NBA Trade Rumors: Chicago Bulls unwilling to trade Mike Dunleavy

The Chicago Bulls were looking like they might be active at the NBA trade deadline this year, but things have quieted down significantly in the Windy City. While Mike Dunleavy’s name came up numerous times over the last few months, the team isn’t looking to trade him which means the Houston Rockets are out of luck.

USA Today NBA writer Sam Amick reports that the Bulls, despite Dunleavy’s contract figures, are unwilling to deal him at the deadline and will hang onto the rest of the season.

It would appear that the Bulls are done dumping fuel overboard in an effort to get back under the luxury tax. The team is back under that threshold — if only barely so — and are now content with their roster as is. Obviously if Houston blows them away with a deal, they’ll reconsider, but it’s looking like Dunleavy will stay in Chicago.
