As the Chicago Bulls prepare for training camp, there are more than a few players who have garnered quite a bit of buzz.
The biggest story is Derrick Rose’s return. NBA fans last saw him in action in the 2012 playoffs, where he tore his ACL, ending the Bulls’ playoff run and forcing him to miss the entire 2012-13 season.
Jimmy Butler is right under Rose. After a breakout 2012-13 campaign, the Bulls are hoping Butler can be the 2-guard they’ve been looking for over the last four years.
Other players include Marquis Teague who is entering his sophomore season and figures to have an expanded role as Rose’s backup. Mike Dunleavy, Chicago’s big, free-agent signing, was brought in to give the Bulls some much-needed shooting depth and will look to fill a sixth-man role.
Aside from overall skill, these rankings will also take potential and expectations into consideration.
So, where does each player rank among the rest of his teammates heading into training camp?
