The 2023–24 NBA season is now underway but it is still too early to tell how good or bad several teams will be. Last season, the San Antonio Spurs tied for the second-worst record in the league but are expected to be much better after landing the number one overall pick and selecting top prospect Victor Wembanyama.
Meanwhile, the Chicago Bulls were among the most disappointing teams last season after missing the playoffs. Following a relatively quiet offseason, they are running it back and hoping for better results.
How well the Bulls start the season will probably dictate their path forward. If they again underperform, they could look to move their best players, including All-Star Zach LaVine, Nikola Vucevic, and DeMar DeRozan.
However, the Bulls could ask for a haul in return for their best player and few teams may be able to meet their asking price. One of the teams that can is the Spurs, who not only have enough expiring contracts but also have plenty of assets that may be used in a trade with the Bulls. But would they? Next, we’ll take a look at the trade.
