The Chicago Bulls have many decisions looming this summer. They have many key players this last season who will be free agents and a possible amnesty of Carlos Boozer on the horizon. Keeping this in mind, these are the five players who the Bulls can either keep or let walk.
The Bulls will owe Carlos Boozer $ 16.8 million next season if he isn't amnestied or traded. If the Bulls were to amnesty Boozer, it would allow them to add cap space and finally rid themselves of a player who has underachieved since he arrived in Chicago. Boozer has played his last game as a Bull.
Like many guards who have resurrected their careers with the Bulls, such as Kyle Korver, C.J. Watson and Marco Belinelli, the Bulls wont be able to hold onto Augustin either. Although Augustin says he wants to stay in Chicago, he has likely played his way into a major payday and the Bulls won't be able to keep him unless he takes a pay cut.
The Bulls' signing of Fredette last season seemed to be a test run for the future. There is no doubt Fredette can fill it up, but he didn't receive any playing time under Tom Thibodeau. The Bulls desperately need scorers and Fredette fills that need.
Hinrich is in his second stint with the Bulls and wants to end his career in Chicago and will likely take a hometown discount in order to do so. Look for Hinrich to be back as a bull.
There have been rumors that Mohammed has been mulling retirement, but if he does return, it won't be with the Bulls. Mohammed didn't play much this season and it is likely the Bulls will look to add a younger, more serviceable backup to Joakim Noah.
