I guess they overthought it and considered only the best offer coming from the West? Who knows, the Bulls front office seems confused for 2 years now. Maybe they didn’t give much thought for rebuilding, or are not very good at it.
With that said, spacing problems will happen to the Wolves as well. What people are betting here is that the Wolves will age well enough and become better in things they sucked last year. This is not guaranteed a playoffs spot in the West, sice Butler’s record as the franchise player in a horrible East the past 2 years is mediocre.
But it was absolutelly the right move for the Wolves. The Bulls might have to overhaul their front office and coach if this doesn’t work out.
