The Chicago Bulls enter the 2021 NBA offseason with a number of things needing to be addressed. The same can be said for the Philadelphia 76ers after they lost in the Eastern Conference semifinals in frustrating fashion.
Chicago Bulls head coach Billy Donovan has significant experience leading successful teams at both the collegiate and professional levels. Naturally, he has connections across the league in terms of coaching relationships and player relationships.
The Chicago Bulls upcoming offseason is crucial for both the short and long-term success of the franchise. Not only are they coming off of a disappointing season in which they missed the playoffs, but they’re also officially on the clock to convince Zach LaVine he should sign a long-term extension.
Especially knowing that they won’t have a spot in the NBA Draft Lottery this year, the Chicago Bulls have to place a very large emphasis on finding their way to a point guard solution by way of free agency or a trade.

The day that a lot of Chicago Bulls fans have waited for arrived on June 22 with the 2021 NBA Draft Lottery. A possibility that the Bulls could retrieve their first-round draft pick back does exist on the night of June 22, but the chances are slim.
The Chicago Bulls may be one trade away from a big three, and it’s all thanks to the Philadelphia 76ers. The 76ers are one loss away from failing to meet expectations yet again, trailing the Atlanta Hawks 3-2 in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
It was just recently that the 23rd anniversary of the iconic crossover move by Michael Jordan sealed the 1998 NBA championship for the Chicago Bulls.

Luc Longley was one of the absences in lastyear's docu-series 'The Last Dance' that followed Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls during their 1997/98 season. The Australian player won three titles with the Bulls, where he played from 1994 through 1998.
