The Bulls did make several notable trades. To kick off deadline day, the Bulls traded Wendell Carter Jr., Otto Porter Jr. and two first-round picks to the Orlando Magic for All-Star center Nikola Vučević and Al-Farouq Aminu,, as first reported by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Then the Bulls traded Daniel Gafford and Chandler Hutchison to the Washington Wizards in exchange for Troy Brown Jr. and Mo Wagner, again as reported by Wojnarowski. And right before the deadline, the Bulls flipped Mo Wagner to the Celtics for Daniel Theis, as first reported by our own K.C. Johnson.

The moves make adding Ball this summer during free agency a taller order. As Johnson noted, the "Bulls would have to waive Thad Young and/or Tomáš Satoranský to prepare offer sheet for him this summer." Johnson is also reporting that sign-and-trade talks also in play this summer.

But it's abundantly clear that Artūras Karnišovas and Marc Eversley are prioritizing upgrading the roster at point guard.
