Michael Redd showed NBA teams that after three years of injuries, his return to a full-time player is possible after his season with the Phoenix Suns. The veteran free agent is still looking for a home in the 2012-13 season and reportedly has five teams vying for his services.
Chicago did little this summer in acquiring some help, but according to Fox Sports, the Bulls are one of the teams looking to add the veteran shooting guard. With injured guard Derrick Rose having to time-table for his return, adding an outside scoring threat couldn't hurt, and Redd is a good player on and off the court.
Last year, the 32-year-old averaged over eight points per game, but played just 15 minutes. A major increase in playing time could see his numbers reach 12+ points per night and would give the Bulls some much-needed scoring and a good back-court mate for Rose when he does return.
Redd won't ever be the player he was with Milwaukee, but the NBA veteran is a player that can help a contending team, and with his salary likely to be just the veterans' minimum, the risk-reward for his services is a good move by whatever team signs him.
