Bulls' Chris Walker: Inks contract with Bulls
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker agreed to a free-agent contract with the Bulls on Friday, Michael Scotto of The Associated Press reports.

Walker, once a highly prized recruit, has played for the G League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers since going undrafted in 2015. This past season, he averaged nearly six points and four rebounds in 13.2 minutes per game. While that production is nothing to write home about, the bouncy forward will hope to impress the Bulls during summer league.

Bulls' Nikola Mirotic: On hot seat heading into 2017-18 season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mirotic will have competition for playing time in the 2017-18 season after the Bulls selected Lauri Markkanen with the seventh overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.

Before worrying about Markkanen, Mirotic heads into the offseason as a restricted free agent, which means it's not entirely certain he'll remain in Chicago next season. If he does stay, though, Markkanen has a very similar skill set, and funny enough, very similar weak spots. Both players are able to extend the court beyond the arc as a power forward, but they also aren't reliable rebounders for their size and have serious questions on the defensive end. After three lackluster years from Mirotic in Chicago with the Bulls, the organization might be quick to pass the torch over to the younger stretch four while leaving Mirotic outside of the rotation.

Bulls' Lauri Markkanen: Heading to Windy City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Markkanen was selected by the Bulls with the seventh overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.

After a last-minute trade, Markkanen will join Zach Lavine and Kris Dunn as the newest additions to the Bulls' roster. Chicago ranked 24th in three-point shooting last season, so Markkanen's 42.3 percent shooting from beyond the arc will be heavily utilized next season as he embodies the ideal stretch four in today's league. The seven footer needs to work on rim protection, as he lacks a physical presence down low, but he'll have time to develop that craft behind Nikola Mirotic and Robin Lopez.

Bulls' Kris Dunn: Headed to Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Timberwolves have agreed in principle to a trade that will send Dunn along with Zach LaVine and the team's seventh overall pick to the Bulls for Jimmy Butler and the 16th pick, K.C Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.

It is a case of deja vu between these teams, as they almost completed a similar deal during last year's draft. Dunn was the main clog in that deal, as the team had high expectations for the fifth overall pick. However, he struggled a bit to maintain a consistent role in the team's rotation this year, which slightly lowered his value. However, he will have a fresh start in Chicago for a rebuilding Bulls' squad. He will presumably enter the year as the favorite to start at point guard.

Bulls' Zach LaVine: Dealt to Bulls
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LaVine was traded to the Bulls on Thursday as part of a deal that will bring Jimmy Butler to Minnesota, KC Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.

The Wolves nearly acquired Butler at the 2016 draft and have now finally pulled the trigger on a deal a year later. LaVine will head to Chicago, along with the No. 7 pick and Kris Dunn, while Butler and the No. 16 pick come back to Minnesota. LaVine, who is currently recovering from a torn ACL suffered in February, could miss the start of the 2017-18 season, but he'll likely be one of the Bulls' top offensive options once he returns.
