It appears that the Chicago Bulls’ exploration of the trade market may extend beyond just Zach LaVine. DeMar DeRozan could also be part of potential trade discussions.

DeRozan and the Bulls are currently at a considerable distance in extension talks.

The player is in the final year of a three-year deal, initially signed in a sign-and-trade with the San Antonio Spurs in the summer of 2021.

The negotiations for an extension involve significant gaps in both the number of years and financial terms.

In their efforts to reshape the team and manage the salary cap, the Bulls might be considering a trade involving DeRozan.

There are indications that DeRozan is closely monitoring the developments in LaVine’s trade discussions with Chicago.
