The Utah Jazz and Chicago Bulls both were teams that entered the 2021-22 NBA season with high expectations, but failed to make it out of the first-round of the playoffs.

With both teams being in win-now mode, everything will need to be on the table when it comes to considering potential roster changes after underachieving. There are clear flaws with their respective rosters that could be addressed.

Before getting too into potential changes, the Bulls’ top priority will be to determine the future of Zach LaVine in Chicago. He is set to reach free agency and it remains to be seen if he will re-sign with the team. If he departs, they will need to act fast.

If LaVine sticks around, the Bulls still need to find a way to get better. Rudy Gobert could be an intriguing trade target to achieve that. Chicago lacked rim protection last season and there isn’t a better player in the NBA in that department than Gobert.
