As the preseason nears, fans are eager to see just how different these Chicago Bulls will be. How could they potentially surprise us in 2018-2019?
The summer is finally over, and that means NBA fans are gearing up to watch their respective teams take the court in the preseason very soon. After a somewhat eventful summer, the Chicago Bulls will kick off their preseason action September 30th at home against the New Orleans Pelicans.
While not the centerpiece of this article, the Pelicans will certainly be mentioned later on. Keep them fresh in your memory.
The front office in Chicago made sure everybody knew they were going to take a “wait and see” approach when it came to free agency this summer. Following a successful NBA Draft haul which saw them take Wendell Carter Jr. out of Duke at no. 7 overall and then Boise State’s Chandler Hutchison at no. 22, the Bulls were set to hang out for a bit at the start of July.
That all changed when Zach LaVine signed an offer sheet with the Sacramento Kings. Then, dominos fell a little faster. LaVine stayed in Chicago and was later joined by hometown kid Jabari Parker. Suddenly, some fans had a little to get excited about.
Is Parker the missing piece? Absolutely not. There are still many steps to go in the rebuild. But, the Bulls could definitely surprise us this season. How could they surprise? Let’s dive in.
