When it comes to the Bulls' trade bait this offseason, few have more value than Alex Caruso.

Caruso, 30, is the type of player that coaches dream of rostering. The veteran guard has demonstrated a never-say-die attitude ever since fighting his way into the NBA when he went undrafted in 2016. His tenacious demeanor makes him a thorn in the opposition's side at both ends of the floor.

What also gives Caruso value is his ability to do a little bit of everything. The ex-Texas A&M product averaged 10.1 points, 3.8 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.7 steals, and 1.0 blocks in 71 appearances with the Bulls last season. He also helped stretch the floor by averaging a career-high 1.9 threes made on 40.8% shooting.

The College Station, TX native's elite defense is yet another reason why the other 29 teams would love to have him in the lineup. Although his defense was always solid, Caruso has come into his own with back-to-back NBA All-Defensive team nods in the last two seasons.

Lastly, Caruso's contract is another factor that will cause interested parties to pick up the phone. He's set to carry a $9.89 million cap hit during the 2024-25 season, which is insanely cheap for what he brings to the table. Not only that, but he's also eligible for an extension, meaning he's more than just a rental player option.

Considering the solid return that he could net, don't be surprised if Caruso is one of the first Bulls who's moved this offseason.
