Chicago Bulls draft Wendell Carter Jr. and Chandler Hutchison

Published

on

The guys are back after last night’s NBA Draft, they kick off the show by talking about the NBA Draft as a whole and who the Bulls ultimately decided to take at No. 7. Were the guys disappointed with the Bulls inability to move up to No. 3 to take Luka Doncic or Jaren Jackson Jr.? Locked On Bulls discusses why it was almost impossible for the Bulls to trade with Atlanta without overpaying. The guys also discuss the hilarity of NBA reporters tweeting out picks before they were announced, Michael Porter Jr. slipping nearly out of the lottery, and their most surprising and disappointing picks of the night.

Locked On Bulls dives into what Wendell Carter Jr. can be for a rebuilding Bulls team. Was Carter the safe pick at No. 7 and does he have star potential? The guys discuss what they like about Carter, what they think he can be, and how he fits next to Lauri Markkanen. Locked On Bulls destroys the Carlos Boozer comparison, all the while comparing him to other big men in this draft. The guys also discuss the weaknesses Carter will have to improve on and his overall outlook for the future.

Locked On Bulls talks about the most bizarre story of the NBA Draft, the complete shutdown of Chandler Hutchison and the rumored promise of taking him at No. 22. The guys try and convince you to look beyond the smoke of the promise and what Hutchison can bring to the table. The guys also get into a debate about what was left on the board at No. 22, not doing their due diligence, and also the value you can get at No. 22.

The final segment, Locked On Bulls discusses one of the biggest blunders by the Bulls last night. The Bulls decided to hold their post-draft press conference while the first round of the draft was still going on. Jordan and Matt sound off on why it only solidifies the argument of how the Bulls feel about second round picks and trying to get back into the draft. Who were some of the players that dropped to the second round who the Bulls could have taken a flyer on? All of this and so much more on Locked On Bulls.

Chicago Bulls signing Jabari Parker would make little to no sense

Published

on

Locked On Bulls spends the entire episode breaking down the rumors about the Bulls ties to restricted free agents Rodney Hood, Jabari Parker, and a possible deal with Oklahoma City Thunder to take on Carmelo Anthony. The guys try and convince listeners that Jabari Parker does not fit on the Bulls, how much money he’s going to command, and why the Bulls already have a mirror image of Parker on their roster. If Parker’s deal is rescinded by the Bucks and an OKC deal falls through, will the Bulls actually sign Parker?

The guys spend some time talking about the Bulls rescinding David Nwaba’s qualifying offer, what it means in terms of negotiation with Nwaba, the likelihood that he is back on the roster next season, and what kind of market is still available for Nwaba. The guys briefly discuss Rodney Hood as a possibility the Bulls are looking into, but how it’s a gamble.

The guys wrap up the show talking about what they would need from Oklahoma City Thunder in order to take on Carmelo Anthony’s contract. The guys explain that Carmelo will not play a minute for the Bulls, whether or not it would be a win if OKC took Cristiano Felicio’s contract, and if there is any interest in Terrance Ferguson or Hamidou Diallo in a package? Jordan and Matt give their ultimate ‘must-haves’ in a deal. All of this and so much more on Locked On Bulls.

Do Bulls fans believe Zach LaVine will live up to his potential?

Locked On Bulls is back with a full hour of Bulls mailbag, a unique mailbag this week which includes the reaction from Bulls fans about Zach LaVine’s signing. The guys run through the text messages and voicemails left this weekend whether Bulls fans are in love with bringing LaVine back or skeptical that the front office overpaid.

Some of the voicemails include wondering if Bulls fans realize their own hypocrisy sometimes, how long will we have to wait to figure if this deal was advantageous for both the Bulls and Zach LaVine, what is the likelihood that LaVine turns into an all-star, who are some of the other NBA players in the past who have had ACL tears and gone on to have great careers, and what LaVine is going to bring to the table returning for a full season.

The guys debate whether or not bringing back Zach LaVine was the Bulls front office hedging their bets on free agency over the next two summers? Do Bulls fans have faith that a superstar (or two) will want to team up to play in Chicago with or without LaVine? The guys discuss both scenarios. Some of the other topics touched on including an extended conversation about playoff reconstruction and whether Butler x Irving was the Bulls front office grand scheme all along. All of this and so much more on Locked On Bulls.
