Report: Bulls Offer First-Round Pick For Courtney Lee
On Tuesday, the Chicago Bulls traded former first-round pick James Johnson to the Toronto Raptors for the Miami Heat’s 2011 first-round pick. Well according to a report that pick could be flipped for Courtney Lee.
Adrian Wojnarowski, of Yahoo Sports, is reporting that the Bulls have offered the to the Houston Rockets for Lee, a shooting guard.
A sticking point in the trade, according to Wojnarowski, is that the Rockets want center Omer Asik instead of the draft pick.
Lee is averaging 7.4 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1 assist per game for the Rockets, while shooting 42.5 percent from three-point range.
If a deal is to be reached between the two teams it will have to come before Thursday’s NBA trade deadline.
