A bit of an overhaul in Chicago, the Bulls would send Kris Dunn, Cristiano Felicio, Antonio Blakeney, and two 2nd round picks to the Suns in exchange for Milwaukee’s 2020 first round selection.

This deal works out great for both teams, as the Bulls shed some salary and receive a first round pick while the Suns get two young guards in Blakeney and Dunn while also receiving two second round picks that are projected to be just after the first rounder they give up in the deal.

The price to pay may be heavy to shed the salary by Felicio, but this is the only way it would be possible to do so and get any return at all. With the late first round pick the Bulls can add depth to what hopefully is a young playoff roster while the Suns get some much needed point guard depth and increase their draft capital, as Phoenix still has its own first round selection.

Bulls fans have been fed up with Dunn and Felicio for some time, and although a trade such as this is not anticipated by most fans, the deal makes sense for the Bulls both long-term and short-term, as the Bulls get a first-rounder and clear more than $15 million for 2019-2020.
