The Los Angeles Lakers are not weak at many positions on the floor around LeBron James and Anthony Davis, if any. They are a team that is set up to win their second straight NBA championship if all goes right this season. That does not mean that they will be satisfied with their current roster. The Chicago Bulls have an underrated potential trade target to pursue.

The Lakers made big moves in the offseason when they signed Montrezl Harrell in free agency and acquired Dennis Schroder in a trade. This made immediate improvements to their lineup and they could look to make a few more. With both LeBron James and Anthony Davis signing extensions, this franchise has their mindset on becoming the next great dynasty.

This deal will not cause a big stir but it would help the Lakers along the perimeter. The Chicago Bulls are in a position to rebuild their team. They have a new head coach in Billy Donovan and could be heading in a different direction.

The Bulls have been near the bottom of the Eastern Conference for quite some time now and that is something that needs to change. The Bulls have been linked to NBA trade rumors involving Zach LaVine and Lauri Markkanen but this particular deal does not involve either one.

There is a chance for a championship contender and a rebuilding squad to help each other out. Let’s take a look at what that potential deal might look like if it is made.
