Today it was made public that Kevin Durant gave the Brooklyn Nets an ultimatum.

When it first became known that Durant wanted out, many expected the Bulls to be in the running. So much so that bookmakers gave the Bulls great odds to land him. Given the most recent odds for landing Durant, it seems as though the Bulls are out of the race.

Chicago Bulls President of Basketball Operations, Arturas Karnisovas, has made it clear that he wants to keep the team’s core together. That may have been one of many reasons for offering Zach LaVine his max contract. With LaVine’s deal taken care of and free agency seemingly finished, the Bulls’ roster for 2022-23 seems to be solidified.
Even though having the 12th best odds to land Durant is still near the top of the league, it still seems like a long shot at this point. The Boston Celtics are currently the strong favorite to land Durant, but his future is still very much up in the air.
