11:57 AM ET 07.11 | By no stretch is it earth shattering news, but the Chicago Bulls are expecting Mike Dunleavy to come off of the bench this season behind both Luol Deng and Jimmy Butler. There was never much chance for Dunleavy to supplant Deng, however, there were hints he could take Butler's role but that doesn't appear to be the case. Dunleavy averaged over 25 minutes a game last season.

Unless Rose can actually play at a MVP level, Bulls don't have a chance.

Mike will be a great backup. Shot 44% from 3 last season. An all around good player. He will back up Deng and Butler at times.

The Bulls bench looks stacked again. Hinrich, Teague, MDJ, Taj and Mohammad.

I expect the Bulls to lead the league in wins again this year. As they have two of the last three seasons.

But is it enough to beat the Heat? Chicago is probably the only team that can.

I can't agree with you more their bench is going to be very solid. Hard to think that they won't play the Heat in the Conference Finals this year. If this team stays healthy how are they not one of the top teams in the East?
