CHICAGO -- There are many free-agent options out there for the Chicago Bulls, but there is only one no-brainer, according to player development assistant Lindsey Hunter: LeBron James.

"Hands down, LeBron James," Hunter said Tuesday on "The Waddle & Silvy Show" on ESPN 1000 when asked which free agent he would like to see in Chicago. "He's the most talented player in the NBA right now. I think you could never pass up an opportunity to have a guy like that on your team. That's a no-brainer."

Hunter, who played the final season and a half of his 17-year NBA career with the Bulls before taking a position as a player development assistant, said there should be little doubt about whether James could co-exist with Derrick Rose.

"I laugh at a situation like that simply because you have two guys who very easily could average over 20 points apiece," Hunter said. "When you can walk into an arena and have that in your pocket, you're winning. That's an easy choice. That's not even something to think about."
