The Chicago Bulls are one of the worst teams right now. The franchise is not in a position to run for the title in NBA 2023-24 Season. The Bulls didn’t make a major move this offseason, which indicates they are not going to run for the title in the upcoming season.
The Bulls’ best point guard, Lonzo Ball, was injured last season and is likely to miss the upcoming season. When Ball was healthy, he got the Bulls ranked top in the Eastern Conference.

If the Bulls could acquire a similar player like Lonzo Ball, they can become the title contenders for the NBA 2023-24 Season. But who could they trade for?
An NBA Writer, Jack Simeone of the USA TODAY Sports Media Group, has featured a list of the 3 best replacements for the Bulls’ Lonzo Ball. Have a look at them!
Chicago Bulls to Land Karl-Anthony Towns
The Chicago Bulls could trade for Karl-Anthony Towns from the Minnesota Timberwolves and use him as Ball replacement. The Wolves acquire Towns to pair with Rudy Gobert and form a dynamic duo. But the duo didn’t work out well for the Wolves. As a result, they may trade Towns to the Bulls.
However, it would be interesting to see what package the Bulls will offer in exchange for Towns.
Chicago Bulls to Trade for Buddy Hield from the Indiana Pacers
Another player that the Bulls could use as Lonzo Ball’s replacement is Buddy Hield from the Indiana Pacers. Chicago could use Hield to further solidify their roster, as the veteran is an elite 3-point shooter.
Bulls to Land Kyle Kuzma from the Washington Wizards in a Trade Deal
Last but not least, Kyle Kuzma is the player that could replace Ball on the Bulls’ roster. Kuzma is eligible for a trade as the franchise extended him this offseason. Kyle has the ability to further improve the Bulls roster’ with his high-scoring skills.
