Over the past few days, the NBA world has been buzzing with free agency rumors, news and deals being agreed to. One of the teams involved in a lot of rumors and reports prior to the free agency period, the Chicago Bulls, have been one of the more active teams around the league.

Only the Milwaukee Bucks have made more moves than the Bulls, who have completed a total of four free agency transactions in the last week.

Going into this period of the offseason, the Bulls were a franchise that had a couple of clear needs. First, as noted by general manager Marc Eversley, the Bulls had to find another rim protector to compliment Nikola Vucevic.

Second, the Bulls needed to find another bench scorer — preferably someone who can shoot the three ball. Just how well have they done in accomplishing their goals?

NBA free agency has taught us a few things about these Chicago Bulls, but also left us with some questions.

Some of the moves made, whether in free agency or the 2022 NBA Draft, have left us wondering what’s going to happen with Coby White. Now, that’s a separate conversation altogether, but we’ll address that in a little bit.

The Bulls have made four signings to round out their roster, first bringing in veteran big man Andre Drummond. Second, Chicago re-signed wing Derrick Jones Jr.

Of course, the biggest move made was the re-signing of All Star guard Zach LaVine on a max deal. He’ll now be in Chicago for a while, which was the top priority for this ball club during the summer.

Lastly, Chicago brought in journeyman point guard Goran Dragic to complete the roster.

Where does this team stand after their free agency moves? Just how well do these signings grade out? Let’s go through each one with an objective lens.
