The Chicago Bulls are in the midst of an impressive 2021-22 NBA season. While there originally was some degree of skepticism from many about their defensive capabilities, the team is sitting atop the Eastern Conference standings.
There has been a significant effort from the Bulls to add major talent around Zach LaVine since last year’s NBA trade deadline. First it was a deal for Nikola Vucevic followed by some major offseason additions in the form of DeMar DeRozan, Lonzo Ball, and Alex Caruso.
For a team very well in the mix of making a title run, the Bulls could look to make an aggressive move at the NBA trade deadline as they did last season. Chicago has a pair of young talents in Coby White and Patrick Williams who could be useful in potential deals.
There have been names like Jerami Grant and Harrison Barnes who have been floated as options for the Bulls in recent trade rumors. What if they went the route of adding a bench scorer in the sixth-man role to bring a spark to the bench and take pressure off the main scoring threats?
