Sign forward Marcus Morris to 1-year, $5.3 million deal

After addressing the point guard position in restricted free agency with Russell, the team now must search for a backup power forward. Enter Marcus Morris, the veteran power forward who last played for the Boston Celtics. With the recent Anthony Davis rumors, the team could be looking to go a different direction at the four spot and Morris could be on his way out.

Chicago would be an intriguing situation for the big man because he could receive more money to play as a Bull than he could in other situations. In addition, playing off the bench in Chicago would ensure him many more touches than he had on a crowded Celtics roster and possibly boost his free agent value for next summer.

Sign forward Jeff Green to 1-year, $2.39 million deal

Adding more veteran presence down low, the Bulls sign Jeff Green to fill up the third power forward spot behind Morris and Markkanen. Green will have no problem playing for a veteran’s minimum, as he did in Washington this past season. In addition, Green may be enticed to leave the mess that is the Wizards organization and move to an upward-trending Chicago squad.

Sign C Jahlil Okafor to 1-year, 1.62 million deal

To wrap up the Bulls’ exciting off-season, the team takes a hometown kid in Jahlil Okafor to serve as center depth behind Carter Jr. and Lopez. Once a heralded prospect and star rookie, Okafor’s career has spiraled downward due to his old-school style of play. Still only 23-years-old, Okafor may find it appealing to play in his home town and leave another messy situation in New Orleans.
