The Chicago Bulls have intensified their trade talks centered on Robin Lopez.
Lopez has one more season remaining on his four-year, $54 million deal he signed in 2015 with the Knicks.
The Bulls are still below the salary cap floor and could take on bad contracts in exchange for a future asset.
“Trades are part of the business,” Lopez said. “Guys are used to it. At the end of the day, it’s just us and the other team and basketball. I don’t think anybody is focused on anything else.”
