The storyline for the Chicago Bulls this off-season has become out with the old bench and in with the new.
Man overboard! Splash!
That is the sound of members from the Bulls’ beloved “Bench Mob” being purged off the team. One by one, the Bulls’ supporting cast have been let go in a major overhaul. Omer Asik became the latest casualty to leave the Bulls when they decided against matching the Houston Rockets' three-year, $25 million offer for the “Turkish Hammer”.
Kyle Korver, C.J. Watson, Ronnie Brewer, John Lucas III and Mike James all preceded the “Turkish Hammer” out of the door.
Vladimir Radmanovic, Nazr Mohammad and Marco Belinelli join the returning Kirk Hinrich as free-agent additions.
