Chicago Bulls add Kyle Korver, Omer Asik to the Roster


“We are pleased to welcome Kyle to the Bulls.  He will be a great addition to our team and he will provide another dimension to our offense,” said Chicago Bulls General Manager Gar Forman today.

Korver (6-7, 212), a seven-year veteran of the NBA, spent the last two-plus seasons with the Utah Jazz. He broke into the league with the Philadelphia 76ers in 2003, where he played for four-plus seasons after being drafted in the second round of the 2003 NBA Draft (51st overall).

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.
