A new report about the Chicago Bulls from Shams Charania of The Athletic went viral on social media Tuesday. Charania said the Bulls are in talks to extend center Nikola Vucevic’s contract to keep him with the team long-term.

Vucevic was traded to the Bulls in March 2021. He was in the middle of a four-year $100 million contract he signed with the Orlando Magic ahead of the 2019-20 season. Vucevic is set to become a free agent this offseason.
Chicago Bulls fans react to Nikola Vucevic’s contract extension talks
Many Bulls fans have mixed thoughts on keeping Vucevic. He’s going to turn 33 years old next season. He has been a good player for Chicago but has failed to be the All-Star center they traded Wendell Carter Jr., Otto Porter, and two first-round picks for. With Lonzo Ball’s career in the NBA possibly over and the Bulls playing mediocre without him, it might be best to blow the team up and tank.
It’s hard to watch this Bulls team fail to make the playoffs and then turn on the NBA finals and watch another center with the first name Nikola lead his team to a Western Conference championship.
Here are the best takes on Bulls fans reacting to the extension talks.
