Nikola Vucevic will be even more important in the Bulls offense
The Chicago Bulls are preparing for a dynamic season in the direction of a project that has been accompanied by breakup rumors for the past two years. This may be the final result if you do not follow up on the results from the beginning, within an Eastern Conference at a very high level.
That is why the Illinois management chose continuity and one of the decisions that was made was to renew Nikola Vucevic for three more seasons and a total of $60 million. Before ending his tenure with the team, Vucevic met with coach Billy Donovan and the Bulls’ board of directors to clarify his offensive role in this new season.
The center said, according to what was reported by the media: “Yes, there have been many conversations about this topic.” Chicago Sun-Times. “It was something very important to me. We talk mainly with Billy [Donovan] Because he is the coach and he is the one who makes those decisions. We talked about finding ways to use me more. “It’s not just about shooting and scoring, it’s about using my ability to create plays and help the team in different ways.”
DeMar DeRozan and Zach LaVine are expected to focus on a lot of the possessions, but Vucevic’s role on offense could be more important, especially without a healthy backup point guard on the team. The Montenegrin center has proven throughout his NBA career that he is a player more than capable of distributing the game and contributing to the team’s offensive fluidity.
