* Mazique, Forbes: "Unfortunately, the Bulls are in a position where they must build through the draft because the team has been unable to sign major free agents since Michael Jordan left. Year after year, the Bulls have had money to spend, but have struck out when trying to woo the best players.

"Wade (back in 2010), LeBron James, Chris Bosh, [Carmelo] Anthony, Tracy McGrady, Grant Hill, Tim Duncan were all free-agent targets at one time or another, but the Bulls haven't been able to get the best players in their prime. Instead, the Bulls have signed guys past their prime like Pau Gasol in 2014, Wade this past offseason, Ben Wallace in 2006 and Carlos Boozer in 2010 after being rejected by Wade, James and Bosh . . .

"If I were a free agent and was if I wanted to be a Knick or a Bull, I'd ask: What are my other options?"
