Chicago Bulls Front Office
The only option on the table right now for Lauri Markkanen is to accept the Bulls' qualifying offer and hope he has a healthy and productive 21-22, featuring for a team that hardly values him.
The Bulls are all in trying to win 50 games this year, and DeMar DeRozan will help considerably. There is a rung right below greatness, where some swell players hang out, but you can lose track of them.
This is not a team built for development, but to win. Not to win a title, per se, but certainly to win more games than it loses, and for a good number of those victories to leave an attractive stamp on the broader basketball imagination.
