Who wants to join this mess?
Nobody likes to lose. Even if you’re getting paid a ton of money to do it. So who would honestly want to come to the Bulls, where losing has become so commonplace over the last several years? Year after year, this team seems to be in the midst of a rebuild. One of these days, they need to start taking the next step.

The problem is, at this point, they look no further along in the rebuild than they did when they first started. Sure they might have some young, talented players, but they have not shown nearly the improvement that fans were hoping for.
There could be a lot of reasons for that. First, they are getting used to a new coaching style and offense (or whatever it is Boylen calls it). They also have had some injuries to work through with Kris Dunn, Lauri Markkanen, Bobby Portis, and most recently Wendell Carter Jr.
So which of the major free agents are likely to sign up to perpetually lose game after game?
All of the players listed above are extremely competitive and want to win championships. They can also get max deals with teams that are much more competitive than the Bulls. So with the money be relatively equal, why join a losing proposition?
