Bulls Exploring Kris Dunn Trade

The Bulls are searching for a trade to move point guard Kris Dunn, who’s spent the past two seasons with the organization, according to Jake Fischer of Sports Illustrated (Twitter link).

Dunn has dealt with various injuries during his time with Chicago, appearing in just 98 of a possible 164 games. He averaged 11.3 points, six assists, 1.5 steals and 30.2 minutes in 46 contests last season.

Dunn started his career with the Wolves and was traded to the Bulls as part of a Jimmy Butler package just one year after being drafted. Chicago also agreed to acquire Tomas Satoransky in a sign-and-trade with Washington and drafted Coby White in June, meaning Dunn could wind up being the odd man out of the rotation at point guard.

Several teams that have previously shown interest in adding a point guard have already found their respective resolutions, such as Boston with Kemba Walker, Phoenix with Ricky Rubio, Brooklyn with Kyrie Irving Charlotte with Terry Rozier and the Clippers with Patrick Beverley.

    If the Lakers had players too trade I would say them but they don’t . So be interesting to see who would want him.

      I think they would have to make the trade using cap space. I want to say they have roughly 7 mil left. The TPEs aren’t big enough to accommodate his salary

    Should have packaged him with #38 in the draft to move up. They could have dumped Dunn, stretched Felicio, and had $33 mil in cap space. Oh well. If they trade Dunn now, would it just be a dump to create room to sign another player? Or because they hit the cap, are they just determined to get under the cap to save money?

      To spend on who? Nobody wants to be in Chicago… not until they show some indication that the front office has a clue.

        If you’re talking about now, Zach Lowe just commented that the Bulls have had a good offseason with Thad and Satoransky. They could create space to go after a backup center like Kanter or another wing like Justin Holliday.

    Trade him to the Spurs along with Hutchinson and a pick for Joe Harris!!!

    Dunn is a backup on a decent team, and doesn’t get any minutes on a good team. Can’t imagine anyone will trade real value for him.

    Dallas should trade for him. Someone that has a guard that can shoot, and could use him as a defensive combo guard makes sense
