Zach LaVine and Nikola Vucevic make up a strong Eastern Conference duo for the Chicago Bulls, but this team still seems to be missing some pieces to be a true playoff threat. Making the move to bring in Vucevic at the NBA trade deadline last season was surely a statement move by Chicago, but could also mean the end of Lauri Markkanen’s time with the team.
The Miami Heat have a lot of crucial decisions to make over the next week, one of them deciding whether to re-sign guard Kendrick Nunn. With Nunn and Duncan Robinson being restricted free agents and the team being on the hunt for a permanent point guard solution, it’s reasonable to think a core piece of the last two years will depart Miami this offseason.
Complete the 2020-21 NBA season? Check. Complete the 2021 NBA Draft? Check. Free agency, you're up next. The league's annual spending spree is set to kick off Monday night with teams and players officially permitted to begin negotiations at 6 p.m. ET.

The Cavs have been linked to several soon-to-be NBA free agents. The Cavs are hoping for a big year in 2021. The team drafted Evan Mobley, a self-described generational player, and has made a move for Ricky Rubio, with the hope that those two, plus Jarrett Allen, Larry Nance Jr., and Issac Okoro can help remake the team defensively. The team is far from where J.B. Bickerstaff wants it but they’re on the right path if their goal is to be the Eastern Conference version of the Grit and Grind Grizzlies. They’re rumored to be interested in a few NBA free agents, but how do those guys fit in this team?
