There’s three trade packages that the Chicago Bulls front office could piece together to turn around a poor start to the 2019-20 regular season.
The need for the Chicago Bulls at this point of the regular season is clear, they need a star scorer to take this rebuild to the next level. It doesn’t appear as of yet that the Bulls will find that answer with their current personnel in place in the Windy City. But the good news is that they have a young roster that offers a plethora of trade value.
There are also numerous rotation needs that emerged for recently extended (three-year contract) Bulls head coach Jim Boylen over the course of the past dozen games or so.
A start to the 2019-20 regular season that featured yet another key injury that held a usual starter out of multiple games early on brought up a frustrating and recurring theme. Small forward Otto Porter Jr. missed most of the games for the Bulls so far this month due to a lingering ankle injury.
However, all the roster turnover that happened during the offseason makes it difficult for the Bulls to pull off a solid trade with any of the other 29 NBA teams. There’s just too many players locked down until Dec. 15.

Even the Bulls have a handful of potential trade chips they can’t utilize until that Dec. 15 deadline. Their three major free agent signings from the offseason fit the bill there.
Here’s a look into three possible trade packages that could actually work for the Chicago Bulls once the deadline runs up for recently signed free agents to hit the open market once again.
