This pairing could be a surprise or a shock with equal ease

The Chicago Bulls have made a huge splash in the 2016 Free Agency by acquiring two of the best guards available from the free agents’ pool. By adding Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo, the Bulls now gain two former NBA champions. But the impact of the signings remains to be seen and is not far from questionable

The Golden State Warriors are unquestionably the winners of the 2016 NBA Free Agency. The addition of a player like Kevin Durant takes an otherworldly offence to stratospheric levels. It would have been hard to top that, and going by name value. the Bulls have done a good job of making a splash. Only time will tell if the splash is a ripple effect blasting all competition or the dull gulp of the laden corpse of the Bulls of past drowning in no man's land.

One thing is for sure, this has made the Bulls a team to keep an eye on. Kind of like a speeding truck with no brakes carrying fuel tanks and headed for the metropolis. Take three outspoken personalities and add a coach who hasn’t had the experience of dealing with such, and you have a recipe for carnage either way.

Here are 8 things to expect with the Bulls’ signing Wade and Rondo:

#1 Questionable scoring

Anytime your players 1-3 are all used to having the ball in their hands for extended periods of time, you can be sure of fielding a confusing offence. 

Rajon Rondo has never been known as a scorer, he averages just 11 points per game over his career and is one of the few point guards in the league without a reliable jumper.

Last season, Wade averaged a career-low 45.6% shooting percentage. It remains to be seen how much he is willing to defer to the other two stars on this team.

Jimmy Butler ought to be the unquestionable top dog on this team. He’s the youngest stud and is the future of the franchise. But he needs more touches. So does the talented group on the Bulls bench, but how will they get it? A combination of all these factors could lead to a confusing offence.
