With the Bulls last in the league in points per game, and exposed in the playoffs for their lack of scoring, here are five off-season moves to improve the team before the start of the 2014-15 NBA season.

Although the Chicago Bulls were one of the best teams in the league on defense, they were also last in the league on offense. They need to find a way to add some new shooters and scorers during free agency. Ramon Sessions would be a nice addition, and someone such as Lance Stephenson has the ability to get to the basket and get easy shots on offense.

Augustin may want a multi-year deal in order to return to Chicago. However, with the return of veteran Kirk Hinrich in question, Augustin would be a solid backup to Derrick Rose in the 2014-15 season. Augustin has already become a fan-favorite since being signed by the Bulls in December, and his 16 points per game off of the bench gave the team new life this season.

3. Re-sign Jimmer Fredette

Although Fredette didn't play much during his first season with the Bulls, the three-point threat out of BYU is the ideal player to be paired in the backcourt with Derrick Rose. Fredette can catch and shoot, create off the dribble, and find open shooters. The Bulls should make Fredette a priority just on the simple fact that they could use as much scoring as they can get.

2. Amnesty Carlos Boozer

Carlos Boozer has one year remaining on his contract, but the Bulls can amnesty 11-year forward in order to get his salary off of the books. With Boozer gone, the Bulls could try to sign a plethora of free agents, or finally sign European center Nikola Mirotic -- considered to be one of the best overseas players at the moment.

1. Sign Carmelo Anthony

With the Bulls last in the league in scoring, signing Carmelo Anthony would undoubtably fix that problem. And if Derrick Rose can finally stay healthy during the 2014-15 season, they shouldn't have a problem putting the ball in the basket with those two players in the mix. Anthony would also be the perfect player to take some of the pressure off of Rose who will be joining the Bulls after suffering two consecutive season-ending injuries.
