Magic dealing Nikola Vucevic to Bulls for Wendell Carter, Otto Porter
The Chicago Bulls are acquiring forward/center Nikola Vucevic from the Orlando Magic.
The Bulls will receive Vucevic and Al-Farouq Aminu from the Magic in exchange for Wendell Carter Jr., Otto Porter Jr., and first-round picks in 2021 and 2023 (both 1-4 protected). Vucevic is already one of only four players averaging 24 points and 10 rebounds this season, and teaming up with a talented playmaker like Zach LaVine should allow the big man to flourish even more on offense.
Vooch is averaging 47.2 FanDuel points in 34.1 minutes per game this season with 24.5 points, 11.8 boards, 3.8 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.6 blocks, and 2.7 triples per contest.
