Or the Bulls could seek to bring these veterans back and operate over the cap, which would limit their ability to make major signings outside of the mid-level exception (approximately $9.5 million, which they used to sign Garrett Temple last year). They would still be able to move Markkanen as part of a sign-and-trade if they found a willing team. If they don’t need to clear cap room for a major free-agent signing, this seems likely to be their best route, even if it’s underwhelming to bring back most of the same group that produced such a disappointing finish.
