Jevon Carter

The Bulls made the surprising decision last offseason to sign Jevon Carter in free agency. Carter is a solid role player who can play both guard positions, hit open shots, and defend at a reasonable level. But he was the last player Chicago needed.

The Bulls already had Alex Caruso and Ayo Dosunmu, who are just better versions of the same player. On top of that, Chicago has Coby White and Zach LaVine in their backcourt, leaving no place for Carter. This team had so many guards at certain points that Caruso was playing small forward for significant stretches of the season.

Considering the fact that Lonzo Ball is potentially coming back next season, Jevon Carter will not have a role in the rotation. Therefore, Chicago should use him and his $6.5 million salary in a trade in the offseason.

The Bulls don't have too many matching salaries that they can use in potential trades. Sure, they have LaVine and Vucevic's monstrous deals but no team really wants those. Carter, on the other hand, can get you a decent player if he is combined with another asset.

The former West Virginia product is not a bad player and he should have a role in the NBA on another team but he is just not a good fit on this deep and talented backcourt in Chicago.
