CHICAGO -- After such a disheartening loss, there will be plenty of opinions on how the Bulls can better. Let's take a quick look at how each player may figure in the Bulls' plans heading into the summer ...

Bottom line: The Bulls have holes to fill to get past the Miami Heat next season. They don't have enough talent to compete in a seven game series. It will be up to John Paxson and Gar Forman to figure out where the biggest needs are and fill them. There is no bigger need than finding another scorer to help Rose. Boozer doesn't appear to be that guy -- they need somebody on the perimeter who can fill that need.
