With the NBA trade deadline just a few hours away, the Chicago Bulls are said to be “aggressively” shopping All-Star forward Pau Gasol.
The 35-year-old is expected to decline his player option this offseason and become a free agent, so it makes sense for the Bulls to be shopping him as they would want to get something in return. Via Yahoo Sports:
The Chicago Bulls are aggressively shopping All-Star forward Pau Gasol, league sources told The Vertical.
Gasol, 35, can opt out of his contract this summer and become an unrestricted free agent, and Bulls general manager Gar Forman seems determined to move him before Thursday’s trade deadline with the hope of bringing back value.
Gasol is expected to decline the player option on the $7.4 million owed him in 2016-17.
