Who would that be? Fultz? No thanks.

Better defender than anyone on the Bulls? That's just hilariously wrong. He's a very bad defender, the Magic hide him by playing as slow as possible. Yeah, he puts up stats, but Vuc is also an extremely overrated offensive player. Watch him disappear completely when it matters most (see: last years' playoffs).
I’ll split the agreements. I’m not saying Vuc is Jokic, but it’s a little unfair to say he’s a playoff bust when his first and only NBA post-season was 5 games against the eventual champion Raptors, facing HOF Marc Gasol and Ibaka (who also took Embiid out of his A-game)... as a no. 1 (and basically only) option.
I guess the other point is we’re talking about Zach and Coby’s potential as a pair, and you guys seem to be convinced that Fultz and Fournier are as good or better. I would argue that every basketball mind in the world would take Coby/Zach over the Magic backcourt.
But you guys don’t think this would be a ‘plus’ Offensive team? Imagine you trade Sato, Felicio and Wendell for Vuc, possibly FRP swap depending on our lottery.
I do. It’d be a 5-man scoring threat. The way the FO would have to operate though, they resign Otto or work a S&T around him since the cap would be shot. Consider Zach’s extension or a trade.
Zach at $20m, Vuc at $24m. Lauri maybe extends depending on his season.
