Lauri Markkanen struggled in his third year with the Bulls, scoring only 14.7 points to go with 6.3 rebounds, 2.2 triples, 1.5 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.5 blocks on .425/.344/.824 splits, returning 100/104 value in 8/9-cat scoring formats.
Markkanen missed 15 games due to a pelvis injury but the truth of the matter is that he never seemed to be confortable in Jim Boylen’s system, becoming one of the most frustrating and inconsistent fantasy players of the year. The Finnish forward was reportedly unhappy with the Bulls management but the recent reshuffle in their front office, with Arturas Karnisovas as the new VP of Basketball Operations, is only good news for him. The Bulls have not made a decision about their head coach position yet but it’s possible that they move on from Boylen and managers in dynasty leagues should try to buy-low on Markkanen if they can.
