This offseason is going to be about finding the right way to get this rebuild charted in the right direction under the new Chicago Bulls management.
For the first time in a long time, the Chicago Bulls are about to return to team basketball activities in this calendar year that so many wish to forget in the near future. The Bulls season was put on pause, and ultimately ended prematurely, back in mid-March. The last game they played in was the March 10 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers at home at the United Center.
After beating the Cavaliers in what was the last game of the regular season for the Bulls, they finished up with a record of 22-43. That was good for 11th place in the last set of the Eastern Conference standings prior to the pause. The Bulls were not one of the 22 teams that were brought back to the bubble at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, FL, in the NBA’s season restart.
The lone team out of the East that was outside of the playoff picture that made it into the bubble at Disney World were the Washington Wizards. But the Wizards didn’t even come close to catching up with the Orlando Magic and/or Brooklyn Nets to claim one of the last two playoff spots in the East.
Moreover, the Bulls have had quite the offseason since the pause was first instilled. They started with an overhaul of the front office, and then moved onto the coaching staff. Next up is finding the next head coaching hire and then altering the roster construction from there.
But with group workouts starting back up this week, the current roster at hand has a shot to get back together and see what’s ahead for this group. Here’s a look at three Bulls players to watch in group workouts, starting back up this week.
