It’s been said that you should expect the unexpected. It seems like a contradiction. If it’s unexpected, how are you supposed to expect it? Perhaps “anything can happen” is a better way to express the same concept. We’ll say this confidently – anything can happen in the NBA. That holds especially true on the trade market.

Moves that may have felt unthinkable can suddenly become plausible. It’s just part of what makes the NBA the best sports league in the world. 

For example, the Chicago Bulls were not supposed to be sellers this season. Meanwhile, the Brooklyn Nets were supposed to implode.

Yet, if we were placing bets at the moment, we’d expect the opposite to occur. 

After all, at 9-14, the Bulls have been very disappointing. Meanwhile, the Nets are starting to right their ship.

Could the two sides make a deal this season? 


Chicago Bulls Receive: G/F Ben Simmons 

Brooklyn Nets Receive: G/F Demar DeRozan, C Marko Simonovic
