4 Bulls Playing Their Final Season in Chicago

As the Chicago Bulls finish the remainder of their 2023-24 NBA schedule, don't be surprised if these four players aren't back in the Windy City next season.

Alex Caruso was another name floated around in trade rumors this season. It even got to the point where ESPN's Ramona Shelburne reports that the Golden State Warriors "had very serious conversations" about acquiring the talented guard from the Bulls.

It isn't difficult to see why the Warriors — or any team — would love to roster Caruso. The 29-year-old veteran does a little bit of everything. He's averaging 9.8 PTS/3.8 REB/2.8 AST/1.3 STL/1.2 BLK through his first 46 games this season, also putting up a career-high 1.7 threes made on 39.9% shooting.

With Caruso signed through 2024-25 with a $9.89 million cap hit, I expect teams to call the Bulls again this offseason. If Chicago is truly heading toward a rebuild, it makes sense for management to unload Caruso's expiring contract — especially when his low cap hit could likely increase the return from championship contenders.

Caruso is beloved by Bulls fans, but that won't be enough to keep him in town beyond the 2023-24 schedule.
