The Chicago Tribune buries this nugget in a story about the Bulls financial decisions this summer:
Management will say its financial decisions are cloaked in basketball reasons. With Rose out until likely March, next season is a treading-water season. So instead of depth being the secondary star, the Bulls hope to add a legitimate one alongside Rose.
If true, chalk up 2012-13 as a lost season for the Bulls.
