This should really come as no surprise. After the Chicago Bulls selected Coby White with the 7th overall pick in the 2019, people were questioning Kris Dunn’s role with the team. Would he be better suited off the bench? Would getting him time to shine with the ball in his hands benefit his game more? Kris struggled in offensive sets playing with Zach LaVine because he isn’t the greatest at off the ball offense.
The Chicago Bulls are searching for a trade that would move point guard Kris Dunn, league sources say.

With the acquisition of Tomas Satoransky early Monday morning, the writing was on the wall for the Kris Dunn experiment. Though, if the Bulls do trade done and get nothing back in return besides a 2nd round pick, that only frees up about $5.4 million.
Giving up on Dunn this early does make sense but personally, I would like have liked to see what he can do off the bench. Kris is an above average defender and could really give the second unit some needed scoring help. This just comes down to the fact that there is no room in the rotation for him after the Bulls recent pickups and it’s time to move on.
