With just four days to go before the NBA 2022 trading deadline, the rumors are already starting to heat up. The Chicago Bulls truly a team worth keeping an eye on, as their depth has been tested in so many ways this season.
This season, the Bulls have played many games without Zach LaVine (as they are). They played long games without Alex Caruso, Lonzo Ball, Javonte Green and Derrick Jones Jr. – Caruso is in the middle of the second longest interval.
Then there was the absence of last year’s fourth overall pick, Patrick Williams. Still, Billy Donovan has been arguably the best coach in basketball and has kept his players in first place in the East for most of the year.
This week, however, the Bulls are likely to make at least one move, and it could start with Boston Celtics point guard Dennis Schroder. According to a recent report, it is rumored that Bulls are on Schroder.
The Chicago Bulls likely won’t stop after their pursuit of Dennis Schroder, as rumors swirl around an NBA deal deadline.
Each Matt Moore belong to Action Network, the Bulls and the Milwaukee Bucks all have an offer on the table for Schroder. However, no one knows what those offers entail.
There were whispers on Bulls twitter that the Celtics wanted Coby White, but the Bulls provided a package centered around Troy Brown Jr.
Schroder is having a stable season for Boston, having started 25 games. He’s averaging 14.3 points on 43.6 percent shots, along with 4.4 assists and 3.3 rebounds.
If the Bulls land Schroder, they probably won’t finish. Having Schroder, along with Ayo Dosunmu – who was left in tears recently – the Bulls will be fine until Lonzo Ball returns from injury.
But, that makes Coby White the odd man out. Or not?
If the Bulls can take down Schroder without giving up White, then they can transfer White to a team like the Atlanta Hawks in a multiplayer deal to get John Collins.
The Hawks are widely known to only offer every player at the moment, as long as they don’t have the names Trae Young or Clint Capela. Collins is in the first year of a five-year contract and is being paid $25 million annually, which isn’t nearly as precious as he could become.
If the Bulls make trades for both Schroder and Collins, you can choose them as your Eastern Conference Champion.
Picture a sane team that has DeMar DeRozan, LaVine, Ball, Nikola Vucevic, Collins, Dosunmu, Schroder and Caruso as the seven main players in the rotation.
