New Warriors trade rumors leading to speculation of Bulls involvement

The Chicago Bulls have a ton of players on the roster who other teams could want to trade for at the deadline. With Chicago sitting in the middle of the pack, they are expected to be one of the top sellers, with guys like Zach LaVine, DeMar DeRozan, Nikola Vucevic, and Alex Caruso all potentially being shipped out to new homes.

LaVine’s name has been the most popular in rumors. He’s been connected to a bunch of teams, including the Sacramento Kings and Los Angeles Lakers. Caruso is often seen as one of the best role players who could potentially be available. But Nikola Vucevic might be the most intriguing name to watch in relation to one team.

According to Tim Kawakami of The Athletic, the Golden State Warriors are looking to add a big man who can score the ball well.

“There has been some talk about maybe just go get a 7-footer who can score,” Kawakami said on 95.7 The Game.

While there was no direct mention of Vucevic, people on Twitter were quick to connect the Bulls big man to the Warriors as a potential target.

Vucevic missed five games from the end of December to the start of January, but other than that, he’s put together a solid season. He’s averaging 16.7 points, 10.4 rebounds, and 3.4 assists while shooting 45.7% from the field and 26.9% from behind the three-point line.

His struggles from distance have been prominent, but he could still make a real impact for the Warriors, and it could make sense for the Bulls to capitalize on his value now while he’s in the first year of his new extension.
