The NBA Draft is two days away, but trade rumors have begun to heat up. ESPN’s Marc Stein has reported that the Chicago Bulls are in talks with the Washington Wizards about dealing forward Luol Deng to Washington for their no. 3 pick in Thursday’s draft.
The Wizards reportedly would send forward Emeka Okafor to the Bulls as well for the two time all-star.
But it seems that Washington is not the only team interested in trading for Deng. The Cleveland Cavaliers have also expressed their interest in considering a deal that would send their no. 1 pick to Chicago.
It seems as if the Bulls have looked to deal Deng for a few years now, but a deal was never done. It looks like this is the offseason that the Bulls finally decide to part ways.
