The Chicago Bulls have made two trades already in 2014 but it appears they’re completely spent with just hours to go before the deadline passes. While names like Kirk Hinrich, Mike Dunleavy and others have popped up in trade rumors, the Bulls are unlikely to make a move and will be standing pat.
Ken Berger notes this in a tweet sent out Thursday morning, stating that sources have informed him that Chicago is standing pat at the deadline and no moves are expected out of the Windy City today.
Bulls, who are $678K under tax, are comfortable standing pat, source says. Believe they can stay under even with bonuses and 10-days.

Chicago’s only goal was to get back under the luxury tax and they did so by trading Luol Deng, cutting Andrew Bynum and moving Marquis Teague. Now that the Bulls are back under the tax, any move they did would have to further put them under the tax as they’re not going to go anywhere near a deal that moves their standing with the tax.
