Under a new front-office regime, the Chicago Bulls will have some tough decisions to make in the near future. Here are their 3 most tradable players.
Now that the GarPax era is officially over for the Chicago Bulls, changes are bound to happen soon. The Arturas Karnisovas-Marc Eversley era is just beginning and it’s unclear exactly how they’ll want to approach the future of the Bulls’ roster.
Perhaps Karnisovas and Eversley will want to give this young core another chance to prove they have star potential. But it would also be understandable if they ditched some of the GarPax guys in favor of their own desired assets. If the latter is the case, they’ll have some tough decisions to make when it comes to who to keep and who to let go.
Here are the three most tradable Bulls on the roster right now.
3. Wendell Carter Jr.
Wendell Carter Jr. has had a weird start to his NBA career. Due to his inability to stay healthy, he’s only played in 87 total games. In those games, he’s been pretty solid. His defensive rotations are elite. He has a high basketball IQ on both ends of the floor. And he’s as unselfish as they come.
But sometimes, that unselfishness hurts him. He often struggles to look for his own shot unless it’s too open to pass up (even then, he sometimes passes it up). He also struggles mightily with foul trouble, but that’s something that should improve with age.
Carter turned 21 years old in April, so he’s still incredibly young and is still on his rookie contract. If I was in charge of the Bulls’ roster, I wouldn’t trade him, but I’m sure there are a lot of teams that would give up a decent haul for the big man.
