Grading Bulls’ strange decision to use final roster spot on Goran Dragic

The Chicago Bulls have finally granted us sweet release from the anticipation of further free agency news and filled out the 15th and final roster spot for the upcoming 2022-23 season. Unfortunately, that roster spot was used to acquire Goran Dragic, yet another guard who will have a hard time finding minutes in the rotation.

Bulls: Dalen Terry makes strong first Summer League impression

After being passed on 17 times in the 2022 NBA Draft, Dalen Terry has made it his personal mission to prove his doubters wrong and become a top player from his rookie class. That tenacity isn’t exclusive to other teams though, as Terry brought his best stuff to the Chicago Bulls‘ first Summer League practice.

Bulls free agency rumors: so this is it?

Bulls free agency rumors: so this is it?

Photo by Michael Reaves/ alternatively: run it blech We’ve come to the point in 2022 free agency that takes hold sometime after every NBA transaction period begins: the Bulls not doing much of anything, and the delusional rationalizing that they’re just saving up for some big move. The new-ish AKME regime has surprised us in the past. There was the 2021 trade deadline, and then the 2021 offseason, where the Bulls both struck decisively fast and also were creative late in the process. But after the Lauri Markkanen trade, which was another use of creativity but also...

How blockbuster Rudy Gobert trade impacts Bulls

Although the Chicago Bulls had been pegged as the favorites to land star center Rudy Gobert via trade, the Minnesota Timberwolves surprised many by pulling the trigger on a deal to land the French big man. He joins Karl-Anthony Towns in what should quickly become the most dynamic frontcourt pairing in the NBA if all […] How blockbuster Rudy Gobert trade impacts Bulls - Pippen Aint Easy - Pippen Aint Easy - A Chicago Bulls Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Cash Considerations Podcast: At least Zach LaVine is back

the rest? meh The Bulls re-signed Zach LaVine to a max deal, but the rest of free agency has been disappointing thus far with deals for only Andre Drummond and Derrick Jones Jr. As other teams make big moves around them, where do the Bulls stand and what else can they do? Will they actually be willing to go into the luxury tax? How will they be able to compete next season? Jason, Ricky and others discuss all of this on a special free agency episode on Spotify Live.

Bulls: Updated depth chart after day 2 of free agency

With the Chicago Bulls left scrapping up any talent they can find, it’s a miracle that this offseason has gone as well as it has thus far. With the luxury tax hovering over their heads, the front office has scrapped together the best deals they possibly could to secure the team’s future.

Grading Derrick Jones Jr.’s unexpected return to the Bulls

As the Chicago Bulls look to continue improving at the margins and rounding out this team’s depth, they could certainly have done worse than bringing Derrick Jones Jr. back on a team-friendly deal. Considering the Bulls had no real depth behind Patrick Williams at power forward, this move directly addresses a need and brings back […] Grading Derrick Jones Jr.’s unexpected return to the Bulls - Pippen Aint Easy - Pippen Aint Easy - A Chicago Bulls Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Zach will be back: Bulls re-sign LaVine to 5 year max contract

Zach will be back: Bulls re-sign LaVine to 5 year max contract

Photo by Jeff Haynes/NBAE via fifth year player option It sounds like last night’s meeting went well, as early on day-2 of free agency Klutch Sports’s head of PR Shams Charania announced that Zach LaVine is staying in Chicago. It’s for the full 5-year max LaVine was eligible for, over $215M, and the Bulls even put a little on top with making the 5th year a player option, so LaVine could potentially try free agency again when he’s 31. This isn’t a surprise if the Bulls were normal, but I am pleasantly surprised the Bulls didn’t try and negotiate and...

They sure took their time doing it, but the Chicago Bulls have officially made their first free agent acquisition of the offseason by picking up the four-time rebounding champ himself, Andre Drummond.

Bulls free agency: Chicago finally gets on the board with Andre Drummond

Photo by Jeff Haynes/NBAE via a big man There were a flurry of moves right at the start of free agency, but unlike last season, the Bulls were not among them. It took over four hours before the Bulls got on the board, and their first deal is with Andre Drummond, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports the deal is for two years and $6.6 million with a player option on Year 2, making it part of the mid-level exception. K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reported the interest in Drummond Thursday morning, and he also...

Durant has the Suns and Heat on top of his list, but the Nets will do what they can to get the best offer possible, per Woj. That likely isn’t coming from the Bulls, but a boy can dream. Back in reality, the Bulls have multiple needs to address in free agency, but the biggest priority is re-signing Zach LaVine. The good news is all signs point to LaVine getting a new max contract when free agency begins. The latest from K.C. Johnson at NBC Sports Chicago: Zach...
