NBA Rumors: Bulls Interested in Dennis Schroder


The Chicago Bulls have been hammered by injuries over the past month, not the least of which find guards Lonzo Ball and Alex Caruso out for at least the next 6 weeks or so. Help in the backcourt is essential if they are to maintain their spot amongst the elite in the East. 

According to a report today, Dennis Schroder is "a name to watch" for the Bulls. The Boston Celtics are known to be making Schroder available for the right return, as he will become a free agent after the season, and there is some doubt about whether they can afford to bring him back. 

Michael Scotto of HoopsHype reports that the Bulls could "buy low" on Schroder, and perhaps land him for a 2nd round pick and "a player like Tony Brown Jr."

The 28-year-old Schroeder enjoyed his greatest NBA success under Bulls coach Billy Donovan, when they were both in Oklahoma City, so the marriage makes sense.

Schroder is averaging 14.6 points and 4.4 assists for the Celtics, who snagged him for a bargain one year deal last summer at $5.9M, when his grandiose free agency plans fell flat

Ball is out after arthroscopic knee surgery, while Caruso will also not return before mid-March after the flagrant take-down he suffered at the hands of Grayson Allen.
