Wonder if a Felicio buyout is still looming. Vonleh would be one final upgrade.

Would love Vonleh, but we are overloaded at PF/C. Need a PG.

If anything, they would have to waive him. Buyout would only make sense for him if he could actually find a spot on another team, which he obviously won’t.

Based on all the rumors we’ve seen at the deadline, I think the most likely trade that is made in the offseason is a S&T Markkanen deal where Lonzo Ball or DeMar DeRozan ends up in Chicago. I’d be happy with both options.

Tomas Satoransky / Coby White
Zach LaVine / Troy Brown Jr.
DeMar DeRozan / Al-Farouq Aminu
Patrick Williams / Thaddeus Young
Nikola Vucevic / Marco Simonovic

Lonzo Ball / Tomas Satoransky
Zach LaVine / Coby White
Patrick Williams / Troy Brown Jr.
Thaddeus Young / Al-Farouq Aminu
Nikola Vucevic / Marco Simonovic

Side Note: DeMar DeRozan and Nikola Vucevic were teammates at USC

After the season is over their may be more players who will be on the move. Say the Clippers fall apart, both Leonard and PG might be available as an example. Who knows, but rosters turn over way more than they used to.

If the Bulls can't get Lonzo, which should be the first option, another name to watch for will be Devonte Graham. I know he doesn't provide the size that Lonzo does, but he checks a lot of boxes. His future in Charlotte is uncertain after this season.

Completely agree, I was coming here to post about this. I like Lonzo, but I think Graham would be more cost effective, and Charlotte might be a better fit for Markannen.
Ok, Zach is pretty awesome, we should use capspace to give him a full max next off-season.
We should still trade Lauri, Otto, Young and Sato for the best we can get.

36%FG% DeVonte Graham? Wjat boxes does he really check? That's quite far down the list of guys I think the Bulls should target.

Looks like Schroder may be available if he can't reconnect with the Lakers. Another Euro may be just what we need.

Today Ball and DeRozan would be good bets, any team that makes a trade could end up cutting loose somebody else that would fit it as well or better. I think those two get very different contracts, Ball you want to have around for 5 years, but you wouldn't want to have to bid up the price because another team is in competition. DeRozan is 36? he fits well for a team that doesn't have a FRP next year but could draft his replacement in 2022.


To me the direction they go next year depends much on how this rotation looks getting into the playoffs. If Young and Satoransky mesh with Lavine, Vucevic and Williams who are staying, likely Coby White too, do you hang onto them rather than go FA shopping after trading or buying them out. How Markkanen looks as a piece determines if he stays, because he's not the #2 option now and if Williams works during the summer he might be #3.

You bring up Simonovic and if he was the third center option behind Theis now might be the time to get him over here to learn the NBA game. From what I read he's 22 and has played 5 21 game seasons so let's not make him out to be more than he is. He could probably improve in two ways, getting better as a three point shooter to look like a stretch 4 or adding some muscle to be more of a center. And at 22 he could do either or both. Watching Vucevic would teach him a lot.

If I'm Karnisovas this summer, I'm going to try and acquire the rights to the best point guard in the Euroleague - Vasilije Micic, who's currenty 27 yo and in his prime. His rights currently belong to OKC, but given that Micic's age doesn't really fit their timeline and because they have a million of picks and only so many available roster spots, this shouldn't be too difficult.

Big body for a point-guard (6'6), strong, pretty athletic, above average defender, great court vision and playmaking. He stated he doesn't want to come to the NBA just to be a part of the roster, but wants to go to a winning team and have a role in it. He wants to win.

DeRozan probably gets a 3 or 4 year deal. He’s 31 years old, but he doesn’t look like he’s slowing down. His evolution as a passer also fits AKs archetype. He would be an ideal veteran to mentor Troy Brown Jr. & Patrick Williams too. The combination of DeRozan, LaVine, & Voochs passing ability might allow Coby to handle point guard (assuming he develops some after another offseason).

And just last season the board was debating if Lavine for Graham would be a good trade for us. Time moves quickly in the league.

As much as I like DeRozan's fit offensively, it would be a major problem on defense. I do think it's an intriguing possibility, and I agree the Spurs are a good S&T partner for a Lauri trade, but both of their prime candidates (Mills and DeRozan) would be problematic defensively.

i think he's getting serviceable players man its good. they're all relatively athletic and can play a little on both ends. should make a good practice squad. im high on theis and vooch is obviously a great pairing with lavine. i think top 4 protected for this yrs pick wasn't enough but hoping for the best

Never heard of him, but he surely is intriguing judging from this clip. Loved the outside the box thinking!!!

I'll send my Brother to pick him up at O'Hare....If OKC is reasonable for his rights he'd be worth a contract. Especially since we have no FRP this year. His age fits with Zach's prime. I like his size and shooting ability. Kudos. Best idea I've seen on this forum in a while. Maybe Vooch can help lure him over. Mici is Serbian, Vooch is a Montenegrin. They're "neighbors".

Austin Rivers was released by Thunder,the Bulls could go after him,he'd be certainly better than Coby and Sato.
