Bulls would want a pair of first rounders for Alex Caruso

Courtesy of Jack Simone of Bulls Wire The Chicago Bulls are going to be one of the most talked about teams at the trade deadline this year.

Zach LaVine to miss 3-4 weeks with foot injury

Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine will miss 3-4 weeks with what the team is calling “right foot inflammation.” LaVine had initially missed a week undergoing “active rest” to help deal with the injury. With the trade winds surrounding the 2-time NBA All-Star becoming a maelstrom, the likelihood that Lavigne has suited up for the Bulls for the final time seems highly probable. Prior to the injury Lavine was off to a slow start this season, averaging 21.0 points, 4.9 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game on .443/.336/.866 splits. His percentages…

And it continued again in Milwaukee with LaVine’s 20 points coming on five of 19 attempts and DeRozan equally uncharacteristic with three of 14 for…

The Bulls lost 116-102 to the Denver Nuggets on Sunday with their Big Three starters resting, along with Alex Caruso.

CBS ranks Zach Lavine 43 best player in NBA
