Yet another big name is about to make a move, but what would it take for the Chicago Bulls to land Russell Westbrook?

This week has been quite the whirlwind in the NBA world, and it isn’t going to slow down anytime soon. The Chicago Bulls have been the center of many rumors regarding the 2020 NBA Draft. Meanwhile, tons of rumors centered around superstar players on the move have continued to gain steam.

One of the biggest reports to come out this week has been the fact that Houston Rockets point guard Russell Westbrook has requested to be traded. Just a year after the Oklahoma City Thunder traded Westbrook to Houston in exchange for multiple draft picks and veteran Chris Paul, he is about to rip the hearts out of Rockets fans.

With the draft just days away and picks likely to be dealt in any Westbrook deal, the question now becomes, where does he land? Westbrook has reportedly narrowed his choices down to the Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Clippers, Milwaukee Bucks and Atlanta Hawks according to some recent rumors.

Yet, could Chicago make it a realistic possibility for Westbrook to land with the Bulls? Whether or not they’re a preference for the All Star guard, Chicago is certainly interested.

For the Bulls, it might seem like a crazy idea. But, what if they decided to strongly pursue a Westbrook trade?

With a new front office and coach, this could get interesting. Maybe Billy Donovan’s previous experience coaching Westbrook is going to come in handy with this situation.

How do the Bulls land Westbrook, though? It would take quite a bit, as we’ve seen recently with Houston’s acquiring him. Let’s see if we can put together some sensible trades for the Bulls.
