Lauri Markkanen Expected To Change His Game

Chicago Bulls forward Lauri Markkanen is not just going to be a catch and shoot player this season, according to head coach Billy Donovan. "What I do not want him to be from watching film is what I would say would be one-dimensional, just a catch-and-shoot forward," Donovan said. Markkanen experienced the worst season of his career last year under then-coach Jim Boylen. The organization has now shifted their focus to Markkanen's development. He'll hopefully have a bounce back season and should be worth drafting in the middle rounds.

Lauri Markkanen Hopeful For Bounce-Back Season

Chicago Bulls forward Lauri Markkanen is hopeful that he can prove the doubters wrong next season. "My expectations are even higher than ever now, just going back to my fourth year and performing at a high level," said Markkanen. Former head coach Jim Boylen failed to get much out of his young core during his time in Chicago. It sounds like Markkanen is already hitting it off with new head coach Billy Donovan. Markkanen has plenty of talent and should have a significant role on the team going forward. Fantasy owners could look at Markkanen as a sleeper player for next season.

Lauri Markkanen Unhappy With Direction Of The Franchise

Chicago Bulls power forward Lauri Markkanen is unhappy with the current direction of the organization, according to Joe Cowley. Markkanen was not pleased with the organization before the NBA went on hiatus. His stats have taken a dip this season and he mentioned that he'd like to play elsewhere if the direction of the team didn't change. The Bulls have hired a new executive of basketball operations in Arturas Karnisovas. He helped turn the Denver Nuggets into a playoff threat. Hopefully things start to change in Chicago and Markkanen decides to stay with the organization.
