Now that it appears the Bulls won't sign Tracy McGrady, they'll have to look elsewhere to find a fifth guard and 12th man on the roster.
The Bulls have talked with the Portland Trail Blazers about sharpshooter Rudy Fernandez, but the chances of a trade happening don't seem promising, according to a source.
The Bulls' offer of forward James Johnson was rejected and there's really no one else on the roster that makes sense. The Blazers also have reportedly talked to the Boston Celtics and New York Knicks about Fernandez.
The Bulls, who still have nearly $3 million left to spend, likely will turn to free agency to fill the position. They have expressed some interest in Eddie House, Roger Mason and Keith Bogans.
