Andy Bailey of Bleacher Report proposed the following trade concept in between the Grizzlies and Bulls:

The Trade: Luke Kennard, Derrick Rose and a 2027 lottery-protected first-round choice for Nikola Vučević

Vucevic appeared in 76 video games for the Bulls this season. He balanced 18.0 points, 10.5 rebounds and 3.3 helps while shooting 48.4% from the field, 29.4% from beyond the arc and 82.2% from the free-throw line. 

A two-time All-Star, Vucevic will make $20 million next season. 

The Bulls and Grizzlies missed out on the playoffs this year. Chicago went 39-43, while Memphis completed 27-55. 

“Jaren Jackson Jr. got a chance to spread his wings a bit as both a 5 and as a more heavily featured scoring option this season, but not having Steven Adams around to take on the more bruising aspects of the position affected the team defense,” Bailey composed. “The Grizzlies were outside the leading 10 in points enabled per 100 belongings and in the bottom 10 for protective rebounding portion. And Jackson got simply 5.5 boards per video game.

“Vučević isn’t the brute Adams is as a defender and rebounder, but he would spare Jackson some punishment inside, could take on heftier defensive assignments and allow JJJ to return to his more natural defensive position of rover.”

Vucevic has profession averages of 17.1 points, 10.5 rebounds and 2.8 helps with the Orlando Magic and Bulls. He turns 34 in October. 

The Grizzlies are anticipated to contend for the champion next season considering that Ja Morant and Desmond Bane will be healthy. If Bailey’s trade proposition occurred, Memphis might begin Morant, Marcus Smart, Bane, Jackson Jr. and Vucevic. 

Morant just played 9 video games this season due to a suspension and a shoulder injury that needed surgical treatment. The Grizzlies were last in the NBA in points per video game. They will be more explosive offensively next season with Morant back in the fold.
