Lauri Markkanen has indicated his plan is to remain in Chicago long term, although hasn't hinted on whether he would like an extension at this point, per Cody Westerlund.
Markkanen is coming off what was a disappointing season for the Bulls but has affirmed his wishes to remain in the Windy City. He struggled to find his rhythm under former head coach Jim Boylen and along with injury, he presented as one of the more frustrating fantasy players last season. Markkanen has made it clear he is out to prove people wrong and that his personal expectations are at an all-time high. He appears happy with the decision to hire Billy Donovan and should he be overlooked in drafts, Markkanen could be a solid value-play across many formats.
