The NBA off-season has not been very kind to the Chicago Bulls as they have failed to add much talent this summer. With the injury to All-Star Derrick Rose likely costing the point guard much of the upcoming season, the team might need to make a trade to acquire the talent they need to compete with Boston and Miami.
The latest from Bleacher Report writer Paul Grossinger suggests the team could use Luol Deng at some point in the next few months as trade bait with Andre Iguodala of Philadelphia as the target.
Both players entered the league as first round draft picks in the 2004 draft, but recent rumblings could have both players on the move at some point next season.
Deng has averaged 16 points and six rebounds in his career, but his move to play in the upcoming Olympics has rubbed the Bulls front office the wrong way, especially with the injury to Rose and a move could come before the season starts. Iguodala's numbers basically mirror that of Deng, but the 76ers forward is slightly better with ball handling skills and could be used to help run the offense until Rose returns.
The NBA off-season could have several trades, but one like this could actually benefit both franchises and help both players with a change of scenery, making this a win-win for everyone involved and the fans of both teams.
