to be just as dangerous from range, then the opposing teams couldn't just dare him to shoot. They'll have to make a choice of covering him up close, which would open the driving lanes, or leave him open to hit the shot.

    He can truly become a much more dangerous player if he develops an outside shot. This is purely something that he can work on his own. So, the fact that he hasn't shown much progress with his jump shooting is nobody's fault but his. And frankly, talking about unfavorable circumstances about being the cause of an NBA player's inability to improve his shooting is simply making excuses.

    Stuckey is a single threat.

    Since the Bulls are badly in need of a shooting guard and since they can't afford Afflalo, I wonder if they are going to put in a bid for Stuckey.

    He'd be a pretty good fit for them (i.e. can score and defend the perimeter).
