Which three players should be off the table in most trade talks as a beneficial move by the Chicago Bulls whenever the impending offseason arrives?

The looming offseason should be one of the most intriguing in recent memory for the Chicago Bulls. Since the novel coronavirus pandemic brought about a halt to the NBA’s regular season, the Bulls jumped ahead to tackling the much-needed reshaping of their front office. The Bulls first made the move to hire former Denver Nuggets general manager Arturas Karnisovas as their next executive vice president of basketball operations, which was the initial domino of many to fall in the last month and a half.

Karnisovas is set to replace the former vice president of basketball operations John Paxson to be the lead voice in the front office. He also hired former Philadelphia 76ers VP of player personnel Marc Eversley to replace Gar Forman as the next general manager. Among a number of other executive personnel shifts, Karnisovas has already established a lot of his foundation for reshaping the front office.

Once the front office is pieced together in the method in which Karnisovas desires, then the focus should shift to reshaping the roster and coaching staff. There’s some pieces in place in the coaching staff which should remain, like former Brooklyn Nets assistant Chris Fleming and possibly former Houston Rockets assistant Roy Rogers. But the popular opinion is going to hold out that current head coach Jim Boylen should be gone.

Nonetheless, one of the other important decisions that Karnisovas will have to make this coming offseason is which players to keep secure no matter what. Hitting the trade market could see the Bulls made a bigger move, but some players on the current roster shouldn’t be involved in that conversation.

Here’s a deeper look into the three Bulls players that should be considered untouchable in trade discussions this offseason.
