The Chicago Bulls wasted no time in the 2021 NBA Free Agency period, landing their top target just minutes after negotiations were allowed to begin at 5:00 p.m. CST.

Per Shams Charania, the Bulls have agreed to a four-year deal worth $80M with point guard Lonzo Ball on Monday afternoon in a deal that gives the team a legit point guard option to run their offense:

Chicago is also sending Tomas Satoransky, Garrett Temple and a second-round pick to New Orleans in the deal.

The Bulls and Ball have been connected for a few weeks now and reports surfaced over the weekend that Ball is expected to sign with the team barring any hiccups. Well, there were no hiccups and the 23-year-old now has an offer sheet with the team.

The point guard averaged 14.6 points 5.7 assists, 4.8 rebounds and 2.1 steals in 55 games with New Orleans this season.
