Under-the-Radar Teams to Watch this Upcoming NBA Season

5. The Chicago Bulls

The Bulls are interesting for the same reasons Sacramento is. Chicago is basically Sacramento East.

The Bulls are loaded with guys who tore it up in college: Coby White, Zack Lavine, Wendell Carter Jr, Ryan Arcidiacono, Lauri Markkanen, Denzel Valentine, Devon Dotson, and Otto Porter Jr. College basketball enthusiasts must love the Bulls and Kings. That’s besides the point though.

Similarly to Sacramento, Chicago is coming off a disappointing season. They missed the playoffs in a weak Eastern Conference. Also, the Bulls have a lot of questions surrounding their young players. For instance, can Coby White be more than just a scoring guard? Will he be able to create for his teammates like any great player does? For Zack Lavine, Can he be more than just big stats, bad team guy?

Like Sacramento, if things turn sour, which they definitely might in a more competitive eastern conference, could Lavine request a trade? The Bulls might become sellers at the trade market if the season doesn’t start they way they’d hoped. At the very least, like all the teams mentioned previously, the Bulls will be a fun league pass team.
