The Chicago Bulls front office led by the new Executive Vice President Arturas Karnisovas has to decide on the direction the team is going to take for the coming years. According to the Bulls legend Scottie Pippen, the team should focus on the draft instead of free agency.

“I believe that you have to do well through the draft,” the six-time NBA champion said. “I think that the Bulls success in the past came through the draft. Myself, Michael, Horace Grant were the original champions of that city. Most of us came through the draft.

I just think that they’re gonna have to be able to find the right talent through the draft. It doesn’t look like Chicago is a destination for free agents. It’s never the way that they’ve been built. So I don’t expect that to happen.”
