Chicago Bulls: An active NBA trade deadline

The Chicago Bulls have the worst record in the league, the worst point differential and fired their head coach a few weeks ago. To be honest, new head coach Jim Boylen is probably heading for a swift exit too if he keeps his military style practices and mutiny-inspiring tactics up.

It’s pretty clear this is going to be a lost season for the rebuilding Bulls, and outside of Lauri Markkanen, Wendell Carter Jr. and Zach LaVine (and mayyybe Kris Dunn), everyone is expendable. As the trade deadline approaches, Chicago should aim to turn a few expiring contracts and useful NBA players into young players or draft assets.

Robin Lopez, Justin Holiday, even Bobby Portis — all of these guys have value and could fetch some kind of asset in a trade. Moving Jabari Parker would be nice, but with that $20 million salary, it’ll be difficult. Either way, the Bulls should be big sellers given the way the season has gone thus far.
