The Chicago Bulls came in this NBA season with the promise to redeem themselves following their embarrassing performance of not making it to the playoffs the previous year. However, even the exit of Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah, Taj Gibson and Doug McDermitt from the team seemed to have little effect. The leadership roles granted to the Big 3, Dwyane Wade, Jimmy Butler and Rajon Rondo, appeared to still be taken for granted with none of the promised changes coming true thus far. Will the free agency season bring them better players then?

The Chicago Bulls came in this NBA season with the promise to redeem themselves following their embarrassing performance of not making it to the playoffs the previous year. However, even the exit of Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah, Taj Gibson and Doug McDermitt from the team seemed to have little effect. The leadership roles granted to the Big 3, Dwyane Wade, Jimmy Butler and Rajon Rondo, appeared to still be taken for granted with none of the promised changes coming true thus far. Will the free agency season bring them better players then?

The Los Angeles Clippers, which earlier started this NBA season with a bang following the return of Blake Griffin, now slid to the fifth spot behind the Houston Rockets and Utah Jazz. From being pegged as serious challengers to the Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs, the DeAndre Jordan squad now sits among teams not even regarded as potential playoffs finals contenders. Will huge changes be seen next season?

Rumors are rife that a JJ Redick contract with the Los Angeles Clippers seems to be on the rocks this season. The 32-year-old star reportedly wants out of the Blake Griffin team and find employment elsewhere. Among the interested teams are the Houston Rockets, Boston Celtics, Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings. However, it looks like the Chicago Bulls could be the next stop for a JJ Redick contract next season.

"I don't know what to expect from this team anymore," said JJ Redick of the Los Angeles Clippers. "We're in a bad place right now. We're losing games. We've been (garbage) since the All-Star break."

At the moment, no official comment has been provided by the parties tagged in this NBA rumor. However, speculations are circulating that the JJ Redick contract with the Los Angeles Clippers would be ending soon.

"An upcoming free agent leaving a team on the road to nowhere (again). Riddled with injuries (again), the Clippers have been up and down like a roller coaster all season (again). Guys like JJ Redick, the consistent role players, have to get fed up eventually," predicted Vaughan Jones of Fansided.

What do you think? Should the Chicago Bulls really pursue a JJ Redick contract? Will this get rid of the lingering problems of Dwyane Wade, Jimmy Butler and Rajon Rondo? Can the Los Angeles Clippers star bring in better results if he actually agrees to join the Nikola Mirotic squad? Or will he be better off with Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan?
