As the Bulls dropped from 6 to 7, I see four possibilities that the Bulls may draft and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of each selection.
I discuss the Bulls draft position, why future tanking probably isn’t a meaningful strategy, the intrigue around several playoff matchups, and free agency both this season and next.
I recap the end of the Bulls season, discuss a bit of the draft at 6th, and take a look at the Bulls off-season plans.
The Bulls are still in the running for 6th or better in the draft. I discuss how they can get there. I also discuss the perils of bidding early in free agency given the lack of money available and hope they wait to make offers to LaVine and Nwaba.
I give the Bulls pick update as well as discuss the recent Bulls injuries and whether or not we are watching fool’s gold play out in front of us or whether these guys have legitimate value in the league.
The NBA shows it cares more about perception than reality with warning of the Bulls for tanking. I discuss this, free agency, and the current Bulls draft pick status on this edition of the Bulls Beat.
I discuss why even though it would be great to have a better pick, it’s even better that the Bulls simply have more talent. Rate the front office and discuss the wildly under appreciated Bobby Portis.
The Orlando Magic out tank the Bulls, a trend likely to continue into the future without a mandate from management to bench some players. I discuss this and the Bulls 2019 future FA targets.
The Chicago Bulls made just minor moves at the deadline and kept Robin Lopez which puts the tank in jeopardy. I also discuss Zach LaVine’s tremendous game against the Timberwolves and how I see the rest of the season playing out.
The Bulls have traded Nikola Mirotic to the Pelicans, I break down the trades, the Bulls tanking position, future trade possibilities, and Zach LaVine’s contract extension.
