A new look Chicago Bulls front office should make significant roster changes whenever the coming offseason is to officially arrive.
Any team that finds themselves in a position like the one that the rebuilding Chicago Bulls are in now should take this long pause in the season as an opportunity for reflection and strategizing for the future. The Bulls are facing yet another mid-level lottery pick in the NBA Draft, and trying another shot at rejuvenating the rebuild in the midst of its third year.
Entering the novel coronavirus pandemic induced NBA hiatus, the Bulls held a record of 22-43 in their first 65 games. And the Bulls might have played their last game too if the NBA jumps straight back into the playoffs once/or if the season resumes back up. This will give the new front office regime plenty of time to plan out what the direction of the franchise will be heading into the 2020-21 season.
The Bulls played their last game back on March 10, coming against the Cleveland Cavaliers at home. But that game seems like it happened a year ago at this point. Since then, not much more tangible changes occurred for any one NBA team than for the Bulls. They started the process of reshuffling much of the front office, and the same could be on the way for the coaching staff and roster construction.
But any changes to the coaching staff could stay be a few months out at least, if they’re even going to happen in the first place before next season. And changes to the roster construction has to wait until next season any way you look at it.
This is a task that is going to start with the Bulls recently hired executive vice president of basketball operations and former Denver Nuggets general manager Arturas Karnisovas.
Here’s a look into the three Bulls players that Karnisovas should want gone from the team heading into next season.
