As the draft continues to get closer, trade buzz and hype only gets hotter. According to a report from NBA Draft God, the Grizzlies and Bulls are started the process of draft night trade talks.
BREAKING: The Memphis Grizzlies are in talks with the Chicago Bulls to trade forward Deyonta Davis & the #4 pick in next week’s draft for the #7 pick + a future 2nd round pick.

What are the Grizzlies thinking? I don’t understand this move for them at all. The only thing that I can think of is that they aren’t sold on any of the prospects at their pick so they move down to acquire either more picks or another player.
But this deal would be a disaster for them. They lose the 4th pick and Davis for the 7th and some random second rounder? As for the Bulls, this would be a home run to add big man depth and have a better shot at getting either Bamba, or Porter is he goes higher in the draft than previously expected.
