The Chicago Bulls could go after free agent wing Reggie Bullock

Since being a first-round pick out of North Carolina back in 2013, Reggie Bullock has played for a total of five teams in the NBA. It wasn’t until about four years in that Bullock received a chance to consistently start, but he’s been exactly that for the last few seasons. He’s developed into a starting wing for a couple of teams and became the Knicks’ starting small forward in 2020-2021.

Last season, Bullock averaged 10.9 points on 44 percent shooting, 3.4 rebounds and 1.5 assists. He also shot the three ball at a 41 percent clip.

The 6-foot-6 wing is now 30 years old and is coming off a season in which he was paid $4.2 million — which is quite a bargain for someone who ended up starting 64 games last year.

The Bulls definitely need to revamp their wings. Chicago dealt Otto Porter Jr. and Chandler Hutchison last year, and this summer they will see Garrett Temple and Denzel Valentine enter free agency as well.

If the Bulls wanted to use Bullock as a temporary starter at the three spot, they would have some time to bring along a rookie either this year or next year by locking up the free agent on a 3-year deal. This is arguably the weakest spot for the Bulls; or the spot where they could use a stud. Bullock is by no means a stud, but he will be fine to start there until Chicago finds that franchise wing they have needed since losing Jimmy Butler.
