Deng was an all star last year, he's far from what many consider an all star. The guy can't create his own shot. He's an above average player and thats about all.

Boozer is terrible and Noah and Boozer both found themselves on the bench at the end of games last season....thats $28 mil on the bench at the end of games.

Also the Bulls had the best bench. When Brewer, Watson, and Korver are let go and all the Bulls have is $2.5 mil to spend in free agency, that bench advantage is going to dissapear. Hell they may end up losing Asik as well.

If you do dismantle the roster you aren't stuck with nothing as you said above, you'll have Rose and Noah and hopefully Taj and cap space to help you try to get an actual difference maker which you don't have right now.
You're right. People don't generally think of Deng as a prototypical All-Star because he doesn't shoot 40 times a game and average 25 ppg. Deng is a defensive leader that spreads the floor with superior jump shooting abilities. In no way is he just an above average player.
