Bulls targeting Mike Dunleavy Jr. with mini mid-level exception, per report

USA TODAY Sports

The Bucks forward is one option for the Bulls.

The Chicago Bulls are targeting Bucks small forward Mike Dunleavy Jr. with the mini mid-level exception, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. Dunleavy will turn 33 years old before the new seasons starts, and just turned in a solid campaign in Milwaukee. Dunleavy averaged 10.5 points and 3.9 rebounds per game in 75 appearances, shooting 44.2 percent from the field and 42.8 percent on four three-point attempts per game.

Dunleavy is the first name we've seen connected with the Bulls in conjecture to the mini mid-level, which is realistically the only way they can add a decent piece to the team. Of course, they should have also used the trade exception they acquired for Kyle Korver last year, but we always knew that was a long shot. Seeing as there has been multiple reports of the Bulls opting against using the MMLE completely this offseason to avoid a larger luxury tax bill, I view the Dunleavy bit as good news. That would be a quality signing, in my opinion.

Woj also notes that Houston is another option for Dunleavy, should they sign Dwight Howard.
