This summer, the Chicago Bulls could engage in an offseason which is far different than fans are used to in recent years.

For a while now, Bulls fans have been accustomed to seeing their team be lesser players in free agency. Much of their dismay has come from long time brass Gar Forman and John Paxson getting in the way of potential free agents wanting to play in Chicago.

Let’s face it. The Bulls haven’t exactly been atop the list of most free agents. But, things are different now. New Vice President Arturas Karnisovas is a much more aggressive character and wants to win. He cares — a lot.

After pulling off a trade for All Star center Nikola Vucevic, the rest of the league should be put on notice that Chicago is no longer a laughing stock. The Bulls are ready to start winning, and their next step comes this summer with the draft and free agency.

The Chicago Bulls have to find competition at point guard in free agency

One of the focal points of the Bulls’ offseason is surely a the point guard position. Coby White has been a fun player to watch at times, but there are more instances than not where fans are wondering if he’s the right man for the job.

White functions more like a two guard at heart, and looks a little lost sometimes when running the offense. He’s more of a Ben Gordon than he is Kirk Hinrich, we’ll say.

This summer, the Bulls will have a lot more money to work with than they’re used to. A couple of contracts are coming off the books, and some decisions do have to be made about their own free agents. However, the Bulls will have money to go after a higher tier player if need be.

But, at the point guard position, they might not need to spend a ton of money. Finding someone to simply compete with White could be all they need. One of the following point guards could make sense for Chicago this summer, starting with a former Kansas product.
