The former Bulls player on this list that most recently left the team is now playing with his twin brother on a divisional foe. Veteran Milwaukee Bucks center Robin Lopez isn’t having his best season in the NBA to date, but he is still on one of the deepest teams in the league. The Bucks are looking like the far and away title favorite out of the Eastern Conference.
RoLo and fellow veteran center Brook Lopez are both making various contributions that are helping the Bucks’ cause to trying to win the first title with reigning MVP winner and superstar forward Giannis Antetokounmpo.
As a solid part of the Bulls frontcourt rotation over the course of three seasons, Lopez played in 219 games while averaging 10.5 points per game, 5.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists, and 1.1 blocks, while shooting 52.6 percent from the field and 73.2 percent from the charity stripe. He was one of the most efficient big men during that time period in the Windy City.
So far this season with the Bucks, Lopez played in 60 games while averaging 5.5 points per game, 2.4 rebounds, 0.7 assists, and 0.7 blocks, while shooting 50.2 percent from the field and 53.5 percent from the charity stripe. This just might not be the role that Lopez is best served in statistically, but he finally has a chance to win a title and play alongside his twin brother.
That doesn’t mean that Bulls players like center Wendell Carter Jr. and power forward Lauri Markkanen could really benefit from having the veteran presence of a center like Lopez back around.
