Going into summer league, no player was going to have more eyes (of Chicago Bulls fans) on him than Marko Simonovic. He is a 6’11 center/power forward from Montenegro and second-round draft pick of the Chicago Bulls in 2020.
The Chicago Bulls have an urgent need in their frontcourt to bolster depth behind Nikola Vucevic – especially with Lauri Markkanen on his way out. While they did sign Tony Bradley earlier this summer, Simonovic is still poised to have a significant role on the team this season within their frontcourt rotation. Marko Simonovic’s performance in his Summer League debut for the Chicago Bulls is cause for optimism despite the team’s loss.
