Chicago bulls have long had questions about the guard’s position. Some hope that Kobe White’s choice of 2019 NBA draft could fill the position, but others question him because of his style of playing “first result.” Looking at White’s game this year, he seems to be putting more effort into being a versatile defender than just a dynamic goal scorer from the bench. Now it comes with ups and downs, but maybe Artūras Karnišovas and Marc Eversley have seen enough.
Trade rumors revolve around Pelicans scout Lonzo Ball, and the bulls, among other teams, are interested.
Lonzo Ball is set to enter a limited free agency in the upcoming off-season, so why would the bulls trade for him? Well, its value has never been lower and it has a lot of potential. Lonzo plays fast, just as they love to make the new look of the Chicago Bulls, so he could potentially be a playmaker and perimeter defender they need. It would also give the Bulls a good look at the 23-year-old to determine if it’s worth keeping him, instead of offering him an insane amount of money in a limited free agency.
Ball’s scoring is a bit rough, as he is a 39% field shooter in his career, a 33% three-point shooter and, worst of all, a 43% free-throw shooter. But before this season, he showed steady improvements in all three categories as his career progressed. The Bulls would not look for him as a dynamic goal scorer, but instead serve as a leading facilitator to help players like Zack LaVine, Patrick Williams and Wendell Carter Jr. get the best possible looks and be in the right place. the right time.
At the moment, this is just a rumor, but it will certainly be an interesting situation to observe in the coming months.
