After a fast and furious start to the 2013 offseason, we have reached the point where everything has slowed down considerably and we can look back at how each NBA team improved or failed to improve for the 2013-14 season.
There will still be some player movement the rest of the summer, but likely nothing major enough to really make an impact on this offseason.
With that being said, let’s take a look division by division at how each team in the NBA fared this offseason.
Next up I hand out offseason grades to each Central Division team.
Rookies: F Erik Murphy, G Tony Snell
Free Agents: F Mike Dunleavy, C Nazr Mohammed (re-signed)
Free Agents: G Marco Belinelli, G Nate Robinson
Waived: G/F Richard Hamilton, F Malcolm Thomas
The Bulls didn’t do much this offseason, but the Mike Dunleavy signing is a very under rated one and the drafting of Tony Snell adds a very nice piece to the future.
But think about this. The Bulls biggest move is one they didn’t necessarily make in the offseason. Getting a former MVP back healthy in Derrick Rose is just like making a big blockbuster trade. The Bulls biggest problem last season was consistency on offense and it looks like they may have solved that.
Losing Robinson may hurt but he wouldn’t have had as big of a role with the return of Rose.
