It’s not entirely clear what’s next for the struggling Chicago Bulls.
The team is the 11th squad in the East and their 26-33 record is only getting worse after multiple bad losses.
The team has now lost six games in a row, including a horrible 25-point blowup the other night.
Right now, the Bulls are enjoying some much-needed time off for the All-Star break.
But what’s going to come after that?

Head coach Billy Donovan spoke to the press the other day, touching upon a number of issues related to his team.
He was asked about the second half of the season and if making the playoffs was still the goal.
Donovan said that appearing in the postseason was certainly what the Bulls were aiming for.
However, he didn’t sound too enthusiastic or confident in his team’s ability to do that.
Donovan said that the team needed to “get away” and “mentally recharge” before taking on the second half of the season.
While it is true that can only help the Bulls, is it all they need?
The problems bothering this team go beyond mental exhaustion.
They certainly do need to let their bodies and minds rest but the roster as it is clearly isn’t working to the best of its ability.
And the fact that the team made no real changes before the trade deadline means this is the Bulls we will see all the way to the postseason.
If they make it that far.
If 2023 continues as it has been, you can bet Chicago’s front office is going to do something drastic.
Just last year, the Bulls were one of the most exciting teams in the East.
Now they are a far cry from that.
If Donovan isn’t able to get his Bulls to the playoffs, he might be looking for a new job.NEXT: The Bulls Can't Stop Blowing Leads This Season
