To be blunt, the Chicago Bulls are probably the NBA's worst team. After trading away Jimmy Butler for a bag of uncertainty, this season has become all about finding out who they have. With Denzel Valentine, Kris Dunn, and Zach LaVine (who still has yet to make his debut), they definitely have a few pieces worth keeping an eye on.
The Bulls, however, know more than anyone that even that isn't enough. That's probably the reason why the team is supposedly feeling out the trade market on several veteran players. According to the Chicago Tribune, Nikola Mirotic and Robin Lopez are some players said to be on the block:
According to one Eastern Conference executive and one Western Conference executive, the Bulls have made preliminary inquiries on Mirotic’s value, along with Robin Lopez’s. The Bulls, who are under the salary-cap floor, are seeking to add future assets in terms of draft picks without taking on long-term contracts.
No doubt that the Bulls are really embracing their current reality. Seeking draft picks and young talent is a good sign, but can they make a move to try and change that reality?
