Will the decision to re-sign DeMar DeRozan be a tough one for the Chicago Bulls?

It is our opinion that talent under contract to play or trade for a player you will play is a far better thing to have than not. But not everyone believes it makes sense to sign certain players to the Chicago Bulls‘ roster for the looming 2024-25 season.

Such is the case with DeMar DeRozan and the Bulls, with one example being the folks behind the “Bulls Central” podcast. To them, the decision to re-sign DeRozan to the Bulls’ roster is less clear-cut, and actually presents a tough choice to Chicago’s front office. Now, if the veteran Bulls wing had played poorly for his team this season, we might get the trepidation. But even if the Bulls don’t plan on sticking with DeRozan long-term, having his contract to trade is better than having nothing at all.

Of course, if he is looking for max money and years and won’t budge, it’s possible he leaves for the best offer on the table.

Check out the clip embedded above to hear their argument for why this could be a tougher decision than many seem to think.
