“The Bulls are in the process of a major overhaul, even if they don’t realize it yet,” stated Brian Windhorst from ESPN a few weeks ago.
Indications suggest that the Bulls are finally changing their direction, based on Shams Charania’s recent announcement, Chicago is increasingly open to trading Zach LaVine, generating interest from teams across the league.
With a 4-7 start to the season, the Bulls find themselves ranked in the bottom 10 league-wide in both offense and defense.
Adding to their difficulties, the Bulls’ most-used lineup has the lowest offensive and defensive ratings among all five-player combinations that have played at least 75 minutes together this season.
In fact, the combination of Coby White, Zach LaVine, DeMar DeRozan, Torrey Craig, and Nikola Vucevic is being outscored by 34.6 points per 46 minutes.
Clearly, the time has come to make changes.
Concerning LaVine’s future, the Lakers, Heat, and 76ers are expected to be among the teams showing interest in acquiring him, according to Shams.
