The Chicago Bulls have been linked with potentially trading up from No. 4 for LaMelo Ball in which they can package that pick and either Lauri Markkanen or Wendell Carter in a deal.
"I've heard their fans of LaMelo," said Jonathan Givony on The Lowe Post. "They do have some really good pieces in place. I'm hearing that they like Lauri Markkanen a lot more right now than Wendell Carter. That he's more of an untouchable.
"Wendell has been a little bit disappointing so far, his first two years. I think it's way too early to give up on him. I think he's going to be a stud when it's all said and done. I think he's at least a starter in the NBA, if not a really good starter. But is that what it takes for them to move up from four to one? It seems like a pretty hefty price to me, but that is what it's going to cost it looks like."
