David Kaplan has reported that Lauri Markkanen and two other Chicago Bulls’ players are at the Advocate Center getting ready to work out. It was announced earlier in the week that Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker would open the practice facility for socially distanced workouts.
It comes as no surprise that Lauri Markkanen is one of the first players to show up. Lauri has an amazing work ethic and recently did an interview with a Finnish podcast called Urheilucast, in which he stated that he wants to stay in Chicago long-term. He also said he is eager to see what the future brings with the new front office.
It’s a breath of fresh air to see players starting to get back to the Advocate Center and getting themselves ready for play. The NBA has kicked around the idea of playing at Disney Wolrd in Florida, and they seem to be hopeful they can make it happen.
