Topics discussed include: The log jam in the front court, the Bulls sorely missing Kris Dunn, the issues at point guard, Zach LaVine’s struggles, Nikola Mirotic to the Pelicans, and Lauri Markkanen’s undersold rookie season.
Host Mark Karantzoulis (@mkhoops) takes a look at the upcoming schedule for the Bulls and how that may play a part in the tanking effort, and if Mirotic still being on the team up until the trade deadline will cost the Bulls a great opportunity to improve their draft pick.
Later on the show, Fred Pfeiffer (@cbefred) stops by to discuss the status of the Big Red Bus.
Topics discussed include: How Fred Hoiberg will manage the rotation with LaVine back, whether LaVine will help a tanking cause, what his next contract may look like, as well as those Nikola Mirotic trade rumors.
Topics discussed include: Dunn and Markkanen exceeding expectations changing the perception of the trade, lasting concerns that may still exist in the deal, when will full impact of the trade be realised, if Bulls fans should revisit their angst against the front office, and much more.
