NBA Rumors: Bulls looking to make changes?

The T’Wolves aren’t going to pay over $7 million for a bench player, especially with the franchise looking to go younger and making a deal now would only solidify the franchises future of rebuilding with young players through the NBA Draft.

Martin averaged 20 points last season in Minnesota and 18 points per contest over his career. Several teams from around the league could use that type of scoring, including squads looking to make a push deep into the playoffs.

The latest rumors have suggested Chicago could have some interest in the former first round draft pick. The Bulls have struggled with scoring and finding a player that could help create more space on the offensive end, could open things up for the big men in the paint and take some pressure off point guard Derrick Rose.

Martin is owed $14.5 million for the next two years, not a huge number for teams still searching for help and have a bit of room under the salary cap. The Bulls window for winning an NBA title is closing and sending a draft pick of two for a proven player could be just what this franchise needs to compete with Cleveland in the Eastern Conference.

Brandon Jennings of Detroit is another player that could get moved before the trade deadline and depending on how the season goes with Rose, the type of player that could take over the main scoring role with the team and young enough to become a long-term solution for the franchise.

This time of year brings about rumors, especially with roster changes taking place before the regular season begins and for the shroud general managers around the league, finding help at bargain prices are available.
