What does the loss of Bobby Portis mean for the Bulls? The guys discuss Portis’ time with the Bulls, why he was ultimately dealt, what his feelings might be, and what his value is going to be in restricted free agency this summer.

Bulls Trade Deadline Countdown: Lakers check in on Jabari Parker

According to ESPN Insider Brian Windhorst, the Los Angeles Lakers could be looking to move Kentavious Caldwell-Pope in a non-Anthony Davis deal before the trade deadline. Enter the Bulls and Jabari Parker.



Lakers interested in Bulls Jabari Parker - Locked On Bulls

Locked On Bulls is back with a fresh episode, the guys start the show talking about the Bulls only real news of the Trade Deadline Week coming from ESPN Insider Brian Windhorst who said the Los Angeles Lakers may have interest in Jabari Parker.

Windhorst said on The Hoop Collective podcast this week that the Lakers have not discussed any deals for Anthony Davis that have included guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. Enter the Chicago Bulls. Windhorst has said that he is not guaranteeing a deal being done by Thursday’s deadline but would not be surprised if Jabari Parker was on the Lakers in the next few days. K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports that the Jazz checked in about Parker’s services (no word if this was recent, they did check in back in late December).

The guys also talk about Windhorst’s quote “Bulls really like Caldwell-Pope” and whether or not they buy that or if it was just an assist to the Lakers, LeBron James, and Rich Paul. Locked On Bulls talks through a few trade scenarios, why this deal would only be done if Caldwell-Pope approves of a trade, and why Chicago would more than likely buy him out in any deal.

Locked On Bulls day two of talking about the NBA Trade Deadline includes what the Bulls trade scenarios should look like from Jordan, Matt, and Bulls listeners. Should the Bulls take a look at some of the wings available in Phoenix? What’s the real value of Bobby Portis and Kris Dunn together? What can they bring you separately?

Jordan has a three-way deal including the Bulls, Grizzlies, and Jazz. Bulls listeners ask about a possible backcourt break up of McCollum and Lillard (deadline and offseason) and if there is any interest in Frank Ntilikina. Finally, would you trade the Bulls core players for Anthony Davis (minus Lauri Markkanen) and trade him this summer for a new young core? The guys discuss all of these topics and so much more on Locked On Bulls.

Bulls have plenty to think about with the NBA trade deadline looming

Will the Bulls find value on the trade market for Bobby Portis? Are they actually going to trade for a veteran point guard? Are the Bulls just going to stand pat? NBA Trade Deadline week is here!



Bulls head into NBA Trade Deadline week with way more questions than answers - Locked On Bulls

Locked On Bulls is back with a fresh episode, the guys split the episode between breaking down the weekend’s action against the Charlotte Hornets and kicking off all the rumors flying around leading up to this week’s NBA Trade Deadline.

Bobby Portis for a second consecutive game put on a show for the Chicago Bulls, have we finally turned a corner on seeing a completely healthy and confident Portis from a year ago? Or is Portis’ string of two games simply a mirage mixed with middling Eastern Conference teams and lack of Bulls offense? The guys discuss his monster first half and how the Bulls lack of adjustments in the second half led to another loss late in the fourth quarter.

The Charlotte Hornets scored 74 points in the second half and outscored the Bulls from the three-point line 33-to-9 to fight their way to a win. The guys discuss how the Bulls had one of their best performances getting to the free throw line this season but the Hornets were matching every move made. Locked On Bulls talks about the real concern about Jim Boylen’s philosophy against shooting threes and the Bulls lack of three-point shooting talent.

As the NBA Trade Deadline approaches on Thursday (3 p.m. E.T.), Locked On Bulls begins some of their discussions about possible trade scenarios the Bulls might be involved in. The guys highlight the small, but laughable cash considerations move they made on Friday which included a salary dump from Oklahoma City. The guys discuss what Bobby Portis’ value is on the trade market, whether or not the Bulls will seriously consider dealing him, and where he fits best. The guys also circle back to the Bulls interest last week in Ricky Rubio and how there are too many layers to make it all fit right for the Bulls to nab him. All of this and so much more on Locked On Bulls.

Chicago Bulls will be players for Anthony Davis… in a decade

Anthony Davis has made it clear he wants to win now. Coming home to Chicago in the prime of his career, unfortunately, will not put him on the path to do so.



Chicago Bulls will be players for Anthony Davis... at the tail end of his prime - Locked On Bulls

Locked On Bulls is back with a fresh episode, the guys talk about the three biggest topics surrounding the Chicago Bulls this weekend including Chandler Hutchison’s hairline fracture in his right toe, back-to-back home losses to the Clippers and Cavaliers, and Anthony Davis requesting a trade from the New Orleans Pelicans.

The guys start with rookie forward Chandler Hutchison’s injury revealed on Saturday. The guys discuss how the Bulls found out about Hutchison’s acute injury to a sesamoid bone in his right foot which occurred in their loss to Atlanta on Wednesday night. The guys discuss how he was allowed to play 41-minutes against the Clippers on Friday, whether or not the Bulls were aware of the injury, why Jim Boylen’s comments about his toughness to play through it were wrong, and how long it’s going to keep the rookie wing out.

Locked On Bulls dives into Friday night’s loss to the Los Angeles Clippers – was it a good battle against a team looking to fight for a playoff spot? The guys think not so much. A team coming off four games in six nights on the road, stuck in traffic for two hours before tip-off, and missing key players managed to pull off a win sleepwalking against a Bulls team who could not close.

The Bulls hosted the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday afternoon for the final time, losing 104-101. A game in which the Cavaliers were actively trying to lose, the guys talk about the final five minutes in which Lauri Markkanen and Zach LaVine went silent.

To wrap up the show, the guys spend some time talking about the breaking news of the week – Anthony Davis has requested a trade from the New Orleans Pelicans according to multiple reports. Bulls fans have been dreaming of this day but Locked On Bulls brings the harsh reality of why the Bulls will not be players in a deal for him. The guys talk about how Anthony Davis will return and play in Chicago maybe five-to-seven years from now, but he wants to win. The guys also talk about the assets it would take to acquire him, how he is not going to sign an extension in any deal, and so much more on Locked On Bulls.
