Chicago Bulls Reportedly Unhappy with Kris Dunn, Eying Point Guard
According to a report from the Chicago Sun-Times, the Bulls may be ready to part ways with Kris Dunn.
Dunn, acquired from Minnesota in the Jimmy Butler trade, averaged 13.4 PPG, 6.0 APG and 2.0 SPG last season, his sophomore campaign.
However, league sources are now saying that the Bulls have become disillusioned with their young point guard, and that Dunn has been “shortcutting” his way through workouts.
Dissatisfied with the former 5th overall pick, Chicago is said to be seeking an upgrade through the upcoming NBA draft.
The Bulls are slated for the 7th pick in the draft. Interestingly, Oklahoma point guard Trae Young ranks seventh in ESPN’s latest mock draft. Young, a freshman sharpshooter often compared to Stephen Curry, led the nation in both scoring (27.4) and assists (8.7) this season, and could inject some spark into Chicago’s 28th-ranked offence.
Sexton is an athletic guard with defensive upside, while the Toronto native Gilgeous-Alexander is tall (6’6) with passing ability. Both could be worthy additions to a Chicago roster that needs all the help that it can get.
