Report: Bulls have no plans to move Kris Dunn as of now even if there was a trade market calling for him

Bulls, Kris Dunn

As of now, the Chicago Bulls reportedly have no plans to trade point guard Kris Dunn even if there was a trade market calling for him, according to Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times.

The Bulls drafted North Carolina point guard Coby White in the 2019 NBA Draft. Bulls vice president of basketball operations John Paxson wants White and Dunn to battle each other in training camp to earn the starting spot for next season.

A source indicated that as of now the Bulls have no plans to move Dunn – even if there was a trade market calling for him – and Paxson said they feel comfortable going into the season letting White and Dunn battle it out in training camp.

This past season, Dunn played in 46 games. He averaged 11.3 points, 4.1 rebounds and 6.0 assists while shooting 42.5 percent from the field, 35.4 percent from beyond the arc and 79.7 percent from the free-throw line. The Bulls are hoping Dunn will take the next step in his development in 2019-20. Otherwise, White could start for Chicago in his rookie season.

The Bulls acquired Dunn from the Minnesota Timberwolves in the summer of 2017 in the Jimmy Butler trade. Zach LaVine and Lauri Markkanen were also acquired in that trade. Both guys have turned into gems for the Bulls, while Dunn’s standing with the team is still up in the air.
