After he was cut by the Miami Heat to make room for Jerry Stackhouse, most thought guard Patrick Beverley would find a new NBA home soon. In fact, even Beverley thought the same thing tweeting about good news he was going to have.

Well, that good never came and the team expected to sign him, didn't. Why? Because the Chicago Bulls are keeping the roster flexible to explore future trades, reports

Reportedly, a trade sending forward James Johnson to Charlotte has popped up as an option, but the talks haven't become serious yet. What would the Bulls be seeking in return? No telling at this point, but as of now, their plans don't involve Beverley.

As is the case always in the NBA, nothing is done until it's totally done. So Beverley could still find his way into a Chicago uniform in the near future. The Bulls scheduled Beverley for a physical but nothing materialized. Chicago's options also include bringing back John Lucas III or Kyle Weaver, players that both worked out for the Bulls.

Chicago needs point guard depth right now. C.J. Watson has done a decent job backing up Derrick Rose, but his natural place is more of a combo guard. Most teams carry three point guards, but right now, the Bulls truly only have one plus a shooting guard pretending to be a point man.

Currently, the Bulls have 13 players on the active roster so any trade they're looking at will likely be a two-for-one type of a deal, so it's certainly something to keep an eye on.

Report: Bulls hold on Beverley for trade purposes

'C.J. Watson has done a nice job'?!   He has as many turnovers as assists.  Shooting 36% and 0-5 from the 3 point line.  What have uou been watching?  It has been a disaster so far.  He might have had one good preseason game and that has been it.  Just as bad as Pargo last year.  Beverley would be a great choice because this isn't working at all.  Why and how is Watson deserving of anything now.  He has been so bad it's like watching a high school player play.  So Mr. Young where is your evidence that Watson is doing 'decent'?!
