Bulls: People are gonna underestimate how much Patrick Williams injury is gonna hurt this team. A good defender, can get out in transition, and knows what roles to fill on offense and when to fill them. Elite potential, but what makes him so great now is his ability to just be a solid role player, thats what chicago needs. Enter Nic Batum. He'll bring toughness, he'll bring defense, and he'll bring shooting. He's not gonna take touches away from the big guns, he'll just amplify their talents. I am personally very low on Keon, but he has potential and could in time fill an Iman Shumpert type role in the league.

Clippers: Paul George can't do it by himself. He is the only scoring option that brings even a little bit of gravity. Enter Coby White (when he returns from injury). While not an elite high efficiency scorer, he still puts the ball in the basket. With the size to play point guard or shooting guard, and the wherewithal to know when to get Paul George the rock, he would be a perfect fit on this Clippers squad, as a Reggie Jackson with potential. I am not super high on DJJ, consider him more of a throw in than anything.
