Offseason Goal No. 2: Figure out a plan for the point guard position

Between Patrick Beverley, Ayo Dosunmu, Coby White, and Alex Caruso, the Chicago Bulls didn’t have a great backup plan at the point guard position this season. And that was a big mistake. Perhaps the Bulls felt good about Lonzo Ball’s chances at returning in-season but the fact that Chicago didn’t plan in case he didn’t is quite unfortunate. And it’s not something they can mess up this offseason.

There are already reports that Ball may not even be ready to return until the 2024-25 NBA season and if that is indeed so, that means the Bulls need to find the answer at the point guard position. If Chicago is going to have any chance at making it back to the NBA Playoffs next season, they’re going to need to find a full-time point guard.

That can be easier said than done but it’s probably the biggest personnel move that the team should look to make this offseason. Whether that’s a spot-starter or targeting a star at the position, it’s clear that someone from the outside is going to have to come to fortify the team’s lead-guard position.
