Why The Chicago Bulls Do The Deal
Firstly, let it be said that Looney isn’t some mere throw-in here.
The Bulls should covet him. This team has struggled with a lack of interior defense over the last couple of years. Looney is a solid rim protector who can also survive in space.
With that said, of course Wiggins is the basis of this return. He’s the best player in the deal. More broadly, he’s a high-end 3-and-D wing who also provides some secondary shot creation.
Some will suggest that the Bulls ought to be sellers, not buyers this summer. Perhaps that’s true.
