With the NBA trade deadline fast approaching, potential championship contenders are working hard on building the perfect lineup for the playoffs.
One such team is the Oklahoma City Thunder, currently holding the best record in the whole of the NBA through the performances of MVP candidate, Kevin Durant.
Durant is averaging 31.5 points per game and is shooting 41% from three-point range in the absence of star guard, Russell Westbrook.
However, it is unlikely that the Thunder would be competitive deep into the playoffs on just Durant's talent alone.
According to Yahoo Sports sources, the Thunder are considering a number of shooting options before the trade deadline on February 20th.
Chicago Bulls' Mike Dunleavy is a player that Oklahoma City could see as a perfect fit for their team.
Dunleavy has averaged over 10 points per game during his last four seasons in the league and has a career three-point shooting average over 35%. The Bulls could be willing to shop Dunleavy if they could get a decent draft pick or young piece which could help with their development going forward.
The Bulls are still missing Derrick Rose through injury and traded Luol Deng to the Cleveland Cavaliers in January. Chicago are currently fourth in the Eastern Conference standings.
