The Chicago Bulls’ POV on this deal with the Milwaukee Bucks

Many have speculated whether or not the Chicago Bulls will blow up their roster at any point this coming season and aim to get assets in exchange for their major pieces. Caruso would undeniably fetch them a nice return. With Jevon Carter, Coby White, and Ayo Dosunmu all in town, it would be feasible for the Bulls to move off of Caruso if they get a decent enough offer as well.

It would be tough for Bulls fans to accept Grayson Allen joining their team due to what took place between him and Caruso several years back. Yet, at the end of the day, Allen is a capable starting shooting guard in this league who provides excellent outside shooting. If they don’t want him, the front office could look to flip him for more assets.

Beauchamp, a first round selection in 2022, would be an intriguing addition, especially if the Bulls do enter a rebuild anytime soon. At 22 years old, the 6-foot-6 wing has plenty of room to grow and could end up being a very nice player. That first round pick in 2029 could also be quite valuable six years down the line, as there’s no telling what the Milwaukee Bucks will look like at that time.

Ultimately, this deal would be about getting a collection of nice assets, including a starter, a young wing with potential, and a very compelling draft asset from a prominent divisional rival.
