The Bulls in this trade cleans up their roster a bit while the Hornets still get better but also tank for Wembyama (added bonus they can market the Ball brothers). This deal is all about what I think Kai Jones can be a good starter who plays defense and hit 3’s. Also I think I’d the Bulls are going to win the championship Lavine has to be their best player. Starting Lavine allows him not to be passive. Derozen will still get his. The Bulls make this trade if you believe two things Lavine can be a superstar on par with the likes of Donavan Mitchel and that Kai Jones can anchor a defense. He doesn’t even have to be as good as JJ but someone like Ocongwu on the Hawks in limited minutes if you don’t believe in those two statements then you won’t make this deal.
