Welcome to The Chicago Homer’s Mailbag. It runs once a week unless it doesn’t, and in it I answer questions from readers via Twitter or email. The questions can be about any damn thing you please, and there likely isn’t a question I won’t answer. There may be questions I can’t answer, but I’ll try.

If you’d like to submit a question for the next edition of the mailbag it’s pretty simple. Either ask the question on Twitter using the #AskTCH hashtag — as long as you use the hashtag I will see it — or send an email to TCHMailbag@gmail.com.

Minnesota Continues To Negotiate Trade For Kevin Love Through The Media

loverumors

On Tuesday rumors surfaced that the Bulls were still very much involved in the Kevin Love Trade Sweepstakes. Though most of the focus on Love the last few weeks has been about the Timberwolves and Cavs discussing a deal that would involve Andrew Wiggins, the top pick in last month’s draft, it wasn’t that surprising to find out that the Bulls would still have interest in love.

After all, getting Love from the Wolves would not only improve the Bulls roster, but it’d keep the Cavs — a division rival that just got LeBron James back — from getting him as well. It’s just there was one small problem with the Tuesday’s rumor.

By most accounts, it was Minnesota leaking the Bulls supposed interest.

Shortly after I published the Mailbag on Saturday I received another question from a reader, and rather than wait until next week’s AskTCH, I decided to just answer it in its own post today. The question was from reader Casey Boguslaw, and it was about the Bulls decision to trade both their first round draft picks this year, and a second-rounder next year for Doug McDermott and Anthony Randolph.

What Does The Arron Afflalo Trade Rumor Mean?

Are the Bulls putting a backup plan in place, or do they have something larger planned?

That’s the question I had to ask myself when I saw the latest report from Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski about the Bulls pursuing a trade for Orlando’s Arron Afflalo. For months we’ve heard all about the Bulls and their interest in guys like Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Love, but as any Bulls fan knows when it comes to bringing a top player to Chicago, backup plans are a must. So is that what Afflalo is? Here’s what Wojnarowski wrote.

As of late it feels like the only time you hear the Bulls two first round draft picks being mentioned is as possible trade bait for Kevin Love, but according to one report, the Bulls are still looking to trade those picks, but not for Kevin Love.

It seems the Bulls want to move up in the draft to get a shooter.

So maybe this summer won’t be Carmelo Anthony or Bust.

According to a report from ESPN.com, Kevin Love has told the Minnesota Timberwolves that isn’t interested in signing a contract extension with the team, and that he plans on becoming an unrestricted free agent after next season. All of which could be very good news for the Bulls, but according to the report, there’s even better news.
