|Al-Farouq Aminu: Traded to San Antonio|
Aminu, along with Thaddeus Young, a future first-round pick and two second-round picks, has been traded to the Spurs in exchange for DeMar DeRozan, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
The Scoop: Aminu arrived in Chicago as part of the Nikola Vucevic trade and exercised his $10.2 million player option for the 2021-22 season which allowed the Bulls to use his salary to acquire DeRozan. The 30-year-old has only played in 41 games over the last two seasons and hasn't averaged above 5.0 points per game. It is likely that Aminu makes San Antonio's roster, but his role will be marginal at best.
