If recently hired Chicago Bulls general manager Marc Eversley has any early big splash trade targets in mind that could be realistic, who are they?
The recent general manager hire for the Chicago Bulls made a lot of sense in almost every sense. Recently hired executive vice president of basketball operations, and former Denver Nuggets general manager, Arturas Karnisovas elected to hire former Philadelphia 76ers senior vice president of player personnel Marc Eversley to be the next Bulls general manager. Eversley is one of two key front office hires that Karnisovas made thus far.
The other key hire that Karnisovas made since he was brought aboard as the Bulls lead executive was former New Orleans Pelicans executive director of basketball administration JJ Polk, serving in the role of assistant general manager. Polk and Eversley both seem like solid hires thus far, but we won’t know for sure until there are tangible changes to the roster construction and in the win column.
Another big looming question for the Bulls new look front office will be how they handle the situation surrounding head coach Jim Boylen. As one of the least successful and popular head coaches within the NBA ranks, the front office should consider at the very least conducting a full coaching search to move this rebuild in a more promising direction.
Boylen definitely wasn’t the biggest problem while the Bulls rebuild started to fail in its third year, but that doesn’t mean that he shouldn’t see the door in the near future. Most Bulls fans would likely agree that Boylen should go.
There’s a lot of tasks for Karnisovas, Polk, and Eversley to tackle once they start making changes to the Bulls organization further from the top-down.
Here’s a look into the four early trade targets that recently hired Chicago Bulls general manager Marc Eversley should have in his new position.
