After a brief but promising tenure with the Los Angeles Lakers, Caruso was sent to Chicago where he quickly found a legion of fans because of his powerful offensive grit and determined, strong defense.
He has suffered a few hard knocks while in Chicago but he promises to come back even stronger.

Right now, Caruso is enjoying his summer.
The young guard was spotted in Paris enjoying the sights and sounds.
This reminded some of the GOAT, Michael Jordan, who enjoyed his own trip to the city of love 25 years ago.
While Caruso hasn’t reached the heights of Jordan, he is quickly becoming something very special for this rising Bulls squad.

During his first year with the Bulls, Caruso averaged 7.4 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 4 assists.
His point output is only half the story because Caruso, despite his small size compared to other NBA stars, can create star defense.
He would have been able to accomplish even more with the Bulls last season if he wasn’t impacted by a pretty serious injury that kept him sidelined for weeks.
The Bulls are attempting to become Finals contenders and they have some very promising pieces to make that happen.
Caruso is just one of them.
When he started with the Lakers, he had to fight hard to earn his spot on the roster and eventually became a starter and a huge presence on the floor.
Now he’s continuing to prove his worth while playing in Chicago.
A healthy Caruso could end up being a huge benefit for years to come for the Bulls.
