The NBA trade rumor mill is picking up steam as of late, and the Chicago Bulls may as well consider going after some of the bigger names.

What are the odds Gar Forman and John Paxson execute a deal before this year’s trade deadline? The Chicago Bulls are, after all, playing host to the NBA’s All Star Weekend which is typically within a week or so of the deadline. They could go for the jugular, in terms of being the center of attention for a few days.

It seems like this team needs to make a move to shake things up. They have yet to find a true star in the NBA Draft Lottery over the last few years, and appear to once again be heading no where fast in another lost season.

If the Bulls want to make a deal this year, they have to go big — or at least noteworthy. Maybe we’ll call it “buzz-worthy.”

I’d like to see Chicago make a trade involving a player involved in some of the more talked about rumors. Let’s see a guy come to the Bulls who could change things for the better in one way or another.

What do Forman and Paxson have to lose, other than more basketball games? Answer: Not a whole lot — except maybe their jobs. But, that’s a tender topic for another day.

So, which guys have been amongst trade talks and rumors lately? I mean, the guys who have been reportedly talked about by the reliable, credible sources out there. This ain’t no fluff. The following are deals involving three key players whom find themselves in legitimate trade rumors at this very moment.
