IT BEGINS: NBA Trade Season Tips Off Today at 11:00 CT

Chicago Bulls

Turn on those Woj and Shams notifications, my friends, because the NBA trade season is upon us.

At 11:00 p.m. CT the NBA will lift the transaction moratorium and allow teams to deal with contract negotiations and trade talks. And that means we will be on high alert starting in just a couple hours … even if things are expected to start with something less than a bang:

So while the Bulls may not be in an ideal position to strike in free agency given their cap limitations (especially now that Otto Porter Jr. picked up his $28.4M player option for 2020-21), the trade market could be a more fruitful way to enact meaningful change. With a brand new front office on board and a fresh coaching and development staff finally in place, not to mention the No. 4 pick in the upcoming draft, the team has more motivation and ability to overhaul the roster than they’ve had in years.

And, hey, the rumors have already begun:

So stay tuned, everybody. Things might start to get interesting VERY soon.
