With the 2021 NBA Draft concluded, the Chicago Bulls and the rest of the league can focus on the offseason ahead and the free agency market, one expected to revolve around the point guard position.
The Windy City club is no exception.
The Bulls have been tied to a number of names at the point guard position, largely because of Coby White’s sustained shoulder injury some months ago.
But also because Chicago is arguably the NBA team under the most pressure to win now, this season, after trading for Nikola Vucevic at last year’s trade deadline and with guard Zach LaVine entering the last year of his contract.
That being said, one name may make most sense among the rest this offseason, given the state of the Bulls; free-agent point guard Dennis Schroder, who was previously coached by Billy Donovan.
In some of his latest reporting for ESPN, insider Brian Windhorst touched on the upcoming offseason and how it will be impacted by the expected carousel-level movement at point guard.
When it came to Dennis Schroder, he immediately linked the Chicago Bulls, including one note on the head coach:
Dennis Schroder turned down a four-year, $84 million extension from the Lakers this winter and is an unrestricted free agent. And he could have options. Bulls coach Billy Donovan had success with Schroder in Oklahoma City and is believed to be interested in a possible reunion.
