Report: Bulls seriously considering forward JaMychal Green

The Chicago Bulls are seemingly entering a rebuilding period. They have been active this offseason, mostly through trading All-Star swingman Jimmy Butler and waiving veteran guard Rajon Rondo.

The Bulls will rebuild around young players they received from the Minnesota Timberwolves for Butler, and the young studs already on the roster such as forward Bobby Portis. However, there is never enough talent, and the Bulls have the cap space to add pretty much anyone.

According to Sean Deveney of Sporting News, the Bulls have their sights set on Memphis Grizzlies forward JaMychal Green. Green is a three-year veteran, spending time in San Antonio and Memphis. He had a career year playing as the starting power forward for the Grizzlies last season, averaging 8.9 points and 7.1 rebounds per game. He also shot 50 percent from the field.

According to his agent, Green would like to leave Memphis due to the organization going in another direction. He is also believed to be unhappy with the amount of money offered by the Grizzlies, and after spending the last two years on minimum contracts, Green is looking to get paid.

After a career year and with the Bulls having an abundance of cap space, along with how some players are getting paid this off-season, Green would most probably receive an offer of about $10 million per year. It remains to be seen if the Grizzlies value him that much.
