The time has come for NBA free agency to officially open up, and the Chicago Bulls will have plenty of work to do.

The first order of business should not take long, as multiple reports have stated the Bulls are set to lock up Zach LaVine on a max contract extension. As soon as the clock hits 6PM ET, the Bulls will meet with LaVine to hammer out a deal.

As soon as we’re all assured LaVine stays in Chicago, then the real fun begins. The Bulls have a few needs this offseason in terms of free agent possibilities, and could also look to pull off a trade or two.

Chicago will have a couple of tools at their disposal, as well, in order to fill out their roster and add some veteran talent.

The Chicago Bulls are set up well to add talent when the NBA Free Agency period officially opens up.

One of those tools is a $10 million mid-level exception, which they can use on a free agent. This is a huge advantage to hold, especially when looking at some of the Bulls’ needs.

Marc Eversley and Arturas Karnisovas are prioritizing finding another rim protector to back up Nikola Vucevic, first and foremost. The team is also in need of some three-point shooting, ideally coming from the wing.

Another option the Bulls have is to trade Coby White, and they could choose to use their $5 million trade exception in that deal also.

As rumors and reports continue to fly, the Bulls should be prioritizing a few select names after signing LaVine. There are three players, in particular, who would fit very well in Chicago.
