The Chicago Bulls had high aspirations for the 2021-2022 season. For part of the year, they looked like potential contenders in the NBA Finals. But injuries eventually led to her season. However, this team is capable of making noise in 2022-2023. Rapper Lil Dork even picked them to win the finals this year! But in all seriousness, the big man Nikola Vucevic is an important piece of the puzzle in Chicago.
And there could be a stretch on the horizon, according to the Chicago Sun Times.
Vucevic faced trade rumors early last season. In fact, the huge man admitted that he dealt with defensive issues in 2021-2022. But he has remained with the team, and a source told the Chicago Sun-Times there may be an extension of work.
Nikola Vucevic established himself as one of the best big guys in the NBA during his time with the Orlando Magic. However, it has not received much national attention due to the fact that Orlando is a small market. Many expected Vucevic to finally get the praise he deserved with the Bulls.
But injuries derailed his overall performance.
However, Chicago believes in his ability. They want to keep him on the team for the foreseeable future.
And Nikola Vosevich believes in the bull.
“I think we have the talent to keep up with all the teams in the East,” Vucevich said. “We think we have the pieces to build a successful group. All the guys are excited, so, yeah, I don’t see any reason to panic and break up the group.”
