Where are the plans going to lie for the Chicago Bulls new look front office management entering the 2020 offseason to find more success for the rebuild?
Heading into the 2020 offseason, the Chicago Bulls have a lot of ways they could go to try and find a new spark in this rebuild. With the rebuild heading into its fourth year as well during the 2020 offseason, a lot is on the line for this new look group of front office personnel. This offseason could be a huge opportunity for the new front office regime to get this rebuild right.
But there’s no ultra-lucrative free agent market or gem NBA Draft class for the Bulls to rely upon this offseason. They’re really going to have to dig deep and find the best route forward without having an obvious one in sight. The good news is that there’s plenty of time to figure out what the plan will be.
The Bulls last played a regular season game on March 10, which resulted in a home win over the Central Division foe Cleveland Cavaliers. It’s likely to be eight or nine months between meaningful games for the Bulls, which is a massively long offseason compared to usual.
If the novel coronavirus pandemic is going to deliver anything for the Bulls, it will be a more patient offseason process with a front office shift that was much-needed for a long while now. The Bulls replaced former vice president of basketball operations John Paxson with ex-Denver Nuggets general manager Arturas Karnisovas and former general manager Gar Forman with ex-Philadelphia 76ers VP of player personnel Marc Eversley.
Karnisovas and Eversley will need to put their best foot forward to put this rebuild back on the right path starting this offseason. Here’s a look into the three most valuable trade assets they have to work with on the current Bulls roster.
