Digging deeper into the best and worst moves made by the Chicago Bulls this offseason.
The Chicago Bulls have not been the same since Lonzo Ball’s injury. It’s been nearly two years since it happened and the Bulls have not recovered whatsoever. It’s finally time to admit that the Bulls’ experiment has not turned out as they had hoped. And that’s OK. What has not become a problem or something that Chicago will have to figure out is what their next move is going to be.
That’s something the Bulls had to start deciding this offseason. However, for one reason or another, even with the moves that the Bulls made this summer, their path forward isn’t exactly clear.
The Chicago Bulls are a fringe playoff team
Heading into the 2023-24 NBA season, the Bulls are a fringe playoff team. They have the talent on the roster to be a playoff team but that’s far from a certainty considering this team’s recent inconsistency and the rest of the competition in the Eastern Conference.
The question is, is being a fringe playoff team good enough for the Bulls? There’s little hope for this team taking a step forward, especially after inactivity this offseason, and you can make the argument that they may be stuck in mediocrity. But I suppose that’s a different conversation for another day.
Focusing on their offseason moves, which have them in this current predicament, we look back at their best and worst decisions.
