At this period of the NBA season, there’s not any breaking news or really any big news at all for the Chicago Bulls, so I wanted to try something fun.

So it’s at that point of the NBA season where nothing is really happening. Free agency and Summer League are done, so we essentially have no new basketball or Chicago Bulls news until preseason in September.

Instead of not posting or anything like that, I thought it would be pretty fun to analyze the players we have on our roster and predict their stat line. This is predicated on our roster not changing at all this season, which is pretty unreasonable to ask, I know, but bear with me.

For each player, I’m going to give my opinion about that player and what they need to do to help the team and then predict their production. If I think they’ll be traded or benched or moved up the lineup, I’ll explain that for each player.

For this post, I will analyze the players coming off the bench except the sixth man. For the sixth man and the Starters, I’m going to write a different post to analyze them more in depth. I do believe that at the start of the season, Chicago Bulls head coach Jim Boylen will employ an 11 man rotation, so in this post I’m going to discuss 5 players.

So lets get it started!
