The Chicago Bulls have not shied away from making moves the past couple of seasons. Looks like they’re keeping that same energy heading into the NBA trade deadline.

According to the latest report from Bleacher Report’s Jake Fischer, Chicago has “continued exploring” trade possibilities for Detroit Pistons forward Jerami Grant, who has been one of the hottest names in the rumor mill of late.

The Bulls, however, just have one reservation about any proposed deal.

Via Jake Fischer:

The Bulls have continued exploring avenues to land Grant without sacrificing prized swingman Patrick Williams, sources said.

Sophomore swingman Patrick Williams was seen as the primary ball-stopper and potential defensive anchor for a Bulls team littered with offensive talent before he suffered a season-ending wrist injury.

The defensive potential for Williams remains through the roof and the Bulls aren’t willing to give that up for a temporary run with Jerami Grant, a more proven commodity but without the same upside.

A Bulls trade for Grant, with or without Patrick Williams, would require some serious finagling with the roster as the Pistons wing makes around $20 million in annual salary.

With the safe assumption that the Bulls have zero intention of trading away Alex Caruso or Lonzo Ball, that leaves very few options to cobble together a package that matches that salary enough for a trade.

Adding Jerami Grant would certainly add some additional firepower in the Bulls’ rotation. But unless something changes, it’s not going to be a seamless transaction.
