Packaging a trade deal together that includes Chicago Bulls point guard Kris Dunn and forward Thaddeus Young could bring a hefty return from the Clips.
With the trade deadline approaching fast next month in the NBA, two of the teams that are connected in a lot of swirling rumors at the moment the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Clippers. According to a report from Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times, the Clippers are interested in landing both power forward Thaddeus Young and point guard Kris Dunn.
But the report does mention that the Clippers might wait until the offseason to try and snag Dunn out of free agency. But it might make sense for the Clippers to go ahead and snag Dunn since they would have control of his offer sheet, if they were to have bona fide interest in bringing him to LA.
Since Dunn is a restricted free agent, coming off his rookie contract, next offseason trading for him could be a wise idea for a lot of NBA teams. The Bulls aren’t too likely to invest too much into Dunn this summer since he doesn’t have the long-term value that this team needs at the point guard position.
Last offseason, the Bulls moved forward at point guard by signing Tomas Satoransky from the Washington Wizards and drafting Coby White with the seventh overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft. Sato and White provided mixed results for the Bulls thus far, but are still legitimate options for this franchise.
Young just isn’t working out in the Windy City so far. Head coach Jim Boylen could be using him in such better fashion then he is, but it might be worth while ditching the Young experiment before it goes completely sour.
Here’s a look into four possible trade packages that the Chicago Bulls could put together with the Clippers involving Kris Dunn and Thaddeus Young.
