Over the course of the last several months, the Chicago Bulls have totally renovated their front court. Arturas Karnisovas and Marc Eversley have decided that only one way is the way to go: up.
These two have finally breathed new life into this Bulls franchise and given fans plenty of hope for the future. The real crux of it came when the Bulls pulled off a deal for former Orlando Magic center, All Star Nikola Vucevic.
The Bulls were back on the map and had a front office that would go to great lengths in order to finally put together a winning team.
Recently, veteran forward Lamarcus Aldridge was cleared to return to basketball after retiring due to an irregular heartbeat. Aldridge had reportedly been interested in signing with the Bulls, which would have been a phenomenal move. He ultimately chose the Brooklyn Nets, similar to another Bulls target, Paul Millsap.
Where do the Chicago Bulls turn for front court depth now that Lamarcus Aldridge is off the market?
With both Millsap and Aldridge off the market now, the Bulls must try to fill out their front court via other options.
Right now, the team has Vucevic, Patrick Williams, Tony Bradley and Marko Simonovic as their primary big men. Adding a veteran to this group would not only solidify their front court depth, but cap off the offseason, putting their roster into more of a final state.
While Aldridge was a much bigger prize, the Bulls still have a few options in free agency. There are some guys still searching for jobs — some who have plenty of experience and would offer the Bulls some veteran leadership as well.
One of the following three big men might make sense for Karnisovas and Eversley.
