We have 15 players on our roster, which obviously limits our flexibility moving forward. While Garrett Temple has done a good job holding down the fort as a backup PG, I think we all know this team could use a more competent player down the road. We could also use another reserve big. I have no idea where we're going to find such players, but I know you aren't going to get one if your roster is already full.
The team has more than enough wings (come back soon GR Jr) and once (if!) Al Harrington returns, combo forwards. All of this makes Chris Singleton, a guy clearly not in our future plans, expendable. The Bulls, after trading away Luol Deng, need to sign a player in the next 2 weeks to bring their roster back to an NBA minimum of 13. So why not give... errr... trade him to Chicago for the always dubious "future considerations"?!?
Chris would presumably get a chance to play for a team with a sudden lack of SF depth, and presumably a better look since it seems like the Bulls are entering tank mode. He's off the books next season, so he doesn't hurt them. We get a 15th spot and some flexibility.
