Omer Asik has been traded to the Bulls.
Asik spent his first two seasons in the NBA with the Bulls, but he didn't play much then and we don't expect that to change now. He's on the books for $11.8M next season and then the Bulls can use an early-termination option for his contract to make him a free agent for the 2019-20 season. He can be left on the wavier wire everywhere. Feb 1 - 1:25 PM

Tony Allen - G/F - Bulls

Tony Allen, Jameer Nelson and Omer Asik have been traded to the Bulls in exchange for Nikola Mirotic.

The Bulls are expected to waive Allen, as they are rebuilding and have no use for a 36-year-old veteran with very little left in the tank. It's not a lock that a contender will pick him up if he's waived and he still hasn't fully recovered from his fibula fracture.

Alexis Ajinca (right knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's season opener against the Grizzlies.

This is the first we're hearing of a knee injury for Ajinca, and it's unclear how long this knee issue will keep him on the sidelines. With both Omer Asik (illness) and Ajinca unavailable for the season opener, DeMarcus Cousins figures to earn heavy minutes at the five-spot, with Cheik Diallo earning most of the reserve minutes there.
