The roster construction for the Chicago Bulls could look a lot different next season with some new voices leading the way in the front office.
If only the Chicago Bulls could’ve come somewhat close to meeting heightened preseason expectations for this season, they might be in position to be included in a possibly fun and different playoff system this year. If the NBA jumps straight into a playoff system, then the Bulls would be officially kicking off their 2020 offseason slate.
There’s a lot to do this coming offseason for the new-look Bulls front office regime. Last month, the Reinsdors finally made the move to oust the previous lead voices in the front office, including general manager Gar Forman and vice president of basketball operations John Paxson.
Forman was replaced by the former Philadelphia 76ers vice president of player personnel Marc Eversley, who will be the Bulls next general manager. And Paxson was replaced by the former Denver Nuggets general manager Arturas Karnisovas, who’s official title with the organization will be executive vice president of basketball operations.
We’ll have to wait and see what other changes the hirings of Karnisovas and Eversley, among others like Pat Connelly and J.J. Polk, brings about in terms of shifts for the rest of the front office personnel, coaching staff, and the 15-man roster. The Bulls needed to make significant changes from the top-down, and it looks like they’re finally in the process of doing something like that.
Although, it would be nice to see Paxson away from the Bulls organization completely. Instead the Reinsdorfs are keeping him on as a senior advisor. But the changes to the coaching staff and the roster construction are what this fan base should be watching at this point.
Here’s a look into the three underrated Bulls players from the 2019-20 squad that are worth keeping around heading into next season.
