NBA Trade Rumor: Bulls To Trade Off Joakim Noah?

He has broken the franchise record for the number of offensive rebounds recently. But the Chicago Bulls are looking to trade veteran big man Joakim Noah.

He has broken the franchise record for the number of offensive rebounds recently. But the Chicago Bulls are looking to trade veteran big man Joakim Noah.

Why? Firstly, his contract is favorable to be traded next summer. He has a $13.7 million deal coming to an end. Spaniard Pau Gasol is looking to opt out of his contract at the end of the season, too. The Bulls are looking forward to inculcate fresh blood in their roster by trading off the senior duo.

With Noah almost above the hills, rookies like Bobby Portis demand more playing minutes to blossom.

The Dallas Mavericks might be interested in the 30-plus center as a pair of Dirk Nowitzki. After DeAndre Jordan refused to sign for the Mavs, Dallas also missed out on Zaza Pachulia and Javale McGee. They feel the requirement of a seasoned campaigner like Joakim Noah, who is also linked with the Sacramento Kings as they have DeMarcus Cousins on the cards. Though the Kings management has clearly indicated that they have no intentions of parting ways with Cousins.

Noah started in place of the resting Gasol and notched up 21 points. But the Bulls lost the game. However, with an expiring contract, Noah remains top priority in the Bulls trading list for next summer.
