NBA Trades: Chicago Bulls
The Bulls have been rumored to be considering trading star Zach LaVine this summer, but they would actually do so in this proposal for Herro, Marcus Morris, and picks. Herro’s name has come up a lot in trade talks of late, with only a few teams seemingly wanting him, but he is still only 23 years old and one of the better shooters in the NBA.
With the Bulls stuck in a weird spot where they have three stars but may not be a playoff team, moving one for a younger player with a lot of upside makes sense. It would also free them up to eventually move on from DeMar DeRozan and Nikola Vucevic.
In addition to Herro, the Sixers would add Morris, who is on a big expiring contract. Better yet, the Bulls would receive both a 2027 pick swap from Philadelphia as well as a 2030 first-rounder, top-5 protected.
Embiid would be in his mid-30s by then, and the Sixers probably won’t be any good, so those picks would be valuable assets for the Bulls. Ultimately, if Herro were routed to the Bulls, he is still young enough to be a part of a rebuild. Thus, as constructed, I think Chicago says yes to the deal.
