The Chicago Bulls are in a tough situation this offseason. They are a non-playoff team without much cap space or intriguing young talent. They have an aging, injury-prone, and expensive roster and for some reason they still seem opposed to rebuilding. It seems like the most likely scenario this summer is for the Bulls to re-sign DeMar DeRozan and Patrick Williams and run it back next season. What is the word for doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results?

That doesn't mean, however, that the Bulls can't make improvements to the roster on the free agent or trade market. In fact, they could even target a few familiar faces. Here are a few former Bulls players who would be excellent additions to the roster for next season.

Kris Dunn

The 30-year-old combo guard spent three seasons in Chicago after he was acquired from Minnesota as part of the Jimmy Butler deal in 2017. His time with the Bulls was largely underwhelming as he struggled with efficiency on the offensive end and his shot failed to improve.

Offensively, Dunn is still not a perfect player. But, he is an improved shooter. His calling card, however, is his defense. He managed to turn himself into a defensive specialist and one of the best perimeter defenders in the league.

After spending the last two seasons with the Utah Jazz, Dunn is an unrestricted free agent this summer. He should be gettable for Chicago on a team-friendly deal.

His skill set is similar to Alex Caruso's. So, he could be an insurance for him if the Bulls finally want to move on from Caruso in exchange for draft assets and young players.
