The Chicago Bulls reportedly want Andrew Wiggins included in any deal for Jimmy Butler.
What It Means:
Minnesota has dangled the fifth overall pick in trades, and Chicago has expressed some interest, with the Timberwolves eyeing star Jimmy Butler as a return piece. Butler won't come cheap, however, as Chicago wants Wiggins. One of the takeaways here is that the Bulls seem to be open to dealing Butler.
Butler is one of the best players in the league, regarded as an elite two-way force. He averaged 20.9 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.8 assists per night while posting an 8.6 nERD, which ranked 15th. Wiggins -- who ranked 115th with a -3.6 nERD, has shown some flashes, but he's been terribly inefficient on offense, posting a 46.9 percent Effective Field Goal Percentage through two seasons. Still, Wiggins just turned 21 and has breathtaking athleticism.
Denver Broncos quarterbacks Mark Sanchez and Trevor Siemian are currently "neck and neck" for the team's starting job, Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said.
What It Means:
Paxton Lynch, Denver's first-round pick, is third on the depth chart, per Kubiak. If Siemian and Sanchez are truly close, and this isn't just coach speak, that's probably not a good sign for Sanchez. A seventh-round selection in 2015, Siemian has not attempted a pass in his career.
On 100 drop backs, Sanchez had an ugly -0.05 Passing Net Expected Points per drop back rate in 2015, ranking 41st out of the 46 qualified quarterbacks.
