The Chicago Bulls and Oklahoma City Thunder agreed to a trade on Thursday, with the Bulls sending Alex Caruso in exchange for Josh Giddey, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

With the trade, the Thunder receive a big defensive presence in Caruso, a guard who’s a two-time recipient of NBA All-Defensive Team honors and an NBA Champion with the 2020 Lakers.

Chicago receives Giddey, who was named NBA All-Rookie Second Team in 2022, with the hope that the young guard will be able to join the team as a playmaker.
