Grade the trade: Bulls continue to botch everything with DeRozan deal

The Chicago Bulls continued their goofy offseason over the weekend by orchestrating a sign-and-trade for DeMar DeRozan to the Sacramento Kings. 

DeRozan to the Kings was something we wrote about a few times, as it seemed like they were the only team with real interest and the ability to add him. 

The Bulls took back Chris Duarte and two second-round picks for DeRozan, as they continue to mismanage assets worse than any team in the NBA. 

It’s been quite a summer when it comes to Chicago taking peanuts on the dollar for guys they could have traded for assets.

The Bulls have now traded Alex Caruso and DeMar DeRozan and allowed Andre Drummond to walk for nothing. 

Their big return is Josh Giddey, Chris Duarte, a couple of second-round picks and a paltry amount of cap space. 

Wasting assets and throwing potential draft capital into the trash has been the theme of the offseason for the Bulls, which is why I have to give the DeRozan trade two grades, one for the deal as a whole and one for the current context.
