Are there any free agent targets out there heading into this cycle that should really appeal to the Chicago Bulls to pair well with Coby White?
A lot of Chicago Bulls fans had mixed reactions to the results from the new front office regime in the 2020 NBA Draft. The Bulls had somewhat of a surprise and a reach with the fourth overall pick in the draft lottery, selecting the former Florida State Seminoles freshman forward and the reigning ACC Sixth Man of the Year Patrick Williams.
Bulls fans did give better reactions to the selection of the KK Mega Bemax potent 21-year-old 6-foot-11 and 215 pound big man Marko Simonovic, 44th overall in the second round. They also got a nice value addition in the former Kansas Jayhawks star sophomore point guard and undrafted free agent signing Devon Dotson.
Now that the Bulls have added Williams, Simonovic, and Dotson to the mix ahead of the start of Training Camp, what’s next for the alterations to this roster?
Newly hired executive vice president of basketball operations Arturas Karnisovas and general manager Marc Eversley still have a lot to do in this cycle of free agency to put the Bulls in the best spot possible heading into the fourth year of the rebuild. They need to take the next step to build out this roster around newly hired head coach (formerly of the Oklahoma City Thunder) Billy Donovan.
The next cycle of free agency is to start on the evening of Nov. 20, giving way to what could be a huge news cycle for the Bulls this weekend. Which players should the Bulls be focusing on to find the best fits in free agency?
Shooting guard Zach LaVine and point guard Coby White are two that come to mind. Here’s a look into three free agents that would pair well with the latter of those two Bulls players.
