With former OKC Thunder HC Billy Donovan in place as the Chicago Bulls new head coach, which players could be on the way out this offseason?

Now that the Chicago Bulls have come close to completely reshaping the look of the front office and coaching staff, they can turn their attention to planning out the roster construction for the 2020-21 season. Certain pieces the Bulls have in place for next season are promising, but you’re kidding yourself if you think the current roster is playoff caliber to any degree beside possibly an eight seed in the Eastern Conference.

There are alterations in a pretty major sense that should be on the way for the Bulls this offseason. It can all start with the Bulls fourth overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft Lottery. They lucked out to jump up four spots in the draft lottery odds to nab the fourth overall pick.

More changes should occur in this cycle of free agency. Although this isn’t the most fruitful free agent class in recent memory (or compared to the 2021 cycle), the Bulls have an opportunity to bolster the supporting cast around the young core at a few positions of need.

And then the last piece to the puzzle for any potential Bulls roster construction changes could be the trade block. The Bulls didn’t make any major trades over the course of each of the last two offseasons. But they did make that major trade during the 2017 offseason that saw star shooting guard/small forward Jimmy Butler shipped off to the Minnesota Timberwolves for the return that included power forward Lauri Markkanen, point guard Kris Dunn, and shooting guard Zach LaVine.

Could another major trade be looming for the Bulls this offseason?

Here’s a look into the three trade chips that make the most sense for the Bulls to part ways with this offseason.
