Could the Chicago Bulls become an ideal trade partner for the recently-swept Nets?

It’s an intriguing question, to say the least. The Chicago Bulls may not be the same team they are by next season’s start. Meanwhile, the Brooklyn Nets have a much-anticipated 2020-2021 campaign awaiting them.

The Nets were recently swept by the defending champion Toronto Raptors, and all but one game were blowouts. The roster, as it stands though, wasn’t built to withstand a playoff run. However, next year? That’s a different story.

Next season, the Nets will get back both Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant, both of whom missed significant time this past season — Durant missing the entirety of the year and Irving playing just 20 games.

Getting Irving and Durant back instantly makes them a contender in the East, but one more piece just might put them over the top.

Back to the Bulls, now. Under new Vice President Arturas Karnisovas, the team could look differently in just his first offseason with the organization. If he sees potential to add future assets or build upon the players he wants to see stick around, don’t be shocked to see a major deal go down.

The Nets may also have one heck of a turnaround at their head coaching position, of which there are tons of rumors floating around. One of them has Gregg Popovich leaving San Antonio to coach Brooklyn — wouldn’t that be something.

If the Bulls and Nets were to engage in talks, let’s take a look at some deals that would benefit both sides.
