That just happened. Ben Gordon and Charlie Villanueva have signed deals with the Detroit Pistons, according to the Detroit Free Press.
“While teams can’t publicly comment on free agents until July 8 — the first day players can sign — the Gordon deal is believed to be worth $55 million over five years and Villanueva’s is thought to be worth $35 million over five years.”
So Gordon is gone. The Bulls didn’t draft a replacement for him and there isn’t a lot of quality available in free agency. As of right now it looks like the Bulls will go with a three guard rotation of Rose, Hinrich and Salmons.
The Bulls will definitely have more size next year. And in adding Gordon and Villanueva, the Pistons just got a lot worse defensively.
