Mayo, Jackson on Bulls Radar

December 29, 2010

If you talked to me at the start of the season and asked me what the Bulls were missing, it would be no doubt that the answer is a scoring guard. Yes, they picked up Ronnie Brewer in free agency this past summer, but he hasn’t been the greatest of assets. Therefore, a trade for O.J. Mayo (especially) or Stephen Jackson would definitely be the perfect fit for this team.

From Chicago Tribune:

NBA sources tell us the Bulls are one of the most aggressive teams in the NBA trade market as they try to find a scoring guard who is a good fit with All-Star point Derrick Rose.

USC coach Kevin O’Neill, a longtime college head coach and NBA assistant has experience with Stephen Jackson and O.J. Mayo, both of whom reportedly on the Bulls radar.

“Jackson is a better shooter and probably is a better fit alongside Rose,” O’Neill said. “Mayo is more of a slasher and wants the ball in his hands to take it to the basket, which takes the ball out of Rose’s hands. (That’s why) Jackson is probably a better complement to Rose.”
