It sure looks like the Chicago Bulls are looking to build in the fly.
Following yet another disappointing season in the Windy City, Chicago’s already highly flawed front office has decided that pretty much everyone on the roster can be had in a trade.
“There’s a growing belief around the league that the Bulls are open to trading anyone and anything not named Lauri Markkanen or Wendell Carter Jr.,” Darnell Mayberry of The Athletic reported.
This also seems to be an indication that the No. 7 overall pick in next week’s NBA Draft could potentially be had. In terms of player assets, the likes of Zach LaVine, Otto Porter Jr. and Kris Dunn could potentially be had.
In particular, LaVine seems to be a rather intriguing trade possibility. The 24-year-old guard averaged a career-high 23.7 points to go with 4.7 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game last season.
Chicago is seemingly in the restricted free agent market for a point guard. That list includes D’Angelo Russell and Malcolm Brogdon.
Meanwhile, Chicago native Patrick Beverley has stated he’s interested in returning to his native city.
If any of these options were to come to fruition, Dunn would be the odd-man out. Both LaVine and Dunn were acquired in the now infamous Jimmy Butler trade years back.
