Proposed Trade Sees Chicago Bulls Swap Two Core Pieces for Former No. 1 Pick

Chicago Bulls center Nikola Vucevic had one of his better games of the 2022-23 season on Wednesday night, scoring 21 points, hitting eight of his 12 shot attempts and adding 13 boards, three assists and two blocked shots for good measure.

Without his efforts, the Bulls may not have been able to get back on the winning track against a Brooklyn Nets team that got a 44-point gem out of Kevin Durant and had entered the game as winners of 12 straight.

Nevertheless, one can’t shake the feeling that the two-time NBA All-Star isn’t the right player to man the pivot for the Bulls. And even if he was, the team is facing the prospect of losing him with no return in the summer when he becomes an unrestricted free agent; for his part, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski believes Vucevic will be a hot commodity.

With that in mind, NBC Sports Chicago’s Rob Schaefer just examined a hypothetical trade that would see the Bulls move Vooch and the elder half of the team’s star duo for one of the best young big men in the game.

Proposed Blockbuster Bring Deandre Ayton to the Bulls

Schaefer sourced a number of trade proposals on social media for a recent feature analyzing the 11 best that he could find. One of them represented a seismic change in direction for the Bulls who, despite showing flashes of potential in games like Wednesday’s, have underperformed amid Lonzo Ball’s injury and an awkwardly-constructed roster.
