The Bulls traded Jose Calderon to sign Dwyane Wade, but the move also cleared up Chicago’s glut of point guards.
Now, the Bulls are bringing in another in Isaiah Canaan. [/restrict]
Canaan has steadied himself as a good 3-point shooter… and that’s about it. He’s so limited as a distributor, Ish Smith looked like a savior replacing Canaan as the 76ers’ starter last year.
Maybe Canaan can play play some shooting guard. The Bulls could use depth behind Wade. But at 6-foot, that’s a tough sell.
Otherwise, Canaan will compete with Jerian Grant and Spencer Dinwiddie for minutes behind Rajon Rondo. Neither Grant nor Dinwiddie has a proven track record of success either, so Canaan could help. At this low cost and on a contract not guaranteed after this season, it’s worth finding out.[/restrict]
