The Arron Afflalo Bulls era is possibly less than a month from beginning. Afflalo is an absolute perfect fit for the Bulls, for several reasons:
- He is a very accomplished defender
- At 6'5", 215 pounds, he has good size for a shooting guard
- He is an outstanding 3-point shooter (over the last six seasons, he has shot .402, .434, .423, .398, .300 and .427 from behind the arc)
- He has a very reasonable salary ($7.5 million this season)
- He has 5 postseasons worth of playoff experience
He defends better than all of them, he is a better 3-point shooter than all of them, and even his mid-range game was outstanding last season. Afflalo shot 50.9% from 10-16 feet last season, and 42.0% from 16-23 feet.
