Sources: DeMar DeRozan agrees to 3-year, $85 million deal with Bulls via sign-and-trade

·1 min read

Free agent guard/forward DeMar DeRozan has agreed to a sign-and-trade deal that will send him to the Chicago Bulls on a three-year, $85 million deal, league sources told Yahoo Sports. 

The Bulls are sending veteran forward Thaddeus Young, forward Al-Farouq Aminu, a protected first-round pick and two second-round picks to the San Antonio Spurs as part of the deal.

DeRozan's deal came together because of a strong relationship with Bulls general manager Marc Eversley, who drafted DeRozan in Toronto.

Last season with the Spurs, DeRozan averaged 21.4 points, 4.2 rebounds and a career-high 6.9 assists. He spent three seasons in San Antonio after nine in Toronto that included four All-Star selections.

Bulls make moves around Zach LaVine

The Bulls have been active this offseason, agreeing to another sign-and-trade deal on Monday that will bring Lonzo Ball from New Orleans. In that deal, Chicago sent out Tomas Satoransky, Garrett Temple and a second-round draft pick to the Pelicans. 

Ball, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 draft, averaged 14.6 points, 5.7 assists and 4.8 rebounds last season.

Chicago also agreed to a four-year deal with guard Alex Caruso on Monday.

All-Star guard Zach LaVine is eligible for an extension this offseason, and the Bulls are making moves to build around him.
