With the NBA Preseason set to officially begin just a week from today, the Chicago Bulls will finally be able to start answering the mountain of questions surrounding this team. It all starts here, as Chicago’s Media Day and the Bulls’ training camp will provide us our first look at a slightly revamped roster entering the 2022-23 season.

After a splashy offseason in 2021 that saw the Bulls acquire key contributors DeMar DeRozan, Lonzo Ball, Alex Caruso, and Ayo Dosunmu, it didn’t take long for the team to put themselves back on the map. The Bulls had their best season since 2014-15 last year, winning 46 games and making their first playoff appearance in five years.

Now, Chicago is relying on veteran additions Andre Drummond and Goran Dragic, as well as rookie Dalen Terry to help fill the gaps and hopefully propel the Bulls to a 50-win season.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Chicago Bulls Media Day and Training Camp leading up to the NBA Preseason.

Chicago Bulls Media Day

For almost every team in the league, including the Bulls, Media Day will take place on Monday, September 26, 2022. Several members of the Bulls organization will be available to take questions and hopefully shed some light on what we can expect from the team in the upcoming season. Naming a replacement starting point guard until Lonzo Ball can return will certainly be among the topics everyone will want to know, including Dalen Terry’s expected role in the rotation and just how big of an impact Drummond and Dragic are expected to make.

After the complete roster overhaul that took place last year, this should be a much more tame environment as the front office and head coach Billy Donovan continue to stress the importance of continuity for this team as they develop as a cohesive unit.

The Chicago Bulls will be available for Media Day beginning at 1 p.m. CT.

Chicago Bulls Training Camp

Just one day later, training camp begins in what figures to be quite a competitive event for the Chicago Bulls. Although Justin Lewis is holding down one of the team’s current two-way contracts, there seems to be an open competition running for the final two-way contract spot.

After signing Exhibit 10 contracts, Javon Freeman-Liberty will be joined by Summer League teammate Carlik Jones, returning Bull Malcolm Hill, and newest acquisition Kostas Antetokounmpo in the fight for a full-time roster spot.

The last day to finalize 17-man rosters before the NBA season kicks off is October 17, so there’s not much time left on the clock for these players to make a name for themselves. Make sure to check back in after September 27 for all the latest updates regarding Chicago’s media day and training camp.
