The Chicago Bulls have been linked with potentially trading up from No. 4 for LaMelo Ball in which they can package that pick and either Lauri Markkanen or Wendell Carter in a deal. “I’ve heard their fans of LaMelo,” said Jonathan Givony on The Lowe Post. “They do have some really good pieces in place. I’m hearing that they like Lauri Markkanen a lot more right now than Wendell Carter. That he’s more of an untouchable.
Any word on which Bulls players have impressed in the bubble? — @tomnacher, via Twitter Given that the focus was mostly on getting the rust out and merely playing 5-on-5 while doing some team bonding in a setting in which the new regime could get to know players personally, I’m not sure I’d put the level of competition even on the summer-league level. That said, I heard the names of Lauri Markkanen and Coby White the most of limited conversations.
