It remains to be seen if Nikola Vučević can find his shooting touch, but his sense of humor appears to be well intact.

In the wake of Minnesota agreeing to a trade with Utah for Rudy Gobert Friday, Vučević, who had been linked to the three-time Defensive Player of the Year, offered up this gem of a response:

Vučević averaged 17.6 points and 11.0 rebounds in his first full season with the Bulls. However, he shot just 31.4% from deep and allowed opponents to shoot 64.8% in the restricted area.

Much of the fanbase would rather watch paint dry than to see Vučević, who was dealt to the Bulls in March of 2021, play out the final year of his four-year, $100 million contract in town.

But with the front office agreeing to the terms of a deal with Andre Drummond Thursday, Vučević seems to be staying put for now.

Just like his sense of humor.
