Pippen Aint Easy

● By Aaron Kellerstrass
The Chicago Bulls enter a pivotal offseason that will decide the immediate and long-term future of the team. They could try to tear the roster down, allow DeMar DeRozan to walk, trade Zach LaVine and start a rebuild around what is left. The Bulls could also choose to run it back, hopeLonzo Ball can get and stay healthy and show that the short run they had with him wasn’t a fluke. Either way, they’ll be hoping for luck in the 2024 NBA Draft, where they do have a small chance of landing the number one pick. But it’s far more likely they stick at pick 11, which is what happens in this Mock Draft. We used the draft simulator to decide the order and the San Antonio Spurs got lucky again.
