With the Rip Hamilton experiment not going quite as they'd envisioned, and with the probability that Ronnie Brewer won't be back next season, the Chicago Bulls are looking at Courtney Lee as a possible shooting guard next season.
Lee played for the Houston Rockets last season and averaged 11.4 points per game and shot 40 percent from behind the three-point line. The Bulls need someone to play alongside Derrick Rose who can not only shoot, but put the ball on the floor and generate his own offense.
If the Bulls acquire Lee, he would most likely be the starter and move Rip Hamilton to a back up role. He would also have something in common with first-round draft pick Marquis Teague as both are from Indianapolis and played at Pike High School.
The Rockets withdrew their $4.3 million dollar qualifying offer on Lee on Tuesday.
