Bulls pull together their roster
The Bulls have made significant roster moves this offseason, an important step for a team that needs to improve from last year's first-round playoff exit.
By the numbers: The Bulls re-signed their most important free agent, star guard Zach LaVine, to a five-year, $215 million contract extension.
Flashback: The team's lack of size and outside shooting were on display last year after being easily dispatched by the Milwaukee Bucks, so Chicago picked up two veterans to help.
- Former All-Star center Andre Drummond signed a two-year contract after serving as a backup with the Brooklyn Nets last year.
- Another former All-Star, guard Goran Dragić, signed a one-year deal. The 36-year-old saw his best years with the Miami Heat.
- Dragić will back up Lonzo Ball, who is still recovering from a knee injury.
Meanwhile, the Bulls drafted guard Dalen Terry and signed undrafted forward Justin Lewis to round out the roster.
🏀 Justin's thought bubble: Did the Bulls get better? Maybe. Not sure the new veterans make this team a legitimate championship contender, but it's hard to watch big players sign (or get traded) elsewhere.
