How could a potential trade package work out between the Sacramento Kings and Chicago Bulls involving 6-foot-4 shooting guard Buddy Hield?
Trade rumors caught wind with two big names around the NBA since the trade deadline ended. Between star center Joel Embiid of the Philadelphia 76ers and shooting guard Buddy Hield of the Sacramento Kings, trade discussions got pretty interesting in the days following the 2020 deadline (Feb. 6). This will give rebuilding teams like the Chicago Bulls new potential trade targets entering the 2020 offseason.
Yet, maybe the most intriguing of the potential trade targets that could emerge for the Bulls during the coming offseason that sits in speculation mode thus far is Hield. The thought of what the Bulls could do with a backcourt rotation of the future that encompass Hield alongside rookie 6-foot-5 point guard Coby White and 6-foot-6 shooting guard Zach LaVine could be very promising.
But if Hield was to hit the trade block, then there would definitely be other suitors that jump into discussions. Hield is one of the better shooters in the NBA today, and his type of skill set definitely wouldn’t go without a ton of attention around the entire league in trade conversations.
What caused this rumor mill to churn surrounding Hield’s situation with the Kings was the reported displeasure he has in his role with the team this season. Apparently Hield could be forced into demanding a trade this summer if the Kings don’t get him into a more desirable situation by season’s end.
Here’s a look into the four possible offseason trade packages that the Chicago Bulls could piece together with the slipping Sacramento Kings this year to get former Oklahoma Sooners shooting guard Buddy Hield.
