Seems like they’ll classic Reinsdorf & co. Bulls, and bring him back only to lower our odds for a playin chance we can’t reach anyway.
In classic Reinsdorf & Co. fasion, they will keep him out as long as they can so they can use the same line they use every offseason. "Our guys didn't get a chance to play together much, we will be much better next year once we are healthy" and they will use that line to justify not making anymore big moves this offseason.
Yep. The whole lottery thing is pipe dream fantasy anyway. The Bulls are highly unlikely to get a first round pick. That's the reality.
They need Zach on the court to get familiar with playing alongside Vuc, and see who of the other players can be beneficial pieces on the court with those 2.

The Bulls are currently tied with 2 other teams for 7,8,9. In the 2 years since the lottery odds have changed, the 7 spot has moved up to the top 4 in both years and the 8 and 9 spot once in each year. That is 4 out of 6 spots in that range that have moved up in that range. 2 out of 3 teams moving up on that range is not highly unlikely. People don’t realize that when every team has relatively equally bad odds it makes everything wide open.
Pelicans move up from 7 to 1 and take Zion
Grizzlies move up from 9 to 2 and take Ja Morant
Hornets move up from 8 to 3 and take LaMelo Ball
Bulls move up from 7 to 4 and take Patrick Williams
The irony is that the Bulls ended up moving up in the wrong draft. Patrick Williams while still a potentially good pick is not in the same category as the other 3 guys. This year would be different though. The Bulls need this pick!
Also rushing Zach back does nothing. There are going to be moves made to this roster over the summer and when the team gets a training camp together next year that will provide enough opportunity to build chemistry and get the team on the same page.
