If the second half of the NBA season plays out like the first, the Chicago Bulls may make some major changes.
The team didn’t expect to be in 11th place in the East at this point and they are floundering worse than ever before.
That means that some alterations to the roster – and the coaching staff – may be on the horizon.

But will the Bulls part with someone who has become a pivotal part of the team and its culture?
That’s possible, as it’s been reported that Chicago may seek two first-round draft picks in a trade for Alex Caruso.
Since joining the Bulls, Caruso has transformed into a fan-favorite player who performs with enthusiasm, determination, and a desire to fight hard during every game.
However, Caruso has unfortunately also encountered a few big injuries and has missed out on many games, especially last season when he was sidelined for months.
This year, he is averaging 5.5 points, 3 rebounds, and 3.3 assists during his 24.6 minutes a game.
This is Caruso’s second team during his time in the NBA.
He got started with the Los Angeles Lakers during the 2017-18 season.
When playing for that team, he proved himself and became a beloved star who was celebrated by the often-fickle Lakers fanbase.
Caruso is a 6-foot-4 guard who plays like someone much bigger and much stronger.
He is the definition of someone with a lot of fight inside him.
His time with the Bulls has been decidedly mixed due to his injuries but there is no doubt that if he is traded to another team, he will play for them with the same sort of fiery drive that has made him a hit for both the Lakers and Bulls.NEXT: DeMar DeRozan Reached A Legendary Mark Monday
