At the beginning of any NBA season, we should be careful not to rush to judgment. With that said, any season eventually hits a point where we can start to draw conclusions. 

Ladies and gentlemen – welcome to that time in the 2022-23 NBA season. By now, we have some idea of where most of the league’s teams stand.

With that in mind, we can start to make predictions about what kinds of moves they may make. 

Many seem to be predicting the demise of the Chicago Bulls. That shouldn’t come as a shock. At 9-14, they’ve been one of the disappointing teams in the NBA. 

For that reason, rumors are beginning to circulate. Some have suggested that the Bulls figure to be big sellers at the trade deadline. We couldn’t wait that long to start cooking up some hypothetical Bulls deals. 

Here are three bold ideas in case they decide to tear it down now. 


Los Angeles Lakers Swing Big

Los Angeles Lakers Receive: G/F DeMar DeRozan, C Nikola Vucevic 

Chicago Bulls Receive: G Russell Westbrook, 2027 First-Round Pick (LAL), 2029 First-Round Pick (LAL)
