NBA Trade Rumors: Exploring three teams that would benefit from targeting Chicago Bulls guard Alex Caruso at the NBA Trade Deadline.

The Chicago Bulls are 16-21 and currently out of the top 10 in the Eastern Conference standings. If the season would end today, it would come with a disastrous outcome for the veteran-laden Bulls in which they would not even qualify for the Play-In Tournament.

Since the jump this season, the Bulls have left much to be desired and are considered to be a disappointment. So much so that it could prompt some change at the NBA Trade Deadline. Even though the team may not be there at the moment, you can’t help but wonder if they could emerge as a seller in a few weeks.

The Chicago Bulls have a few players that could be poached at the NBA Trade Deadline

As you would expect, the likes of DeMar DeRozan and Zach LaVine are two players that many teams around the league will be keeping their eyes on. But in addition to those two big names, there is another player that teams around the league are reportedly looking to poach heading into the NBA Trade Deadline.

One of those players is veteran guard Alex Caruso. He was signed by the team two offseasons ago but would make more sense and would provide a more valuable service for a team that is in the playoff chase. Quite frankly, the Bulls are not there yet. And may not get there this season.

It would be smart for the Bulls to try and get something in exchange for a player like Caruso, who could be a wanted commodity at the trade deadline. Whether they ultimately pull the trigger remains to be seen, but we’ll explore three teams that would greatly benefit from having Caruso in their rotation.
