(Programming Note: Locked On Bulls was recorded before the Chicago Bulls trade was made, Jordan details the Bulls trade at the beginning of the episode. The Bulls acquired Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot and cash considerations from Oklahoma City. They also waived Carmelo Anthony).
Locked On Bulls is back with a fresh episode, the guys talk about the biggest story in the NBA yesterday with superstar Kristaps Porzingis being traded from the New York Knicks to the Dallas Mavericks. The guys also get into the Chicago Bulls sending scouts to visit veteran point guards Ricky Rubio (Utah Jazz) and Darren Collison (Indiana Pacers) as potential trade deadline acquisitions to help push Kris Dunn.
The guys spend a decent amount of time talking about how the strategy of both the Knicks and Mavericks is risky but could pay off big time for both teams. The guys circle back to how the Bulls situation is a little bit different but they seem to never swing big like other teams. Can the Bulls ever be in a position to acquire a star like Dallas has or has the rebuild been put in reverse with the season they have had?
Locked On Bulls spends some time talking about the latest report from the Chicago Sun-Times' Joe Cowley about the Bulls sending scouts to see veteran point guards Ricky Rubio of the Utah Jazz and Darren Collison of the Indiana Pacers. The report cites that the Bulls are looking to add a veteran guard who can push Kris Dunn and also leave open the option of an expiring contract that gives them flexibility this summer. Is this too late of a project? The guys have some interest in Rubio beyond Kris Dunn because of his connection with Zach LaVine.
The guys go more in depth about Zach LaVine's struggles this season. Jordan asks the question about whether LaVine's difference this year is team (Bulls roster construction), scheme (Jim Boylen as the head coach), or is it Zach LaVine himself? Jordan reveals information he received about LaVine's time in Minnesota before his ACL tear and what was making him so successful there. All of this and so much more on Locked On Bulls.
