Podcast: Cause for concern about Markkanen, Carter? originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

The Bulls have shown progress after every preseason game so far. Coby White is adjusting to his new role, the rookie Patrick Williams looks like he belongs in the NBA and Zach LaVine is doing Zach LaVine things. But Lauri Markkanen and Wendell Carter Jr. aren't progressing like the rest. It's early, of course, but is there cause for concern? And with the rookie extension deadline coming up on Monday, should the Bulls negotiate a long-term deal with Markkanen? Host Jason Goff, K.C. Johnson, and Rob Schaefer discuss Markkanen and Carter’s adjustment to the new system and why it may be taking them a bit longer to get comfortable.

(4:56) - What needs to be done to help get Markkanen going?

(14:06) - Will Lauri Markkanen start the entire season?

(17:15) - Coby White is getting better

(21:49) - Patrick Williams is... Baby Kawhi?

(30:42) - When is Wendell Carter Jr. going to start playing instead of thinking?
