The San Antonio Spurs are finalizing a deal to send DeMar DeRozan to the Chicago Bulls for Thaddeus Young, a future first-round pick and two second-round picks, per Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Charania also reports the Bulls are finalizing a three-year, $85M fully guaranteed contract with the four-time All-Star.

DeRozan spent the last three seasons in San Antonio after the Spurs sent Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green to the Toronto Raptors for him, Jakob Poeltl, and a first-round pick that turned into Keldon Johnson.

The 12-year veteran led the Silver in Black in scoring last season, averaging 21.6 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 6.9 assists per game while shooting a remarkable 49.5% from the field.

There are no updates for the specific year of the incoming draft picks, though Thaddeus Young should provide San Antonio with some much-needed frontcourt depth behind

Young averaged 12.1 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 4.2 assists per game for Chicago and was among their most versatile two-way players off the bench in 2020-21.


The Bulls have also included Al-Farouq Aminu as part of the DeMar DeRozan sign-and-trade, per ESPN Senior Insider Adrian Wojnarowski.

Aminu’s expiring deal worth $14.2M allows Chicago to offer DeRozan $28M per year on his new contract.
