Trade No. 2

Another option for the Bulls, if Dallas was willing to part with different players, is to go after a couple of solid role players. First, Dorian Finney-Smith is as solid of a three-and-D type guy as you could want, if you’re looking for 20-to-25 minutes per game.

He very well could come in and start for the Bulls if they are not ready to hand the job to Otto Porter. Finney-Smith played well in the Mavs’ playoff appearance this year and his next two seasons look incredibly appealing. Finney-Smith is being paid just $4 million per year over the two remaining seasons on his contract.

On top of Finney-Smith, the Mavs would send guard Seth Curry to the Bulls. Curry has finally found his place in the league after establishing himself as a solid shooting option. He’s actually become one of the league’s best three-point specialists, knocking down over 45 percent of his threes last year.

With the Bulls losing LaVine, Curry could end up playing a major role in Chicago. He may not be the starter, as Donovan could opt to start Tomas Satoransky next to White. But, Curry would certainly give them a scoring lift and plenty of minutes off the bench.
