The Chicago Bulls currently hold the top record in the Eastern Conference just over the halfway point of the 2021-22 NBA season. With the team being in a real position to contend for a championship, could they look to make another aggressive win-now trade before the deadline?

No shortage of speculation has occurred in regards to the potential options the Bulls could have if they were to make such a move. Chicago’s top potential trade chips have been considered Patrick Williams and Coby White, but are the way willing to part with some of their top young talents?

According to Bleacher Report’s Jake Fischer, Coby White is ‘believed to be available’ in talks ahead of the NBA trade deadline. He is soon set to be eligible for a rookie extension and the Bulls recently signed two points guards in Lonzo Ball and Alex Caruso.

In Chicago, Coby White is believed to be available ahead of his impending rookie extension conversations this offseason. Drafted No. 7 in 2019, White is a holdover from the Bulls’ previous front office regime.

The time is now for the Bulls to go all-in and capitalize on the level of play they are receiving from key players like DeMar DeRozan and Zach LaVine. If Chicago has the necessary talent and stay healthy, they could have a real chance of making a special run.
