Belinelli tied his season-high, and the game-high, with 24 points, and helped guide the Bulls to a 99-93 win over the Brooklyn Nets in Game 7 on Saturday night. Belinelli hit several clutch 3-pointers during the game, and perhaps more important, matched Brooklyn star Deron Williams point for point. "I wanted to win this game so bad. I have never been to the semifinals, conference finals," Belinelli said. "I'm going to be the first Italian guy that is going to play in the second round. I'm happy. I just love this team." ESPN.com

Despite injuries, Belinelli has been pretty solid for the Bulls. The problem with his pending free agency is that unless he agrees to stay on a low dollar deal like the $1.9 million he is earning this year, he may be priced out of Chicago’s range simply because of how much they have invested in other core players. Sources close to the situation suggest that the Bulls will look to upgrade at the two guard spot, meaning they could look at better players leaving Belinelli on the outside looking in. Belinelli is an interesting “value-priced” free agent. As bigger names fall off the board he could find real interest in his services on a multi-year deal. HoopsWorld
