The Chicago Bulls have been included in several trade rumors. Some potential deals may include a bad contract or two.

The day has finally come. It has already been a long, grueling offseason for the Chicago Bulls due to no playoff appearance but, finally, fans have something to be excited about. It’s time for the 2019 NBA Draft.

Before all of the madness goes down tonight, the league may see even more action, following what we have seen over the last couple of weeks. Already, there have been a number of deals struck between teams for various reasons.

The most notable, of course, was that of Anthony Davis and his uniting with LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers. Davis left New Orleans and the Pelicans received a haul in exchange for the big man.

Other moves included the deal between the Atlanta Hawks and Brooklyn Nets, which ended with the former now owning three picks in this year’s first round. Also, more recently, the Memphis Grizzlies dealt point guard Mike Conley to the Utah Jazz and made out pretty nicely in that transaction as well, with a couple of players and a pair of first round picks.

Now the question is: What will the Bulls do, if anything? They have already been included in several rumors up to this point, so will John Paxson and Gar Forman decide to pull the trigger on a trade tonight?

Some of the deals which might be available could include one of those nasty contracts — you know, like Andrew Wiggins. While we’ve already covered Wiggins a bit, the next few guys are some you may see dealt today. Could the Bulls be able to take them on? Let’s analyze, shall we?
