Lauri Markkanen would head to Charlotte (via sign-and-trade) and Devonte Graham would head to New Orleans in the proposed framework. Other specifics aren’t known at this time.
The Bulls have been linked to Ball, a restricted free agent to be, for some time now, as Chicago is looking for a bonafide playmaker to slide in next to Zach LaVine.
Markkanen would provide an excellent floor-spacing big next to LaMelo Ball down in Charlotte, as Markkanen can feast on wide-open looks created by the gifted playmaker.
Graham would be a nice get for the Pelicans, providing a nice scoring boost for them at the guard position.
