Realistic trades that the Chicago Bulls could put together this offseason to finally land a star might be the best way for the front office to proceed.
It won’t be easy for the Chicago Bulls new front office regime to find the best path forward to build up this roster throughout the remainder of the 2020 offseason. There’s a lot of options that the Bulls management has to work off of, which is a good thing, but there’s no clear way to do it correctly.
What we do know is that the Bulls are working with newly hired executive vice president of basketball operations (and former Denver Nuggets general manager Arturas Karnisovas) to find a way forward. Karnisovas replaces former VP of basketball operations John Paxson as the lead voice in the front office.
And by Karnisovas’ side is the former Philadelphia 76ers senior VP of player personnel Marc Eversley, who replaces Gar Forman as the Bulls general manager.
Karnisovas and Eversley will be responsible for finding the best path forward heading into the fourth year of the rebuild. They really have three options for which they could go to best build up the roster. There’s not really a name that sticks out among the impending free agents for this offseason that the Bulls could use to land a star. But free agency could help build up their supporting cast for newly hired head coach Billy Donovan.
They could also turn to the trade market and using their fourth overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft to build up the roster. Yet, if they do want to land a true star this offseason, then a trade might be the best way to go.
If that is the case, which three stars could the Bulls target on the trade block that would be the most realistic for them to land this offseason.
