The Chicago Bulls are expected to revamp their roster this coming NBA season and retain only a couple of players. Kris Dunn has often been mentioned as someone who will likely be traded but it looks like most of the players on the roster are going to be made available. However, not to be included in that list are two names - Wendell Carter Jr. and Lauri Markkanen. 

According to The Athletic, this is the situation now humming over at the Chicago camp. Aside from Dunn, this could also mean that Zach LaVine is also available to interested teams. The 24-year-old is undoubtedly one of the big names at the Bulls camp, someone who was actually their best player last NBA season. He held averages of 23.7 points and shot 46.7-percent from the floor.

Acquired from the Minnesota Timberwolves in that trade that involved Dunn, Jimmy Butler, Justin Patton and the rights to Markkanen, the two-time NBA Slam Dunk contest winner was unable to finish the season after suffering a leg injury. If there is one thing any interested team would have to look into, it would be the overall health of the 13th overall pick of the 2014 NBA Draft since he has had several issues tied up to his lower extremities. 

Seeing how LaVine has come into his own, multiple teams are likely to inquire about what the Bulls want. But there are other players who could be of interest as well such as Otto Porter Jr. The third overall pick of the 2013 NBA Draft was acquired by Chicago from the Washington Wizards in exchange for Jabari Parker, Bobby Portis, and a protected 2023 second-round pick. Like LaVine, he is another player that can deliver when utilized properly, Fansided reported.

The Bulls are obviously trying to find a new young mix to comprise the franchise under the watch of head coach Jim Boylen. Also, LaVine and Porter Jr. do carry expensive contracts worth about $112 million between them – big money that could aid them in getting new players or even superstars to be the new face of the franchise. 

With the hefty sums that both players carry, the Bulls could make a go at some of the high profile players like Anthony Davis or even Kyrie Irving. There are plenty of possibilities for the Bulls as they try to tinker and form a more competitive team compared to the 2018-19 NBA season.
