Matt Peck Sports Feed Bulls Draft

Locked On Bulls Co-Host Matt Peck joined CLTV’s Sports Feed on Sunday night to talk about the Bulls’ 2018 NBA Draft selections with Josh Frydman and Jarrett Payton.

Among the topics of their conversation were the front office’s decision to “play it safe” by choosing Wendell Carter Jr. over Michael Porter Jr., Carter’s fit with Lauri Markkanen in the Bulls frontcourt and what to expect for Chandler Hutchison on the defensive end.

In their second segment, the guys talk about where the Bulls rebuild stands after its first year, particularly with the new core that resulted from the Jimmy Butler trade and the 2018 draft.

You can watch both of the Sports Feed segments below!

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 If Parker’s deal is rescinded by the Bucks and an OKC deal falls through, will the Bulls actually sign Parker?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.
