Lol Lauri…a 7 foot spot up shooter who sucks ass on defense and can’t create his own offense. Who the fuck is his agent?

Sucks bulls will prob be stuck with him on the QO next season unless they’re somehow able to reach a S+T deal somehow. Doesn’t seem like Lauri wants to budge on his asking price despite the market shrinking and the fact he’ll have a lesser role next season, which could lower is value even more

I'm hoping we can get someone else at PF and just not give him any minutes

That’s unlikely. I would imagine they would at the very least like to trade him in that scenario and not giving him minutes wouldn’t help their cause

He isn’t shit. Highlight of his career is getting a compliment from lebron. With that said 10-20 mil in the nba isn’t shit anymore either. This isn’t 20 years ago.

If they can’t move him, having play on the 1 yr QO at 9 mil isn’t bad. Front court would look like : Vuc, Williams, Bradley, Lauri, Marko. That’s not bad.

its pretty “meh” actually in reality.

Best case scenario if we do keep him on his QO, Lauri plays out of his mind and ups his trade value and we get some good assets at trade deadline.

Let the kid realize his situation by these rejections and have a contract year.

I haven't given up on him, but moreso, we need help at the position.

His best years are ahead, if we get him on QO it's a steal.

Certainly far from a Felicio situation where we pay 10+ and get less than nothing, have to feed him and shit.

An all star center, a promising 4 with superstar potential, a quality backup C who does great in limited minutes, a stretch 4/5 in Lauri and an unknown but promising Marko is meh? Maybe not the best front court rotation in the NBA but certainly better than meh.

only two of the guys you listed play any defense. Im referencing what we have THIS year, and pWill I love be he ain’t ready to be anywhere near that potential you mention. Lauri is trash(you’ve said so yourself Im pretty sure before). And Marko will be the 5th guy in that rotation, so don’t expect much there.

bottom line, good teams in the nba have more in their front court than the bulls do IMO. I’d be curious to hear a playoff roster that doesn’t have more firepower in their front court. I haven’t looked, and there probably is one or two…but point remains the bulls are “meh” in the front court. The bulls will be winning games with their backcourt

I think your red colored glasses are showing

Calling that depth not bad is too rosy for Knox lol

I said it was “meh”

you now call it ”not bad”

not sure what the difference is between “meh” and “not bad”

you seem to be agreeing with this assessment now
