Chicago Bulls "unlikely" to make any trades

Fans of the Chicago Bulls shouldn’t get their hopes up concerning any potentially imminent trades before the February 20 deadline, according to ESPN.

The Bulls executive vice president, John Paxson, told how it was “unlikely” his franchise would be making any moves before the trade deadline, despite reports suggesting that they could make a blockbuster deal for the New York Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony.

Paxson played down such talk, and insisted that the chance of the Bulls adding to their squad before the deadline remain low.

“We've got the trade deadline a week from now," Paxson said on Wednesday.

"You have to put yourself in the other team's position -- people don't just give up great players. So we obviously talk and keep our eyes and ears open, but to anticipate something's going to happen, I don't think that's likely, to be honest with you."

This would imply that the Bulls are preparing to make moves in the summer instead. According to ESPN capologist Larry Coon the franchise could have as much as $11million in car space, which would mean the idea of bolstering their ranks would definitely be viable.

The Bulls are currently enjoying a run of good form which has seen them take the points in their last three outings. The playoffs are looking a very realistic possibility at this stage, and one would expect them to attract big names in the summer if they can prove that they rank amongst the best in the NBA.
