Cash Considerations Podcast: Bulls quiet to start 2020 free agency

will there be more moves? The Bulls agreed to a deal with Garrett Temple to start free agency, but they’ve done almost nothing else as other teams have reshaped their rosters around the NBA. Jason and Ricky discuss whether this patient approach makes sense and go over what the Bulls have with their current roster. We express our desire to make at least a few more moves ahead of the 2020-21 season. We then move on to toss more bouquets at the Patrick Williams pick.

As expected, Denzel Valentine is back with Bulls on $4.7 million qualifying offer

As expected, Denzel Valentine is back with Bulls on $4.7 million qualifying offer

Photo by Joe Pinchin/NBAE via Once the Bulls decided to extend Denzel Valentine his $4.7 million qualifying offer, it was basically a foregone conclusion that he was going to sign it. Even with his skill set, there was little market for a 27-year-old restricted free agent with just 170 NBA games under his belt and little consistent production in those games. If he was an unrestricted free agent, he probably would have gotten the minimum, or maybe slightly more. Sure enough, Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium reported Saturday morning that Valentine has indeed...

Bulls reportedly agree to 1-year, $5 million deal with Garrett Temple

Bulls reportedly agree to 1-year, $5 million deal with Garrett Temple

Photo by Kevin C. Cox/ Bartelstein client! The Bulls were very quiet as free agency opened, but they got into the fray by agreeing to a one-year, $5 million deal with veteran wing Garrett Temple, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Temple became a free agent when the Nets declined his $5 million player option, and now he’s getting that exact same amount in Chicago. As of right now, we have to assume this is part of the Bulls’ $9.3 mid-level exception, but that could change depending on other moves. The 34-year-old is the definition of a journeyman. The...

Bulls sign Kansas’ Devon Dotson to 2-way deal

Bulls sign Kansas’ Devon Dotson to 2-way deal

he went undrafted When the Bulls’ pick came up at No. 44 in Wednesday night’s draft, I figured they’d go for a point guard or a draft-and-stash prospect. The Bulls indeed went the draft-and-stash route by taking Marko Simonovic, but they also added a point guard after the draft by snagging Kansas’ Devon Dotson. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski first reported the news in the immediate aftermath of the draft, and Bulls executive vice president of basketball operations Arturas Karnisovas confirmed Thursday morning that Dotson got a two-way contract. Dotson was born in Chicago...

The Clippers are among several teams expected to show interest in the soon-to-be-free-agent guard. Can also confirm Bulls will extend qualifying offer to Denzel Valentine, which...

NBA Trade rumors: Bulls capped out with Otto Porter Jr. opting in, but it’s trade season

Photo by Joe Pinchin/NBAE via trading starts Monday, free agency on Friday There was never much doubt about Bulls forward Otto Porter Jr. exercising his $28,489,239 player option for 2020-21. Sure enough, Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes reported Sunday night that Porter has indeed opted in for this upcoming season. Porter just suffered through a lost 2019-2020 season with Chicago. After a sluggish start to the campaign, the 27-year-old injured his foot just nine games in and missed about four months. He returned to play in five more games before the Bulls’ season ended in mid-March. The...

Should the Bulls pursue a trade for Russell Westbrook or Chris Paul?

Should the Bulls pursue a trade for Russell Westbrook or Chris Paul?

Photo by Jim Poorten/NBAE via both players are available A bomb dropped on the NBA just a week before the 2020 NBA Draft with the news that Russell Westbrook wants a trade from the Rockets.

There have already been a few teams thrown around as Westbrook suitors, including the Knicks, Clippers and Hornets. But what about the Bulls? Chicago is in a spot where everything should be on the table. There’s a new front office and coaching staff in place, and this franchise...
