Bulls emerging as ‘potential home’ for two-time NBA champion wing

The Chicago Bulls are interested in adding a two-time NBA champion to their rotation.

Denver Nuggets wing Kentavious Caldwell-Pope has become a target for Chicago, according to a report from Yahoo Sports’ Jake Fischer.

While the Bulls understand that Caldwell-Pope has other suitors, Chicago is monitoring his free agency in the event that they fail to retain Patrick Williams, who is a restricted free agent.

“Kentavious Caldwell-Pope would seem, at present, to be the veteran in line to benefit from the Magic’s cap space,” Fischer said. “Caldwell-Pope is also believed to have a potential home in Chicago, should the Bulls ultimately lose out on Williams, in addition to Philadelphia viewing the veteran wing as a backup option.”

Chicago executive Artūras Karnišovas has expressed a strong desire to bring back Williams. Williams will attract his fair share of suitors, however. Fischer said that “Oklahoma City Thunder, Toronto (Raptors), and Charlotte Hornets are) already being mentioned by league personnel as possible landing spots for Williams outside of Chicago.”

Between ongoing trade negotiations for Zach LaVine, as well as a looming decision on Williams, Chicago’s wing depth is more than likely about to experience a shake-up with free agency officially commencing on June 30.
