Report: Bulls not happy with Kris Dunn’s workout habits, could draft PG

Kris Dunn showed flashes of being the Chicago Bulls’ point guard of the future this season, but that could be changing in a hurry.

Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times reported Friday that the Bulls coaching staff and front office have been “less than impressed” with Dunn’s workout habits so far this summer as the ex-No. 5 overall pick has been “shortcutting” his way through the early months of the offseason. Cowley also adds that selecting a point guard in this month’s draft is “back in play” for Chicago.

The Bulls hold the No. 7 pick this year, which should easily put them in play for top guard prospects such as Oklahoma’s Trae Young and Alabama’s Collin Sexton. They also hold the No. 22 pick, where players like UCLA’s Aaron Holiday and Villanova’s Jalen Brunson are likely to still be on the board.

As for Dunn, who was traded to Chicago from Minnesota last summer in the Jimmy Butler deal, he averaged a strong 13.4 points and 6.0 assists a game during the season but made just 52 appearances due to injury. Incidentally, Dunn also seemed to fall out of favor with management while in Minnesota.
