That's great for the Bulls, maybe not the windfall PHO expects. I'm of the opinion that too many people overthink a trade trying to balance out the stats and value and don't just look at what teams end up with.
Satoransky isn't the sexy add that fans want to brag about but he plays his role and did it in more minutes than he ever had in the past with the Bulls this year. Looking at the PHO roster Markkanen would step right in and start, he's a floor spacer waiting to get the ball from Rubio. The strong point for both is they don't have long term deals so if they don't work out they don't have to stay. if they do only Markkanen is going to rate a major contract. If PHO keeps Oubre they're going to have to sign him to a big contract.
The Bulls can't go wrong getting #10. But Oubre in exchange for Lavine doesn't help their roster or rotation, just clogs up the SF position with Porter and Hutchison and leaves a big hole at either guard spot. Trading Markkanen shifts Porter to the PF, whether they trade Young or not, leaves White at PG but now with Lavine and Oubre at the 2 and 3 who like White can both shoot or get their own shot so less reliance on having that pure passing PG.
I don't know a S&T or his qualifying offer would fit in a trade but if the Suns wanted Kris Dunn as a backup PG instead of Satoransky there would be no problem making that substitution.
