Speculation is swirling around the future of the Bulls’ Big Three, as NBA insider Sam Smith suggests that significant changes could be on the horizon. While attending the Draft Combine, Smith overheard insider chatter indicating that the Bulls may be ready to move on from their current trio of Nikola Vucevic, DeMar DeRozan, and Zach LaVine.
The Bulls face several contractual situations that could impact the makeup of their core. Vucevic, who joined the team in 2020, is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. DeRozan has one more year left on his contract worth $28.6 million, and LaVine’s contract runs through 2026-2027, with a player option for the final year.
Despite finishing 9th in the regular season, the Bulls fell short of making the playoffs after being eliminated in the play-in tournament. The desire for change within the organization is apparent, and fans eagerly await any potential developments as the offseason unfolds.
While the future of the Bulls’ Big Three remains uncertain, one thing is clear: the organization is poised to make significant moves in its quest for success.
