The Chicago Bulls still have a few roster spots to fill, and on Thursday they made a major move in regards to addressing their need for depth at the guard position. It was announced today that the team acquired the signed-and-traded contract of guard C.J. Watson from the Golden State Warriors in exchange for a future second-round draft choice.  Golden State will be receiving the lesser of Phoenix’s and Utah’s regular 2011 second-round draft choices, both of which are held by the Bulls.

Chicago Bulls sign Kyle Korver, Offer Sheet to J.J. Redick

On the same exact day (well night actually) that the Chicago Bulls formally introduced Carlos Boozer to the Chicago community, (and a day after officially losing out on the Lebron sweepstakes) the front office made a couple more moves. And they were the perfect supplemental moves towards addressing their team needs. Boozer filled their glaring need for a back-to-the-basket scorer, and someone who can add more of an offensive presence to the post.

Next they were desperate for a real perimeter scorer to the play the two and spread the defenses that will be geared towards stopping the Derrick Rose led drive-and-kick game.

They found him in Kyle Korver, and they may have found help in J.J. Redick.
