What are the contracts that would still be the easiest for the Chicago Bulls to trade if a good offer were to come their way this offseason?
A lot of different paths exist for the Chicago Bulls as they try to make the most out of a 2020 offseason that should include a lot of twists and turns along the way. The Bulls already made some significant moves this offseason to try and reshape the look of this rebuild heading into its fourth year.
To start, the Bulls reshaped the look of the front office from the top-down. They demoted former vice president of basketball operations John Paxson to a senior advisor role and former general manager Gar Forman is now out of any role within this Bulls organization entirely. Former Denver Nuggets general manager Arturas Karnisovas replaces Paxson as the lead voice in the front office. And former Philadelphia 76ers senior VP of player personnel Marc Eversley replaces Forman as the next general manager.
Karnisovas and Eversley are now tasked with finding what the best direction will be for the rebuild to go starting in the 2020 offseason. The Bulls finished up the 2019-20 season with a record of 22-43, good for 11th place in the Eastern Conference standings. Theoretically, there shouldn’t be many places that the Bulls can go from here but up.
The Bulls also made the move to part ways with former head coach Jim Boylen after just under two seasons at the helm in the Windy City. Boylen finished up his run with the Bulls as head coach with a record of 39-84.
There was also a nice stroke of luck for the Bulls by landing the fourth overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft Lottery. That was a three spot jump in the lottery odds for the first overall pick. This could give the front office more ammunition to figure out something to do possibly on the trade market this offseason.
Here’s a look at the three most tradeable contracts that the Bulls front office could also use to make moves to the roster construction this offseason.
