All the assets it would take for the Chicago Bulls to pry Anthony Davis away from the Los Angeles Lakers might be too much for the front office to work.
The start to the 2019-20 regular season for the Chicago Bulls didn’t go even close to how it was planned so far. After a road win over the Atlanta Hawks on Nov. 6 by a solid double-digit margin, the Bulls own a less than stellar record of 3-6 on the season. The weaker schedule through the first seven games of the regular season was supposed to give the Bulls a good chance at finding good footing in the Eastern Conference standings.
Quite the opposite happened for head coach Jim Boylen and the Bulls since that thought during the preseason that they could win at least four or five of the first seven regular season games.
What can the Bulls do if they really need to stop the bleeding at some point before the trade deadline or next offseason?
It seems like the only solution at this point for the Bulls is for them to reach out and land a true star. That’s really what it appears like the Bulls are missing in the latter stages of games, which is where they tend to lose so much ground. The embarrassing letdown loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Nov. 5 really showed the Bulls in dire straits in terms of landing a star.
Given the recent comments by the Lakers superstar big man Anthony Davis about the basketball culture in his hometown of Chicago, maybe landing him in the near future could be an idea. But he did shut down the rumors that he was interested in landing with the Bulls right now earlier this week.
Here’s a deeper look into three possible updated trade package ideas for the Chicago Bulls in the midst of all the talk for Los Angeles Lakers superstar big man Anthony Davis and his recent comments on basketball in his hometown.
