This Bulls’ offseason is beneath a microscope and followers have considerations and questions.
On this version of the Bulls Discuss Pod, Bulls Insider Okay.C. Johnson and Tony Gill reply your offseason questions and considerations from an Insider’s perspective and a fan’s perspective.
The most important query poses, ought to the Bulls contemplate buying and selling Zach LaVine? Would the result can be the identical as once they traded Jimmy Butler?
LaVine is a two-time All-Star and is presently headed into the second yr of a five-year 5 million deal. He’s presently the identical age as Butler when he was traded and posted comparable stats as Butler, too.
Johnson mentioned the league being skeptical the Bulls and LaVine will full the settlement.
“Once we have been speaking initially of the episode in regards to the league-wide hypothesis of the ‘Large Three’ many of the hypothesis is centered on him (LaVine). There’s fairly a little bit of skepticism all through the league that the Bulls and LaVine are gonna end this five-year marriage they entered with that max contract.”
Gill mentions that the Bulls needed to signal LaVine regardless in the event that they wished to commerce him or maintain him long-term. However the query introduced up after he signed is will the Bulls be championship-contending through the size of LaVine’s contract?
“Do you see them contending inside this contract? And for those who’re sincere with your self, my reply again then was no. And for those who requested me immediately my reply can be no.”
The LaVine dialog begins on the 30:13 mark within the podcast.
