Bulls Interested in Rudy Gobert



Rudy Gobert

The Chicago Bulls have reportedly emerged as one of the teams interested in acquiring Utah Jazz defensive superstar Rudy Gobert this offseason, and could look to swing a blockbuster trade, according to Bleacher Report’s Jake Fischer.

Per the report, the Bulls would likely have to include Nikola Vucevic as part of any trade package for Gobert, but would likely have to add even more to the package in order for the Jazz to be enticed.

“Vucevic-for-Gobert seems to make more sense for Chicago, in the Bulls’ efforts to fortify a defensive attack around LaVine. And while Vucevic is generally considered a net negative on the defensive end, the popular package that’s been mentioned by league executives of Vucevic and second-year forward Patrick Williams would introduce the perimeter defender the Jazz have long been said to covet.”
