Two of the biggest Adidas endorsers in the NBA, Derrick Rose and Dwight Howard are looking to be teammates next NBA season as the Bulls are looking to acquire the most dominating big man in the NBA right now, Dwight Howard. Howard is only one of the many superstars who will become officially free agents by the end of this season. Some of the other stars who will be declared free agents are Tim Duncan and Chris Paul. Right now, Chicago is chasing Howard. They saw that they need a dominant big man who can guard the rim and who can also score and rebound a lot because Chris Bosh and Joel Anthony just ate them alive. Thus, their eyes are on Howard. He's the ideal big man for them. Howard can muster 30 to 40 points per game while at the same time grabbing 20 to 30 plus rebounds per contest. They believe that he's the key for them to become legit contenders next season. Taj Gibson and Omer Asik will also have their chance. One of them can be the starting power forward of the Bulls next season.
Soon after they were eliminated by the Miami Heat, they quickly made some life changing moves. They immediately informed Joakim Noah and Carlos Boozer that they might be traded to the Magic in exchange for Dwight Howard. Those two are solid players who can defend and provide versatility on any team's front line. I just can't tell if the Magic will accept them. But for sure, they can really be effective defenders and hustle players for the Magic. Howard, I believe, can make a significant difference when he's with Derrick Rose. If Howard can rebound the ball well, he can just make a quick outlet pass to the streaking Derrick Rose for a free 2-handed dunk all day all night. I just can't wait for that to happen.
Here's a part and parcel of the whole Chicago Bulls story on how they badly want to get Howard. I got this from Bleacherreport.com.
"ESPN‘s Mike Wilbon mentioned that Chicago is already looking to acquire Howard on Friday’s episode of PTI (podcast link starts at 15:35). The Bulls have a lot of pieces to entice the Magic in a trade, but it could be all for naught if Orlando has its mind set on keeping Howard. Especially with the uncertainty surrounding the new CBA, the Bulls are getting into themselves into a long process of negotiations, similar to the Melodrama the Knicks endured last season. It’s a dream, but give the Bulls credit for chasing it."
