NBA Trade Rumors: Chicago Bulls Interested In Acquiring John Wall From The Washington Wizards Before Trade Deadline [VIDEO]
The Chicago Bulls are doing well at the start of the ongoing NBA regular season. But NBA trade rumors online are spreading that they are interested in acquiring John Wall from Washington Wizards as part of their upgrade before the trade deadline.
Currently, the Bulls are holding a 14-13 record and sitting at the 6th spot of the Eastern Conference division. Rumors are saying that they are looking for a superstar to enhance their roster and wants to secure their place in the postseason. And trading for Wall could be the best option for them.
Wall is producing big time numbers for the Wizards leading the team in points (23.7), assists (9.7) and steals (2.3). However, his impressive stats doesn't lead to wins for the team as they continue to slide down the standings. With the current situation of the team, Wall is said to be losing patience and might ask the Wizards to trade him.
With this notion, reports online are now floating that the Bulls are said to be reaching out to the Wizards and asking the availability of Wall. According to NBA Trade Rumors, a proposed trade deal is being recommended between the Wizards and Bulls and could be in the discussion already.
Trade scenario is saying that superstar point guard John Wall will be going to Windy City and join Dwyane Wade and Jimmy Butler while the Wizards will welcome point guard Rajon Rondo, shooting guard Denzel Valentine and small forward Doug McDermott plus the 2017 first-round draft pick of Sacramento Kings (via Chicago).
Having Wall will finally give the Bulls another superstar that they wished for and will definitely give a big boost on their backcourt. The 26-year old 3-time NBA All-Star will simply replace Rondo, who was once suspended by the Bulls for violating a conduct detrimental to the team early this season. There is no doubt that the trio of Wall, Wade, and Butler is something to watch out for other teams like the Cleveland Cavalier and Golden State Warriors.
On the other hand, the Wizards will get in return three solid players for one which is not bad at all. Rondo will somehow replace Wall in the rotation while Valentine and McDermott will be an added depth in the bench for them. The future draft pick from the Kings could be a steal for them also.
The trade will also work under the NBA trade rules and salary cap restriction making it a legal deal for both teams and will be approved by league officials as per checking with ESPN NBA Trade Machine.
Will the Chicago Bulls be able to pull off a trade with the Washington Wizards and acquire John Wall from them?
