(WSCR) Just a few weeks ago, the NBAPA decided to disband and the fate of the NBA season looked grim.

Today, however, NBA teams are gearing up for a truncated free agency period and the start of a 66-game regular season starting Christmas day.

The Score’s Jason Goff hosted a round table discussion late Tuesday night to discuss the upcoming season and what the Bulls need to do to make it past the Eastern Conference Finals and win the franchise’s seventh title.

Joining Goff was Chris Cason from the Examiner.com, Bryan Crawford of Slam Magazine, Aggrey Sam of CSNChicago.com and K.C Johnson of the Chicago Tribune.

The panel discussed the possible acquisition of free agents Jason Richardson, Vince Carer, Caron Butler and Brandon Roy, should he be amnestied by the Trailblazers.

The group also talked about the importance of Carlos Boozer earning the remaining money on his 5-year, $80-million deal and Derrick Rose continue to step up his game.
