How does Bledsoe's extension affect Bulls free agent point guard pursuit this summer? - Locked On Bulls

Locked On Bulls is back to recap the Bulls loss to the Pacers last night and their weekly segment of Bulls Mailbag including topics such as power ranking the bottom four teams (Knicks, Cavaliers, Suns, Bulls) core, hypothetical question about the Bulls not taking Zion and why they would consider not, NBA’s point guard free agent market and how Eric Bledsoe’s contract extension changes things, and a look at the Bulls bench.

The guys dive right into the Bulls game from last night where they came up short against one of the NBA’s best teams over the last few weeks in a loss to the Indiana Pacers, 105-96. The guys talk about how the Pacers were able to slow the Bulls tempo down and restrict Lauri Markkanen and Otto Porter as three-point threats. The guys discuss some critical mistakes in the fourth quarter that tipped a fairly tight game in the Pacers direction. The guys mention Robin Lopez’s effective night as well as a difficult night shooting for the Bulls. The guys wrap up by mentioning Kris Dunn’s performance and how they didn’t expect the Bulls to leave Indianapolis winners on Tuesday.

The guys spend the rest of the show taking your mailbag questions on their weekly episode of Locked On Bulls mailbag. You can drop the show texts and voicemails at (331)-979-1369. Some of the topics on today’s show include asking Jordan and Matt to power rank the bottom four teams in the NBA’s current young cores and their future potential (Knicks, Cavaliers, Bulls, Suns).

Hypothetically speaking, is there any scenario in which the Bulls would consider trading out of the No. 1 pick and forfeiting the opportunity to draft Zion Williamson? How does Bucks point guard Eric Bledsoe’s new contract extension shift the free agent market this summer? – (bonus: the guys play a quick game of Bulls FA Pursuit: Yes, Interested, No). The guys also discuss some of the pieces to the Bulls bench and what decisions the front office will have to make this summer and why it relays back to their point about how crucial this offseason really is. All of this and so much more on Locked On Bulls.

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got
    to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.

The guys move on to looking around the NBA as the season winds down and the playoffs rapidly approach. Looking at the Eastern Conference first, which matchups seem like they could be the most intriguing in the first round? Who will make it out of the Nets, Pistons, Heat, and Magic for the last three spots? Is Kemba Walker’s time in Charlotte all but over and where are some likely free agent destinations for him? The guys circle around to the Western Conference where they talk about each matchup being equally as competitive in the first round.

The guys have a discussion on some of the teams who just missed out on the playoffs including the Sacramento Kings and how that relates to the Bulls plans next season. The guys talk about rookie Marvin Bagley III and how the Kings have managed his season this year. Why is it important to the Bulls? The guys will tell you. They also get into a conversation about Wendell Carter Jr.’s potential in year two and some of the possibilities we might see from him with the additions of a healthy Zach LaVine, Lauri Markkanen, Otto Porter Jr., and summer moves this off-season.

Locked On Bulls is back from the weekend, the guys briefly discuss Bulls-Raptors, Walt Lemon and JaKarr Sampson signings, a game of Would You Rather? Bulls roster edition, coaching search, and a surprise team in on AD this summer?

The guys kick off the episode talking about the Bulls recent signings of Walt Lemon Jr. and JaKarr Sampson to help close out the season. The guys discuss Lemon’s first game against the Raptors on Saturday and what Sampson can bring in the final few games. The guys wonder if the signings come out of basic necessity, are good faith measures for good seasons in the G-League, or something else?

Locked On Bulls plays a short game of “Would You Rather” Bulls roster edition. If you had the choice to only keep one of the following three players, who would it be and why: Ryan Arcidiacono, Shaq Harrison, or Wayne Selden Jr.? The guys talk about the impact all three guys have had this season, what the Bulls will look like fully healthy next season and how that will impact their decision on keeping fringe players around.

The guys dive into the March Madness games from the weekend with a specific conversation on Duke prospect R.J. Barrett after their loss on Sunday. Have their opinions changed at all on Barrett as a possible option? The guys lay out some strengths and weaknesses they saw from the tournament in his game.

To wrap up the show, Locked On Bulls talks briefly about former Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg took the job at Nebraska officially. How does that impact a potential Bulls coaching search this summer?

Bulls crawling to the finish line as injuries, losses pile up - Locked On Bulls

Locked On Bulls is back with a fresh episode, the guys recap last night’s loss to the Toronto Raptors without Zach LaVine, Otto Porter Jr., and Kris Dunn. The guys spend the second half of the show taking mailbag questions, texts, tweets, and voicemails in their weekly episode of Locked On Bulls mailbag.

Some of the topics include whether the Bulls will look to draft a big man in the second round, some prospects available, would they take the risk on Bol Bol if he slides to the end of the first-early second round, and a scenario of trading up with the Atlanta Hawks for the No. 2 pick.

The guys talk about last night’s game with the idea that LaVine, Porter, and Dunn were out and the Bulls only dressed nine players. Lauri Markkanen only played 16 minutes in the game and left with ‘illness’ in the third quarter. Should the Bulls think about shutting him down for the rest of the season?

The guys talk about the time he did spend on the floor last night and how he was more aggressive but just missing shots. The guys also mention how the Raptors seem to be walking through this game as told by the final score, they mention the final 90 seconds and give props to Shaq Harrison and Wayne Selden Jr.

Should the Bulls be looking to draft a backup big man with their recently acquired second-round pick in the upcoming draft? Would you take the risk on NBA prospect Bol Bol if he started to slide to the end of the first round? What would it take to trade up from pick No. 4 to No. 2? All of these voicemails are answered and so much more on today’s episode of Locked On Bulls.
