The Chicago Bulls’ newly hired front office will have to make important decisions during the offseason, including the future of the current head coach and several players of the team’s squad.

Despite the rumors of the Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks being interested in Zach LaVine (if becomes available), the one player the Chicago Bulls might trade is veteran forward Thaddeus Young.

According to KC Johnson of NBC Sports:

In fact, according to executives from two other teams, Thad Young, not LaVine, is the player considered most readily available. That’s largely based on Young’s displeasure with his role and usage last season, his team-friendly deal that carries only a partial guarantee in 2021-22 and his dependability and professionalism

Young has two years, $27.7 million left on his contract, being a veteran that can help any team with his presence on defense and his ability to ‘stretch’ the floor (35.5 3P%).

With Young being in a pretty tradable contract, the Chicago Bulls might turn his deal in future assets, as the Bulls are re-structuring their young roster.
