I thought the Bulls would get swept but they're hitting on all cylinders tonight, holy cow. Giannis might have almost 30 but I still think the Bulls are playing good defense on him.16 point lead down to 7. Let’s see if the Bulls can close it out. Might need to keep the starters in the whole 4th quarter - Giannis has abused the 2nd unit all night.
Just gotta hope they trade Coby White in the off season so Ayo can move up in the rotationI think the playoffs thus far have somewhat answered your question. Not saying they won’t give him an extension/new contract at some point, but don’t think it will be a top priority. Ayo has had a nice first year (and is a great local story), but they’ve got a lot of money wrapped up in Ball and Caruso.
Regular season would be fine (without White), but for the playoffs I agree. Hope he doesn't have to move on, though you could definitely be right.Hope you are right, but I think Ayo’s 2nd contract is someplace other than the Bulls. When Ball comes back, minutes will be tough.
I’d also keep Derozan if I could…I would keep Ayo, Lonzo, and Williams blow the rest up. This is going nowhere.
Vooch might overtake Boozer for me as the biggest empty stat guy I've watched.
I like DeRozan but if you're blowing things up it makes sense to move on from him. On the wrong side of 30 and won't have more trade value than he does now. If the Vuc trade hadn't happened the Bulls could've made a very easy and quick pivot to rebuilding with youth. Imagine adding Franz Wagner (plus WCJ and another first rounder) to the young guys on the team...I’d also keep Derozan if I could…
