It appears that Chicago is considering trading for Tomas Tatar.
The 26-year-old is having the worst season of his career thus far, posting just 22 points in 46 games this season. Tatar carries a mere $2.75M cap hit and is, as is often the case when Chicago picks someone up, an unrestricted free agent at season's end. Take this rumor with a grain of salt, but it would be an interesting deal for both sides. Jan 21 - 5:19 PM
