Is there a move for the Chicago Bulls to either land guard D’Angelo Russell from the Golden State Warriors or be the third team in a deadline splash deal?
The hot team in trade talks with the Golden State Warriors to land the standout guard D’Angelo Russell at the moment is the Minnesota Timberwolves. It seems like the Timberwolves kept tabs on D-Lo and the Warriors since the start of the 2019-20 regular season. But they are finally making moves that are getting reported ahead of the start of the 2020 trade deadline. This doesn’t mean that a team that needs a star scoring guard like the Chicago Bulls shouldn’t at least reach out to the Warriors to get a status check on D-Lo.
There’s not that many players on the trade market entering the 2020 deadline that have as bright of a future at not an enormous price tag as D-Lo. Granted we don’t quite know what the Warriors will be asking the Timberwolves to pry D-Lo out of their grasp. They had to work hard to get him from the Brooklyn Nets last offseason.
According to a report from Kevin O’Connor at The Ringer, one possibility that was mentioned between the Warriors and Timberwolves was the former No. 1 overall draft pick and small forward Andrew Wiggins landing in the Bay Area. Wiggins at least would help the Timberwolves match salaries with the Warriors to snag D-Lo.
But a conflicting report from Shams Charania of The Athletic states that the the Warriors are moving on from discussions with the Timberwolves since they can’t come to a point of agreement.
Maybe this would be the opportunity a team like the Bulls would be looking for if they were to move in on D-Lo trade discussions.
Here’s a look into three possible trade packages that the Chicago Bulls could piece together if they were to try and land D’Angelo Russell from the Golden State Warriors.
