The Chicago Bulls are about to give their new front office lead duo of Arturas Karnisovas and Marc Eversley their first shot in free agency tomorrow.
With the much anticipated start to this cycle of free agency less than 36 hours away from starting for the Chicago Bulls, along with the other 29 teams around the NBA landscape, there’s a lot of excitement building for this fan base. We are soon to figure out what the next step in this rebuild will be, as Arturas Karnisovas and Marc Eversley can start to retool the current roster at hand in the very near future.
The Bulls already had a lot of change within the organization this offseason. Since the pause was first put in place in the midst of the novel coronavirus pandemic back in mid-March, the Bulls made a plethora of moves to try and rejuvenate this rebuild heading into its fourth year. It all started with the demotion of former vice president of basketball operations John Paxson to a senior advisor role. Management/ownership then promptly parted ways with now former general manager Gar Forman.
Karnisovas replaced Paxson as the lead voice in the front office, and Eversley replaces Forman as the Bulls general manager. The official title for Karnisovas with the Bulls will be executive VP of basketball operations.
Moreover, the Bulls made another big splash hire back on Sep. 22 with the addition of former Oklahoma City Thunder head coach Billy Donovan to replace Jim Boylen (who they parted ways with back on Aug. 14). Where do the Bulls go from here in terms of building out the roster starting on the evening of Oct. 18, in the next cycle of free agency?
Here’s a look into three potential steals that the Bulls could go after in free agency this offseason.
