When the Lakers sent Russell Westbrook to Utah before the trade deadline, it was never expected that he would stay there. He hasn't officially been bought out by the Jazz yet, but the expectation is that he will be soon, and when that happens, the indication is that he will join the Chicago Bulls prior to the All-Star break, per Bulls reporter Sami Hassan. 

Earlier this week, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Chicago Bulls were "a frontrunner" to sign Westbrook, while Bleacher Report's Chris Haynes reported that the Bulls and Heat would be Westbrook's top two choices.
