The Chicago Bulls could move forward Lauri Markkanen before the trade deadline.

“However, some around the league believe a Lauri Markkanen trade is a real possibility, though that could happen in another trade and not necessarily in a bigger [LaMarcus] Aldridge deal with San Antonio,” wrote Chris Crouse of FortyEightMinutes.com.

Markkanen, 23, is one of the best players on the Bulls.

The fourth-year pro is putting up a career-high 19.4 points on top of 5.9 boards per game this season. He’s started in 15 games for the Bulls.

While the Bulls hold a 16-19 record this season, they are just a few games out of the playoff bracket. They’re the No. 11 seed in the Eastern Conference.

Packaging Markkanen in a potential trade could fetch the Bulls some real talent or veterans. The organization is reportedly getting the most trade interest for journeyman Thaddeus Young.

The trade deadline is on March 25.
