The guys spend the majority of the episode discussing some of the more recent events from the Chicago Bulls season in year two of the rebuild. Tony talks about how trading for Otto Porter Jr. has put the Bulls in a position to exit the conversation on top tier free agents the next two summers and the guys discuss when the decision was made. Do the Bulls have a clear direction and plan for the rebuild heading into year three or four? Do they need to have the rebuild all mapped out right now?
The conversation continues by talking about what Zach LaVine's steady improvements since the month of November. What does Tony see in Zach LaVine's game that's different from the start of the season - most importantly, will it last? The guys discuss what LaVine's discussions will be like with Bulls management this summer and what he will demand as far as direction. Does Tony see a scenario where LaVine could ask out?
The guys talk about some of the building blocks around this team including the insertion of Otto Porter Jr., what it means for Chandler Hutchison's growth as a player, Kris Dunn's role with this team going into next season, and how Lauri Markkanen can use the remain games to continue to develop his game.
The guys talk about the point guard position and how the Bulls will address that need this summer, will it be through free agency or the draft? Jordan and Tony talk about the lottery positions, building chemistry equating to winning meaningless games, and what happens if the Bulls lose out on Zion and Ja Morant. The final conversation circles around Jim Boylen and if he's seen any growth from him as a head coach in his first few months interacting with him everyday. All of this and so much more on Locked On Bulls.
