Nikola Vucevic News
Chicago Bulls center Nikola Vucevic could be on the move this offseason. The stud big man heavily struggled during his first season in Chicago. That being said, the Bulls are trying to find a better fit to place alongside DeMar DeRozan and Zach LaVine. There have been rumors that the Bulls are interested in Rudy Gobert. It sounds like the Bulls are hesitant to move young talent such as Coby White or Patrick Williams. Although, that could change, assuming Gobert is available this offseason. A move to Utah could increase Vucevic's long term fantasy value.
Chicago Bulls center Nikola Vucevic has been rumored to be on the move, especially if a deal would include Rudy Gobert or Deandre Ayton. Yet, with the veteran widely respected by many throughout the organization, there's a strong chance he could remain in the Windy City. The 31-year-old averaged 17.6 points, 11.0 rebounds, 1.0 blocks, and 1.0 steals last season. However, while Vucevic has historically been proficient on the offensive end and the glass over the years, he has yet to play an entire year since entering the league in 2011.
Chicago Bulls center Nikola Vucevic put forth an impressive final stat line during Sunday's loss to the Bucks, logging 24 points and 17 rebounds in his first playoff game with his new franchise. But it's hard to not think of what could have been, considering Vucevic shot 9-for-27 overall, including 2-for-10 from behind the arc. The 31-year-old has compiled a double-double in five of his last six playoff appearances, and after leading the team in shot attempts, he will remain an integral part of their offensive attack over the games to come. But after being held to 3-for-19 from the field by Milwaukee on April 5, a troubling trend could be emerging for the two-time All-Star who next takes the floor Wednesday for Game 2.
Chicago Bulls center Nikola Vucevic (rest) and point/shooting guard Alex Caruso (back) have been ruled out for Sunday's game against Minnesota. Vucevic and Caruso join leading scorers DeMar DeRozan (rest) and Zach LaVine (rest) on the sidelines, paving the way for Chicago's second unit to take on significantly increased offensive roles against the league's top team in terms of pace. Vucevic's scoring average dipped to just 17.6 PPG this year, but he averaged a double-double for the fourth consecutive campaign. Caruso was limited to just 41 games (18 starts) due to myriad injuries, and his status for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference playoffs remains unclear. Coby White and Ayo Dosunmu would see elevated roles if Caruso is sidelined beyond Sunday.
