During NBA TV’s Free Agency Special, Senior NBA Insider Chris Hanes of Yahoo Sports reported that Lonzo Ball intends on signing a contract with the Chicago Bulls. Ahead of the 2021 NBA Trade Deadline, the Bulls reportedly pursued a trade for Ball. The team’s interest has persisted throughout the offseason, and the latest report from Hanes gives further credence to a potential union.

Ball’s current team, the New Orleans Pelicans, seems to be in hot pursuit of six-time NBA All-Star Kyle Lowry for their point guard needs. Reports also surfaced during the NBA Playoffs indicating the Pelicans would not match a substantial contract offer for Ball.

This seems like a match made in heaven for the Bulls. According to Bleacher Report’s Jake Fischer, the Bulls and Ball have “mutual interest” in working out a four-year deal worth north of $80 million.

Lonzo Ball brings length, vision, defense, and high-IQ play to the point guard position. He has improved in every facet of the game since being drafted second by the Los Angeles Lakers in 2017. This could be a fruitful deal for both sides, as Ball would receive the dollar figure he desires and the Bulls would land a major complementary piece for two of their best players. Zach LaVine and Nikola Vucevic would greatly benefit from a true point guard who can get them into their sets. It’s no secret the Bulls have been missing a facilitating presence at the point, and Ball seems to be one who will fill that void.
