Magic Trade Nikola Vucevic to Bulls for Wendell Carter Jr., Two First-Rounders
The NBA Trade Deadline is almost here and we have at least one big deal.
Here's the deal: The Bulls land Nikola Vucevic and Al Farouq Aminu for Otto Porter, Wendell Carter Jr., and two first-round picks. Huge addition for Chicago, who remains in pursuit of Lonzo Ball. The Magic are moving toward a rebuild now with Aaron Gordon deal on deck.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) March 25, 2021
This massive package comes after a report that the Magic would only accept a huge deal to ship off Vucevic. And it appears they got their big haul.
The Magic weren't done dealing, either.
Boston is in serious talks to acquire Orlando guard Evan Fournier for two second-round picks, sources tell ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) March 25, 2021
The Magic now appear to be in full teardown mode while the Chicago Bulls, currently 10th in the Eastern Conference, are making a push to make the playoffs.
