    Both teams could use these players. Both players may benefit from a change of teams.

    Bulls drafting White and looking to add a vet PG in FA can afford to move on from Dunn.

    Suns having various options at the SG/SF they are limited at PG Dunn can at least play solid D.

    I could get behind that...and I have been reluctant to trade Jackson.

    As a Bulls fan, I'd be up for this!

    Dunn sucks. Pass. Wasn’t even interested in him at point of draft when his potential was highest.

    Dunn is likely better than anyone else we could get at point guard at this point, and he at least has a chance of being a serviceable starter, which is more than I can say for any point guard currently on the roster. Is he ideal? Of course not. But I would take him as the starter over Joseph, Rubio, Tyler Johnson, Okobo, Melton, Jerome and Lecque any day.

    Works for me, but I worry about his durability.

    NO MORE MEDIOCRE/CRAPPY POINT GUARDS

    Would you rather start Tyler Johnson or a rookie Ty Jerome or sign the likes of Cory Joseph?

    Man this would be kind of rough for me. The Bulls take White after coming to the conclusion that Dunn isn't the answer at PG. We acquire Dunn after passing on White.

    Eh I’m not so certain. The numbers are mediocre at best and drop when you view any shooting. And it seems every team that has him looks to replace him. The entire offseason has been “Bulls need a PG!!!”

    If the choice is between taking a flyer on Dunn, who is better than anyone we have, or just dumping him for nothing or, worse, giving up an asset to dump him the way we did with Warren...

    It's also been "Wolves need a PF", but that didn't stop us from trading for Saric...only we gave up value for Saric, while Jackson apparently has no value to us at all and is going to be cut, anyway...

    If you want to argue who’s less-worse between Dunn/Johnson knock yourself out but I got more entertaining things to do like counting the ceiling fan revolutions per minute.

    Oh. Good. I thought this was an actual trade. I would rather just cut JJ.
