Arturas Karnisovas and the Chicago Bulls made a number of moves during the off-season, including signing former Los Angeles Lakers security guard Alex Caruso.

As a member of the 2020 title team, he brings defensive skills and championship experience to the Windy City.

Caruso signed a four-year $ 37 million deal with the Bulls in July after four seasons in Los Angeles.

And already now shows his experience as a member of a title run, both in the game and in practice.

A video from the Bulls training (via @StephNoh on Twitter) shows how Caruso helps to adapt the team’s communication on the pitch:

The former Lakers security guard is one of the numerous talents the Front Office has brought with them to help step up their defenses.

But without the newly acquired Alex Caruso, the Chicago Bulls’ defense would certainly look different next season.

And if it wasn’t for one of his former teammates from the Los Angeles Lakers, he might never have made the team.

Alex Caruso moved from undrafted to the G-League, to a squad place and finally to a title with the Los Angeles Lakers.

His entire career has had one constant, LeBron James, who has always been in the corner of the guard and is rooted in his success.

Caruso told the media (via NBC Sports) that his contract is a by-product of the game with the four-time champion:

In four seasons and 184 appearances with the “LakeShow”, the 27-year-old scored an average of 5.9 points, 2.4 assists, 2.3 rebounds and 1.0 steals per game.

Now at the Chicago Bulls, Alex Caruso will try to justify LeBron James’ final assist and keep improving.

But his greatest chance at that may only come when they reach the playoffs they aim to reach for the first time since 2016.

In a September 26 article for Pippen Ain’t Easy, Andrew Miller examined Alex Caruso’s star-stop defense.

The former Los Angeles Lakers Guardian had particular success guarding the Guardian of the Brooklyn Nets, James Harden.

From Miller’s latest:

Getting assists isn’t hard for Harden, a member of the borough’s Big Three with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.

But, as Miller details, trips to the free throw line were hard to come by, at least when guarded by Caruso:

Trust that if the Chicago Bulls are set to make a deep playoff run in the Eastern Conference next season, they will inevitably catch up with James Harden and 2022 title favorites Brooklyn Nets.

Alex Caruso could become the ultimate X-factor in this series based on his previous experience with the MVP 2018.
