Trade 2: The Chicago Bulls deal a star of their own for Luka Doncic

In the second possible trade, the Bulls would end up dealing a star for a star — plus more. Doncic isn’t just any star player. He might just be the most talented individual player in all of basketball. That said, the Bulls would have to be ambitious with any potential trade offer.

Here, we would see the Bulls sending All Star guard Zach LaVine to Dallas along with Coby White and a pair of first-round picks.

The Mavericks would have an All Star on a relatively affordable contract, but also then have the ability to extend him past the current one year left on his deal. Adding LaVine would give Dallas a player who would work well off the pick-and-roll with a guy like Kristaps Porzingis, whereas Doncic was more of a creator himself.

Although the previous hypothetical trade would give the Mavericks a whopping four first rounders, this one would at least guarantee they get themselves a star in return. LaVine has blossomed into one of the best young players in the game today, and Dallas’ back court wouldn’t be completely empty after losing Luka.
