Scotto: “When I look at the Bulls, Kenny Atkinson always seemed like an ideal fit there given what he did in Brooklyn building up the culture and really developing guys, which Chicago is built around. They have a ton of young guys in Wendell Carter, Lauri Markkanen, Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and Coby White. You’ve heard talk of assistants like Ime Udoka and Wes Unseld Jr., who worked with Arturas Karnisovas. I think he’s a sleeper. Somewhere in there, I can see Billy Donovan having interest as well because I think they’re on the rise.”

Teams interested in Wendell Carter

An NBA scout told the Chicago Sun-Times that there were some teams actively zeroing in on several Bulls, including Lauri Markkanen and Wendell Carter Jr. Is it your normal due diligence or a lot more smoke than usual? In this case, it’s likely both. First, sources have indicated the organization hasn’t even crossed the trade bridge. Executive vice president of basketball operations Arturas Karnisovas hasn’t even rounded up the entire roster at the Advocate Center for a full workout.

As for Carter, he basically became an afterthought in the offense. His touches seemed to disappear after being pushed into the garbage-man role, and his points had to come off offensive rebounds. That offensive philosophy already is being picked apart by the new regime, according to a source, so expect Boylen to have to teach a new look again if he is retained. But many of the defensive schemes Boylen implemented — minus the constant blitzes on pick-and-roll — have been applauded by the front office, so there’s that. So why has the Bulls’ roster drawn attention? Well, Markkanen, Carter and LaVine have had their issues with Boylen.

Here is an incomplete list of moves he would try to make: Trade Tomas Satoransky to the Nets for himself so that he could be his own starting point guard for the Bulls. Sign with Klutch Sports in an attempt to curry enough favor for Rich Paul to convince Chicago-native Anthony Davis to join the Bulls in an offseason sign-and-trade. Thaddeus Young, Cristiano Felicio, Wendell Carter Jr. and a first-round pick would go to the Lakers. Use a sweetener to dump Luke Kornet and Ryan Arcidiacano in order to create the cap space to sign Moe Harkless. Sign another 3-and-D veteran, ideally Terrence Ross or Marcus Morris. Where that cap space comes from is unclear.
