Late Monday night, the Chicago Bulls finally pulled the trigger on Luol Deng by trading the small forward to the Cleveland Cavaliers. In exchange, the Cavs have sent center Andrew Bynum, in addition to three draft picks.
Due to the deal, Chicago will acquire one first-round pick and two second-round picks in 2014. Andrew Bynum will become a salary dump, as the Bulls will waive the center before Tuesday. This move will be done to avoid paying the $12.3 million owed to Bynum.
We predicted for the Chicago Bulls to begin rebuilding their organization soon, an idea that Bulls’ star point guard Derrick Rose didn’t agree to.
The next move for the Bulls would be to amnesty forward Carlos Boozer. Once that’s complete, Chicago will have enough cash to move in and sign Real Madrid’s star Nikola Mirotic, a player that the team acquired in 2011.
This season was Luol Deng’s 10th year with Chicago. In 637 games, Deng averaged 16.1 points, 6.4 rebounds, and 2.5 assists with the Bulls.
