Since the Bulls are pretty much bringing aboard a good portion of the Nuggets former front office regime, it makes sense that they take on a lot of the core pieces that were in place in the Mile High City. Between Karnisovas and the former Nuggets director of pro personnel Pat Connelly (now the Bulls vice president of player personnel), there’s a lot in place in the Windy City in significant roles from Denver.

With that in mind, the Bulls could take a risk on taking on money like what Harris brings to the table and they could send out some of the failing draftees and free agent signings from the GarPax-era.

Two players that have sat around trade discussions of late for the Bulls are forward Thaddeus Young and combo guard Tomas Satoransky. Toss third-year power forward Lauri Markkanen into the discussions, and the Bulls have a pretty appealing trade package to send off to the Nuggets.

What the Bulls get in return in this possible trade package is forward Jerami Grant, rookie forward Michael Porter Jr., and the shooting guard Harris. Landing Porter Jr. would be an incredibly intriguing fit with the Bulls and a player that brings true star potential to the table. Grant also comes off his trade restriction on June 29, so he could be deal to the Bulls at that point.
