Clippers interested in Thaddeus Young, Kris Dunn

Lauri Markkanen looks like a guy that needs a change of scenery, but the Bulls would be too paranoid to give up on a talent like that. That leaves Young and Kris Dunn, and that’s about it. Sources have indicated that the Los Angeles Clippers have interest in both, but they could go after Young in a trade, and wait for Dunn, who is a restricted free agent this summer. Either way, not a lot of chips for the Bulls to push into the middle.

Why haven’t the Bulls shed Kris Dunn yet? Both sides want it to happen. Is it simply a matter of the Bulls not wanting to take any salary back without giving up draft picks to dump him? I would think they could trade him if they took back another player on a one-year deal. — Jimmy, Springfield, Oregon It’s that well-worn adage: It takes two teams to make a trade. Demand isn’t high. I’ve written before that I’d be surprised if Dunn is still here past the February trade deadline. At that point, more teams could be motivated to make a deal. As for your scenario, I wouldn’t think adding a player on a one-year deal would dissuade the Bulls. In fact, they’d likely jump at that opportunity.

Darnell Mayberry: “But when I saw him at Summer League in Las Vegas — after the Bulls had drafted White, acquired Satoransky and re-signed Ryan Arcidiacono but before they had re-signed Shaquille Harrison — he wasn’t in a talking mood. Both parties, the Bulls’ public relations staff and Dunn’s agent, either politely denied interview requests or politely requested an attempt not be made. Those two things, as well as Dunn’s refusal, made it clear there is tension (although Dunn greeted team management the same day, with the two sides appearing cordial).”

Darnell Mayberry: “More importantly back on that July day, there seemed to be an “any-day-now” mentality, like Dunn’s side was just waiting on word when a trade would be finalized. I don’t see this situation finding a solution that involves Dunn remaining in Chicago. Too much has been said. Too much has been done. I give Dunn a 20 percent chance of being on the roster on opening night and a zero percent chance of being a Bull past the trade deadline.”

Lowry is certainly going to give it. In all matters. As a member of the players’ association competition committee, he worked with the league in setting up every facet of life for the 22 teams that are now gathered near Orlando for the resumption of the suspended season later this month. He was involved in developing testing protocols, scheduling, what is allowed and what’s not, and has made it clear to his teammates how important that is. He is the franchise’s conduit to a healthy existence.
