After a season filled with complications and headaches, it may be time for the Chicago Bulls to move on from Kris Dunn… But where should they send him?

Heading into this season, fans expected a year full of development from the Chicago Bulls. Although there were several bumps along the road, there hasn’t been much to complain about when looking at the huge strides among each member of the young core. Each member that is, besides 24-year-old point guard Kris Dunn.

Since the firing of former Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg, Dunn has regressed in almost every way. He has also clearly struggled to play cohesively next to blossoming star Zach LaVine. As Dunn enters the final year of his contract next year, it may be make-or-break for the former No. 5 pick out of Providence.

That contract year may not come in Chicago, though, as the Bulls have reportedly shown interest in other point guards available in this summer’s draft and free agency. If that proves to be the case, it may be best to unload Dunn in pursuit of other options.

Even as a backup, Kris Dunn may struggle to fulfill his role if the Chicago Bulls’ front office is anywhere nearly as enamored with current backup-point guard Ryan Arcidiacono as the fans are.

Dunn is certainly talented, he’s displayed flashes of greatness where he appears to be capable of making a significant difference in the win column; however, it seems he’s suffering from an oversaturated lineup of guards and the inability to get touches in an offense centered around other players.

Removing Dunn from the equation may allow him to unlock his full potential with another team. That begs the question, where could the Bulls send him? With many teams like the Los Angeles Clippers, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Orlando Magic recently filling their holes at point guard, it’s not such a simple question to answer.

That being said, let’s explore some interesting trade destinations (and packages) that may piqué the Chicago Bulls’ interest this summer.
