Feb. 8 marks the trade deadline for the NBA 2023-24 season, and the Chicago Bulls have yet to make their move. With talks floating around of trading Zach Lavine recently, the whole city of chicago has been eargly waiting to see what will be done. If nothing is done, this will be third consecutive year that the Bulls have not done any in season trades before the deadline. In an article written by Darnell Mayberry, he breaks down the reasoning behind why Chicago’s front office still has yet to make any moves.
With confernce rivals Indianapoils Pacers trading for Pascal Siakam and New York Knicks trading for OG Anyanoby, Bulls fans are eager to see if the front office will do anything to match theor eastern confernce foes.
Alex Caruso seems to draw the most attention from teams, but Chicago has a high price tag for his trade value. However, the Bulls main focus is to shop around LaVine. Although he has been injured for for the past three games due to an ankle injury, there is hope for him to return before the trade deadline next week.
Two teams that showed intrest for trading for LaVine are the Las Angles Lakers and the Detroit Pistons. Detroit is filled with young guards and could use a vet scorer to help mold their young core. The Lakers are in the search for their third peice to compliment Lebron James and Anthiny Davis.
