The Chicago Bulls have a big man problem, and they know it. What would give it away? Well, just recently, Jake Fischer of Bleacher Report wrote that the Bulls are a possible landing spot for two notable big men this offseason.

Fischer said that both Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert and impending free agent center Mitchell Robinson are possibilities for the Bulls this summer. Of course, Gobert would come via trade and Robinson by way of a new deal.

Now, for the Bulls to get either one of those two, it would mean the end for veteran Nikola Vucevic in Chicago. So, if we put aside the inconsistencies of Vucevic and assume he sticks around, what’s left of this big man dilemma?

Beyond Vucevic, the Bulls had Tristan Thompson and Tony Bradley off the bench last year. Signing Thompson once he became available was supposed to fix the reserve spot, right? Well, it didn’t. Now, the Bulls could be in the market for a free agent to help fill the void.

The Chicago Bulls have to use free agency in order to find a backup big man.

Luckily, there are some solid names available in this year’s free agent pool. The 2022 free agent class isn’t a flashy one by any means, and there won’t be a whole lot of superstars on the move — at least, we think.

But, in terms of depth additions, there are a lot of options.

Chicago doesn’t seem to have much faith in former second-round pick Marko Simonovic, so they will likely address the void via free agency or the draft. Realistically, Chicago could do both, in order to find guys to back up both Vucevic and Patrick Williams.

So, who is available in this year’s free agent class? Let’s look at four possible big men the Bulls could bring in.
