Report: Bulls looking for trade partner for Kris Dunn
The Chicago Bulls made a couple of moves in free agency on Sunday that should have a significant impact on the team next season, and they are now reportedly looking for ways to shake things up via the trade market.
Jake Fischer of Sports Illustrated reported on Monday that the Bulls are looking to trade point guard Kris Dunn.

A separate report at the start of the offseason indicated Dunn’s trade value was practically nonexistent, so that probably has not changed much. The former No. 5 overall pick has not developed into a starting-caliber guard in his time with the Bulls and Minnesota Timberwolves, though he’s still only 25.
There have been rumblings dating back to last summer that the Bulls are unhappy with Dunn’s work ethic, which has likely has made him even less attractive to other teams. Dunn averaged 11.3 points, 6.0 assists and 4.1 rebounds while playing 30.2 minutes per game last season.
Chicago signed Tomas Satoransky on Sunday to help bolster their backcourt depth, and that move has made Dunn more expendable. They also signed Thaddeus Young to a three-year deal.
