1. Aaron Gordon

The first name Chicago could go after is one that was on the trade block this past season. Orlando Magic forward Aaron Gordon is still only 24 years old and offers a world of potential. On a team like the Bulls, with tons of young talent, he could help present some fun lineups.

Last year, Orlando tried trading him. However, they did not get any offers with the assets they would have liked in return. For the Bulls, they could offer the Magic something along the lines of an expiring contract and the no. 4 overall pick.

If the Magic indeed attempted to trade Gordon last year and failed to gain fruitful offers, this one would be tough to pass up. They clearly want to move him. So, getting an expiring deal like Porter along with the no. 4 overall pick would be a pretty strong haul.

For the Bulls, the next question would be, what do they do with Markkanen? Could he make the shift to playing the three? Or, do they try and trade Markkanen, then?

Regardless, the excitement and athleticism Gordon brings to a lineup with LaVine could make for some electric highlight reels. Gordon still has a ceiling to reach, and maybe a shift in environment could help him get there.
