There’s a month to go until the NBA trading deadline. Do you know where your favorite Montenegrin is? That’s my question. Now, on to yours.
Even if Nikola Mirotic gets traded, is there still a chance Robin Lopez gets dealt as well as Justin Holiday? — Donte, Gary
If your name isn’t Lauri Markkanen, Kris Dunn or Zach LaVine, everything is on the table. I mean, I’d certainly expect young guys such as David Nwaba, Denzel Valentine and Bobby Portis to stick around. But the core is the core and those three are it. My best guess? Only Mirotic is dealt.
If the Big Three continue to progress and if the Bulls get a top-five prospect in the draft, would it be too early to predict that this team can be a solid top-five or top-six seed next season? I mean, it is the East, and the young guys are only going to get better. — Emir, San Jose, Calif.
