Chicago Bulls general manager Gar Forman said Thursday the organization didn’t make any serious efforts to trade forward Luol Deng or any of the team’s core players before the NBA draft.
Were we actively shopping our players? Absolutely not,” Forman said after the Bulls drafted Kentucky guard Marquis Teague with the 29th pick. “Are there conversations? All 30 teams have conversations about everybody on their roster. But we like the core of this team, and it’s our job to continue to try to put pieces around Derrick (Rose) and some of the other core guys and try to continue to trend up.”
Trade rumors swirled around Deng in recent weeks, and he recently acknowledged them and said he wouldn’t be surprised if the Bulls moved him.
