Topics discussed include: Dunn and Markkanen exceeding expectations changing the perception of the trade, lasting concerns that may still exist in the deal, when will full impact of the trade be realised, if Bulls fans should revisit their angst against the front office, and much more.
I discuss why you should love the Bulls front office along with what to expect from a Nikola Mirotic trade and take a look back at why the Jimmy Butler trade is the rare trade that is working for everyone.
