RUMOR: Pelicans, Bulls, Hornets talking 3-team trade involving Lonzo Ball
2021 NBA free agency is here, or just about, and rumors have been swirling non-stop. One of the biggest names is Lonzo Ball, who seems to be headed out from the New Orleans Pelicans with several NBA teams eyeing his services.
I'm told the Hornets, Pelicans and Bulls have discussed a three-team deal that sends Devonte Graham to the New Orleans, Lonzo Ball to the Chicago and Lauri Markkanen to Charlotte.

What a move this would be for all three teams. Ball to the Bulls has been something in the making for quite some time. The Bulls also seemed ready to let Lauri Markkanen go and he should have a lot of suitors amid NBA teams.
Then there’s Devonte’ Graham, who would head to the Pelicans and play with Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram–if this is, in fact, the deal.
A lot of rumors have come out, but the Lonzo Ball to Chicago talks have picked up steam with NBA free agency drawing closer and closer, and now it could very likely be a reality.
The Bulls would have a trio of Ball, Zach LaVine, and Nikola Vucevic as they try and make some noise in the Eastern Conference.
Many deals could go down when the NBA free agency begins, so stay tuned for more movement across the league.
