NBA Trade Rumors: Bulls Shopping Luol Deng, Pushing for Two Max Players

Here's another piece to add to the free agency puzzle.

According to ESPN, the Chicago Bulls are trying to trade Luol Deng and their No. 17 overall pick to the Clippers for their No. 8 overall pick. This would clear up some cap space and give the Bulls a higher pick. It's a win/win for both teams.

It was also said that Chicago is looking for two max players.

With some educated sources, supposedly the big-timers like Dwyane Wade and LeBron James have already decided where to go.

A "domino effect," as it has been called, should take place when LeBron and Wade choose where to go. This could work in the Chicago Bulls favor or against them.

If LeBron chooses to come to Chicago, an ideal situation would be Chris Bosh to follow him. Also, if this trade takes place, Xavier Henry should be on the board at No. 8.

Henry is a solid shooting guard straight out of his freshman year who could handle the Bulls' shooting problems and bring hard work to Chicago.

Again, this may not happen, but it's true that the Chicago Bulls are pushing to make a big splash.
