Per Jamal Collier of ESPN, the Bulls will only move Caruso if they are “blown away” by an offer.
Meanwhile, Hoops Wire reported last week the Dosunmu is available, but that too would come at a high price, sources said. The Bulls are about .500 entering the week, and there’s a sense they could make another run to the playoffs with the roster as is.
- As we relayed here, the Bulls are expected to keep their veteran core of wing DeMar DeRozan, guard Zach LaVine and center Nikola Vucevic together beyond Thursday’s trade deadline. That can change, of course, but that seems to be the general feeling around the NBA.
- For now, the Bulls are telling teams that LaVine will not be traded, per Marc Stein of The Stein Line.
- That said, center Andre Drummond could likely be had, as the Bulls are actively shopping him, sources said. Drummond is averaging a career-low 13 minutes a game in his first year with Chicago.
- According to sources and reports, the Bulls have an interest in Jazz guard Mike Conley, Nuggets guard Bones Hyland and Hornets guard Terry Rozier, among others.
Kyrie Irving is Dallas-bound, but was never really on the radar for the Bulls, despite a report. Update on how serious Irving to the Bulls was, some Russ Westbrook chatter, and what's next?
