1. Tomas Satoransky, Combo Guard

Probably the most capable Chicago Bulls player on this list, by a good margin, that could be out of the Windy City before next season arrives is the former Washington Wizards combo guard Tomas Satoransky. But it might not be all that long before Satoransky is pushed out a relevant role in this backcourt rotation.

A lot of Bulls fans, including myself, raved about the signing of Satoransky from the Wizards last offseason. The Bulls made a pretty decent move to pull off the sign-and-trade deal that brought Sato here from the nation’s capital. And the Bulls got him on a deal that would pay him around just $10 million per year.

There are a number of teams in which Sato would be the starting point or two guard, including the Bulls for most of the 2019-20 regular season to date. But he was surpassed by rookie point guard Coby White as the starting one in the Bulls last game before the hiatus. That game saw White score a lot yet again and get the team a 108-103 home win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

So far this season, Sato played in all 65 games while averaging 9.9 points per game, 3.9 rebounds, 5.4 assists, and 1.2 steals, while shooting 43.0 percent from the field and 32.0 percent from beyond the arc. The outside shooting really did go down the drain in the second half of the regular season. That might be another reason why the Bulls would be willing to shop Sato this offseason.
