Now, depending on whether the Bulls return to close out the regular season, Valentine is on the verge of becoming a restricted free agent with 36 choppy games to show for the past two seasons. Whether his future is in Chicago or elsewhere, the end of the season should have been a proving ground for Valentine to demonstrate he’s still got it — and he’s deserving of the financial security afforded to those who do. “It’s pretty rough right now because it’s a lot of uncertainty that’s going on,” Valentine said. “And it’s my contract year. It’s a lot on my plate right now that I think about. Everybody’s going through it right now. It’s a lot of people out there that lost their jobs and have bigger problems than I have. I’m just very blessed and grateful to be where I’m at right now. But there are still some things to worry about.”
Storyline: Denzel Valentine Free Agency
Valentine released his first song, “Introduction,” in January, complete with a video. He discussed his musical aspirations in an episode of “Run With Us,” the team-produced miniseries that gives behind-the-scenes access to the Bulls. He recently filmed a second video, which should be out soon. In the meantime, he’s shared his music on Instagram Live, inviting fans to listen to his creations and vibe with him in real time. “Just kind of have fun with it,” he said.
Denzel Valentine: I’m excited to be partnering with @nandosusa to provide meals for the families and staff at @rmhccni near Lurie Children’s Hospital this week. So blessed to be able to support others during this unprecedented time. Please everyone continue to be safe! #NBATogether

Shortly after being drafted by the Chicago Bulls with the No. 14 overall pick in 2016, Denzel Valentine’s father thought he was delivering a dose of reality to his son. “I’m like, ‘S—, they ain’t gone let you wear 45, bro,'” Carlton Valentine said, referring to his son’s jersey number at Michigan State. “So, he got drafted on a Thursday, that Monday was his press conference. They had a No. 45 waiting for him, and I’m like, ‘Aw s—, OK. This is serious.’ There was no way I thought he was getting 45 because of Jordan.”
