Who are the three current and/or former Chicago Bulls players that we would love to see in a possible NBA charity game soon?

A hope that the NBA could return by early summer to lift the hiatus of their 2019-20 regular season is spearheaded by the efforts to contain the domestic outbreak of the novel coronavirus. The Chicago Bulls are seeing their city becoming part of that effort, as bigger metropolitan areas all over the United States are getting hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The NBA originally had to place its season on suspension on March 11 after the Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for COVID-19. That was shortly followed by his teammate and guard Donovan Mitchell testing positive for COVID-19 in the 24 hour span. Then Detroit Pistons forward Christian Wood tested positive as well.

Since then, the Brooklyn Nets are the only team to have announced that any of their players tested positive for COVID-19. It was since revealed that one of those four Nets players to have tested positive is star forward Kevin Durant.

Moreover, the Bulls are steering clear of the news cycle in the way of COVID-19 in terms of any of their players testing positive. According to a report from K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago on March 18, the Bulls don’t have any players that are showing symptoms yet. But the team is going into a quarantine after the news dropped of the four Nets players testing positive.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver outlined further plans for the league to get back up and running and what it is doing in the meantime during the hiatus, in an interview with ESPN on March 17. That interview with ESPN showcased Silver’s idea of the NBA hosting a charity game to support the COVID-19 efforts. There’s no concrete date on when that would happen, or even if it is an official plan in the works yet.

Nonetheless, it is nice to hear about game any in the NBA in some regard with how bad things are in the fight against COVID-19 right now.

With that charity game possibility in mind, here’s a look into three current or former Chicago Bulls players that would be great to watch in a potential NBA charity game to help spurn the COVID-19 outbreak.
