Black Friday 2021 is a busy day for the Chicago Bulls. Sophomore head coach Billy Donovan and the Bulls are preparing to participate at the start of back-to-back games, starting on Black Friday night (Nov. 26). And the Bulls are looking to snap a two-game losing streak if they can beat the Orlando Magic on the road at the start of back-to-back games Nov. 26.

It’s important that the Bulls get a win over the Magic at the Amway Center before the weekend because ending those back-to-back games won’t be easy. The Bulls return home to the friendly confines of the United Center on Nov. 27 to take on star goalie/small forward Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat.

During this two-game losing streak, potential issues were uncovered for this Bulls rotation. First and foremost is the fact that there is an overall lack of depth among the more traditional big men in the rotation. When the Bulls were missing star center Nikola Vucevic for the past two weeks, some teams with talented big men exposed the frontcourt (i.e. Portland Trail Blazers and Indiana Pacers).

Where does the Black Friday free agent shopping list for the Chicago Bulls begin?

There is also an apparent lack of bench production at times. With the Bulls still waiting for third-year point guard Coby White to return to full strength, and for them to have a forward/forward unit that’s just thin on scorers in general, there could be an imminent need to add some more. help among the reserves.

As it’s Black Friday, here’s a look at four free agents who could be on the Bulls’ shopping list at this point in the season.
