The plan was a sound one.
Bulls executive vice president of basketball operations Arturas Karnisovas came on the scene back in 2020 with the idea of adding All-Star-caliber players, which then would make Chicago more of a preferred destination in the NBA free-agent market. If that meant splashing the pot with draft assets like they were $10 poker chips? Well, so be it.
A sound plan, but one that has failed.
