Here’s what Chad Ford had to say in a draft chat:
If the Bulls can somehow get LaMarcus Aldridge without losing Joakim Noah (maybe they trade Deng, or Taj Gibson, or even Jimmy Butler) the Bulls would have one of the best (if not the best) front-court in the NBA.
This LaMarcus Aldridge deal is further complicated by uncertainty surrounding Portland’s interest in DeAndre Jordan.
Clips, Blazers talked on DeAndre Jordan prior to Doc Rivers' hiring, sources say, but Portland interest and Jordan market value unclear now.
