2013 Chicago Bulls Preseason Schedule


The Chicago Bulls have released their 2013 preseason schedule, in case you’re already tired of the Summer League.

Obviously without Derrick Rose, the preseason (as well as the regular season) loses a lot of it’s muster. But this preseason is perhaps the most important preseason that the Bulls have had in a while. Because Rose won’t be here for most of season, the preseason will afford us an early look at what this team will look like.

It will also afford the Bulls a chance to try and get used to not having Rose with the unit they will suit up with. Last year the Bulls won the most games int he NBA largely without Rose, but this year they are moving forward without four of those key players.

Ronnie Brewer, C.J. Watson, Kyle Korver and likely Omer Asik will not be back. So to expect the same results without Rose is not something one should do.

But the preseason actual holds some serious importance this year. Here’s a rundown of what the seven game tour will look like:
