Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops
It once again sounded like the Bulls front office was going to run this core back next season, and Vooch is all about that. Plus, DeMar wants Zach extended with the max, and Lonzo Ball just wants the knee pain to go away. Player Exit Thursday!

In his first season with the Bulls, Lonzo Ball made a significant impact at both ends.
Unfortunately, he only played in 35 games—and is set to visit a specialist for a twice-surgically repaired left knee that still pains him.
