With a 9-16 record, the Bulls are getting nowhere fast these days. With pretty much everyone playing like shit, the trade value of any player at this point is definitely down. However, the time is now for Johnny pop-a-shot to start stringing deals together. Not next week, or some time in January. NOW. It's the only way they can get out of the cellar. Here's a look at next month's schedule:

Wed, Jan 2 @ Charlotte 7:00 PM
Thu, Jan 3 Portland 8:00 PM
Sat, Jan 5 Sacramento 8:30 PM
Tue, Jan 8 NY Knicks 8:30 PM
Fri, Jan 11 @ Philadelphia 7:00 PM
Sun, Jan 13 @ Atlanta 2:00 PM
Tue, Jan 15 @ Orlando 7:00 PM
Wed, Jan 16 @ Miami 7:00 PM
Fri, Jan 18 Golden State 9:30 PM
Sat, Jan 19 Detroit 8:30 PM
Mon, Jan 21 @ Memphis 5:30 PM
Wed, Jan 23 Indiana 8:30 PM
Fri, Jan 25 Charlotte 8:30 PM
Sun, Jan 27 Phoenix 1:00 PM
Tue, Jan 29 Minnesota 8:30 PM
Wed, Jan 30 @ Minnesota 8:00 PM

They get Charlotte and Minnesota twice, along with Atlanta. This team needs to go at least 11-5 to get back to .500 (assuming they can beat Milwaukee and New York because San Antonio and Orlando will most likely kick their ass for their last 4 games this month.)

The latest rumors have the Bulls dealing Ben Wallace (please make it happen dear lord) and Ben Gordon for Tracy McGrady. This would definitely benefit both teams as Yao can have Wallace watch his back for him on the weak side, and Gordon will jack up all the shots you want him to in Adelman's up-tempo offense. The Bulls would then get the big guard who can take the last shot they've desperately needed. I know he constantly gets hurt, but Gordon is not on T-Mac level, and may never be. This would then clear the way for Aaron Gray to start, and get more minutes for Joakim Noah.

All I know is that something needs to be done. Fast.
