There are some underrated potential star trade targets out there that the Chicago Bulls should at least look into ahead of the trade deadline.

An overarching storyline to watch for the Chicago Bulls this season will be what transpires on the trade block with newly hired executive vice president of basketball operations Arturas Karnisovas and general manager Marc Eversley. The Bulls are trying to figure things out with this new look front office regime and coaching staff in store this season.

But it will take time for Karnisovas and Eversley to get an improved roster together for first-year head coach Billy Donovan. Donovan himself is still trying to figure out this rotation. The level of improvement that the Bulls showed over the course of the last four games was stark, in a good way.

The Bulls finally got their first win of the regular season slate on the night of Dec. 29, on the road over the Washington Wizards by the final score of 115-107. That came after the Bulls started out their first three games of the regular season winless. They had lost to the Golden State Warriors, Indiana Pacers, and Atlanta Hawks in the three prior games.

There’s one more game that the Bulls get on the road in the nation’s capital before the turn of the calendar year to 2021. They’ll go into their Dec. 31 road meeting with the Wizards for the second game in a row with a record of 1-3.

Maybe the best path forward for this front office and this rebuild in its fourth year is still hitting the trade market to maneuver this rotation around in the best way possible for Donovan. With that in mind, here’s a look at four potential trade targets that the Bulls shouldn’t pass on this season.
