Point guard Lonzo Ball is set to be traded to the Chicago Bulls for point guard Tomas Satoransky, forward Garrett Temple and a future second-round pick, according to multiple reports.

Ball, a restricted free agent, plans to sign a four-year, $85 million contract in a sign-and-trade agreement, per numerous outlets.

The Pelicans were reportedly discussing another deal with the Charlotte Hornets that could bring forward Miles Bridges to New Orleans.

Ball averaged 14.6 points, 5.7 assists, 4.8 rebounds and 1.5 steals in 55 games (all starts) and shot 37.8 percent from 3-point range last season. In his career, the 23-year-old has posted 11.7 points, 6.4 rebounds and 5.8 assists in 217 games (204 starts) over his four seasons.

ESPN’s Brian Windhorst reported the Bulls had discussions about another sign-and-trade deal to acquire DeMar DeRozan from the San Antonio Spurs for Lauri Markkanen.

Ball was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft with the Los Angeles Lakers, who traded him to the Pelicans in the Anthony Davis deal in 2019.
