Despite the mutual interest that both parties have shared, DeMar DeRozan’s future with the Chicago Bulls remains blurry. The 34-year-old Deebo has an expiring $26.8MM contract, and he might become a free agent at the end of the season.

However, amid the existing uncertainty, there is a significant notion around the league that both sides will eventually reach an agreement.

Deebo expected to re-sign with the Bulls

In a recent piece published for Bleacher Report, Eric Pincus provided a list of several league stars who are expected to re-sign with their respective ball clubs in the upcoming offseason. DeRozan’s was included on that list. 

“The expected theme across the league is players re-signing, including Pascal Siakam (No. 4 on our free-agent big board) and the Indiana Pacers, Jrue Holiday (No. 5) and the Boston Celtics, OG Anunoby (No. 7) and the New York Knicks and DeMar DeRozan (No. 15) and the Chicago Bulls.”

Is a new contract on the horizon?

Deebo can sign an extension with the Bulls for $179.4 million over four years throughout this season. But as it is, it remains to be seen if Chicago will move the needle to secure the long-term deal for the All-Star or if they'll ultimately wait until summer to discuss a deal.

DeMar has consistently shown that he deserves to earn a new contract with the Bulls. He currently serves as the driving force of Chicago's campaign by averaging 23.2 points, 5.4 assists, and 4.3 boards while playing 37.9 minutes per contest.
