The Chicago Bulls had themselves an off-season. They started it off by drafting Coby White and Daniel Gafford, two prospects who fit into the archetype of successful NBA players. Neither may have the Zion-sequel superstar potential, but they both look to be guys who will stick in the league for many years.
The next step was free agency. Instead of setting a goal of landing an A level star and striking out, John Paxson decided to set his sights on more attainable role players. In doing so the Bulls landed the type of veterans who will add depth and help compliment their young core by showing them how to play a winning brand of basketball.
The Bulls also made some changes to Jim Boylen’s coaching staff. Adding Roy Rogers, known for his defensive mind, from the Houston Rockets; and Chris Fleming, known for his offensive mind, from the Brooklyn Nets. Fleming is a particularly interesting hire for a team that has a considerable amount of young offensive talent but is in a dire search for an offensive identity.
In the video breakdown below, we take a glimpse into the 2018-19 Brooklyn Nets offense and discuss just how some of these offensive sets may fit into how the Chicago Bulls want to play.
