Bulls should trade for free agent ‘power forward’ to help energize the ‘ frontcourt

The Bulls are in dire need of an energy boost this season.

The Chicago Bulls, who are 5-11, are in desperate need of a spark. With a losing season on the horizon, something must be done. Here comes Wenyen Gabriel. The Kentucky power forward might help mix things up in the frontcourt and inject some much-needed enthusiasm into the team.

Frontcourt boost

The Bulls’ frontcourt is currently comprised of lumbering big guys, one-dimensional power forwards, and inexperienced youngsters. While the 26-year-old will not solve all of the Bulls’ problems, his athleticism and high energy will undoubtedly energise the team.

“The Chicago Bulls are struggling for wins, and while Gabriel may not solve all of their problems, he could bring some front-court connective energy the team may have lost with Derrick Jones Jr. leaving in free agency,” Bleacher Report’s Eric Pincus wrote.

“Gabriel has length and always brings tremendous energy to the court. He’s not as physically imposing as some of the league’s powerful true centers, but he’s more mobile. The Bulls have the roster space and should be able to stay under the luxury-tax threshold while adding a bit of a pick-me-up to their squad.”
