If the Bulls retain all of the players on their roster this season moving into next year, they'll have around $1.4 million to spend regarding space with the luxury tax, during free agency.
The current luxury tax cap is set at $70.307 million, and the Bulls, retaining all their talent, are locked down for $69 million heading into next year, which doesn't give them that much money to play with.
Even if the Bulls re-sign everyone, they'll still need to find a shooting guard who can add legitimate production either off the bench or in the starting lineup. If the Bulls fail to fill that need through the draft, it will be very difficult for them to do that in free agency, with the limited amount of funds they'll have.
The Bulls could entertain using the amnesty clause on a player to free up some cap space, but there hasn't been much chatter about their intentions of doing that.
If the Bulls don't amnesty anyone this offseason, and they bring back the talent they currently have, they'll be strapped for cash heading into free agency, and that's a reason to be concerned.
