One of the most attractive free agents on the market this summer is Lonzo Ball. While he’s restricted, he will still receive interest from many teams around the league.
With that in mind, there’s one team in particular that is a front-runner for landing the young, talented guard.
Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports recently reported that unless there’s a major hiccup, Ball intends to work out a contract with the Bulls. Additionally, Bleacher Report’s Jake Fischer reported that there’s mutual interest between Ball and the Bulls on a four-year deal worth north of $80 million.
In terms of fit, Ball could be the missing piece to help bring Chicago back to the playoffs next season.
Last year with the Pelicans, he averaged 14.6 points 5.7 assists and 4.8 rebounds per game while shooting 37.8 percent from deep.
