Bulls Beat #377 – Tank on

Without Kris Dunn, the Bulls have gone 0-3 and are likely to pile up more losses going forward.   Zach LaVine has played poorly, and Niko Mirotic will likely be gone soon things could remain ugly the rest of the year.   Check out the Bulls Beat on Itunes or via RSS: http://feeds.feedburner.com/BullsBeatPodcastsChicagoBullseye

Bulls Beat #376 – No Defense

LaVine’s defense slows the Bulls against the Warriors.  Kris Dunn is in the concussion protocol, and the Bulls may have changed their minds about what to do with their cap room.   Also, just as a heads up, I realize the audio quality of the show is not where it needs to be.  I’m hoping to get some new equipment in the next couple weeks to help out with that.   Also, correction, it was Brian Windhurst not Adrian Wojarnowski reporting the Bulls may use cap room to take on salary in exchange for picks.
