Report: Chicago Bulls trade for former Rookie of the Year Michael Carter Williams

Published Add your comment

The Chicago Bulls have made some serious moves since they failed to make the playoffs at the end of last season, and the franchise has an entirely different feel.

Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah - both to the Knicks - and Pau Gasol have all departed the Windy City and were replaced by hometown hero Dwyane Wade, as well as veteran guard Rajon Rondo.

However, it appears as though the Bulls are not quite done as, according to ESPN's Zach Lowe and Marc Stein, they have put together a deal for Michael Carter-Williams from the Milwaukee Bucks.

In exchange for the 25-year-old guard, who went 11th overall in the 2013 draft, Chicago have had to part with swingman Tony Snell, who went 20th in the very same draft.

It doesn't make a whole lot of sense for Chicago. Carter-Williams was the 2014 Rookie of the Year, but his career has failed to kick on since then. He may well find his feet again, but he isn't likely to do that playing second-fiddle to Rondo.

For the Bucks, Giannis Antetokounmpo is expected to spend more minutes at the one spot this season and Matthew Dellavedove also arrived from Cleveland in the summer. It comes as no surprise they were looking to move him.
