The Chicago Bulls made headlines yesterday when they traded veteran guard Alex Caruso to the OKC Thunder for Josh Giddey. 

It was a risky move for Chicago, who took on the promise of the 21-year-old Giddey, who saw his role reduced in the playoffs this season because of his limitations as a shooter. 

The Bulls reportedly turned down a better deal at last year’s deadline, but considering Caruso is on an expiring contract, this might have been the best of what was left, though it’s hard to imagine there weren’t other offers out there. It's not an exciting return unless there is more to come.

Is this a sign that the Bulls are finally rebuilding? We’ll have to wait and see. If so, Zach LaVine could be next and there are already teams rumored to be circling. 

Chicago Bulls rumors: 76ers, Jazz and Zach LaVine 

K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reported that the Zach LaVine trade rumors are heating up again and named some specific possibilities: 

"League sources reiterated that the Bulls remain active on several trade fronts centered on Zach LaVine, including with the Utah Jazz and Philadelphia 76ers. "

The 76ers have been mentioned as a possibility for LaVine in the past, and the Jazz have cap space and a need for another impact player. 

Here is one possible trade with each of them, both which net the Bulls a decent return for LaVine.
