The first few weeks of this NBA season has not gone exactly how most Chicago Bulls fans would have anticipated.
At 7-10, the Bulls currently sit outside looking in at the Eastern Conference playoff picture. At one point losing six of seven games and currently 4-6 in their last 10, the Bulls are simply not a good team — and it’s tough to figure out why.
Some believe that Billy Donovan may have lost the team. Some could say that the Bulls haven’t had their brightest stars show up the way they’ve been needed. And maybe both opinions have some merit to them.
The most interesting part of the regular season is still a couple of months away, but if the Bulls want to make a change, they could take advantage of a recent rumor regarding one of the league’s better young forwards.
The Chicago Bulls should finally try to pull off a trade for Atlanta Hawks forward John Collins.
The Hawks currently sit in the eighth seed, but are once again entertaining the idea of trading forward John Collins.
The 25-year-old forward is under contract through the 2024-2025 season and is owed a good chunk of change — over $78 million beyond the current campaign. And, despite his production, the Hawks seem weary about his future in Atlanta. Collins is talented, but the Hawks have had a hard time getting him full involved.
If Atlanta is attempting to trade the stud forward, Chicago could be a great landing spot. But, what would the Bulls have to give up in order to not only trade enough value, but take on his contract?
There are a couple of deals that could get it done, but the question remains whether or not Atlanta would pull the trigger. Let’s examine both trades for Collins, here.
