Storyline: Kris Dunn Trade?

17 rumors in this storyline

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.”
