With the pro basketball season just around the corner, NBA trade rumors continue to pop up. One of the more interesting recent speculations involves a swap of two NBA All-Stars from their respective squads. The Chicago Bulls and Indiana Pacers would be involved in a deal with multiple players being exchanged. At the core of the trade would be two of Team USA’s stars from this past summer in Rio de Janeiro, Jimmy Butler and Paul George. Would such a trade have any merit with the way these two teams are currently headed, though?

According to Sportsrageous, this Bulls and Pacers deal would involve Chicago sending Butler along with Doug McDermott, Denzel Valentine, and a future draft pick to Indiana. The Pacers would send their All-Star and top scorer, George, over to a Chicago squad that just picked up Rajon Rondo and Dwyane Wade in the offseason. It would continue Chicago’s “Big Three” status and keep them in contention with other top squads in the Eastern Conference. They could have a starting lineup of Rondo, Wade, George, Taj Gibson, and Robin Lopez on the court. The Pacers would have Jeff Teague, Butler, Monta Ellis, Myles Turner, and Thaddeus Young.
