Assuming Bulls intend to waive Julyan Stone, the trade for them becomes all about clearing Jerian Grant (and creating a $2.6M trade exception). They now have up to $29M cap room before Zach Lavine is officially matched (if Kilpatrick/Zipser waived, Nwaba QO retained), $19M after.— Albert Nahmad (@AlbertNahmad) July 8, 2018
