Kris Dunn

When the season began, people began to wonder whether or not Kris Dunn was on the upswing. He had fallen pretty far out of favor with the fans over the last couple of years, but for some reason, Jim Boylen trusts him. Dunn has played significant minutes this year, despite the Bulls having a crowded back court.

So far on the season, Dunn is averaging 7.2 points, 3.5 rebounds, 3.4 assists and a team-high 2.1 steals per game. He is still one of the better defenders in Chicago and would offer another team some experience and depth at the position. This summer, Dunn’s qualifying offer is just over $7 million, which is fairly cheap to a potential contender needing help at point guard.

He isn’t the best shooter, but as someone a coach can trust to defend well and give a team meaningful minutes, Dunn would be a solid pickup.

Tomas Satoransky

Another guard amongst the crowded back court is Tomas Satoransky, who is a newcomer to Chicago. Thus far in his first season, he is posting 10.0 points, 5.4 assists, 3.8 rebounds and 1.4 steals per game.

One thing Satoransky does very well is shoot the ball from deep. Any team needing some help from beyond the arc would welcome is long distance shooting (37.8 percent this year). He’s also versatile in that he can play multiple positions, if need be. Satoransky has a contract that pays him an even $10 million annually for three years.

If the Bulls could add any type of future asset, like a late-first (unlikely) or a second-round pick while opening up cap space this summer, it wouldn’t be a bad idea — especially because of the overflow of guards on this team.
