For many NBA seasons, the Chicago Bulls have been searching for answers in their backcourt and while they have found success with Zach LaVine and Coby White the last couple of seasons, Chicago has hit yet another roadblock in the way of their potential success.
On June 10, Coby White underwent successful surgery on his left shoulder to repair a torn labrum and has been ruled out in a 4-6 month timespan. Four months from the time he had the surgery put us at the middle of October, which is pushing things for White to be available to begin the 2021-22 season and 6 months pushes White back to a mid-December, early January possible return.
All-in-all, it seems like the Bulls will be without Coby White to begin the 2021-22 season, which is a big loss since he was expected to take on the reins as the Bulls’ starting point guard. Now, Chicago will have to look elsewhere for backcourt production, which is why they could be busy both in free agency and in the trade market.
It is no secret that GM Marc Eversley and the Bulls’ front-office want to add an impactful point guard to their rotation, so could they possibly consider Kendrick Nunn? The soon-to-be 26-year-old guard has spent the first two seasons of his career in Miami and is set to become a restricted free agent this offseason.
Miami could have their attention on other high-level talents this offseason, which leaves Nunn as an interesting free agent that could be on the Bulls radar given his athleticism and scoring abilities from the point guard position. Will Chicago look to pull off a sign-and-trade for Kendrick Nunn this offseason?
