Nikola Vucevic (Chicago Bulls) with a 2-pointer vs the Memphis Grizzlies, 10/15/2021
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Jamahl Mosley waited a long time for this chance. The new coach of the Orlando Magic understands that this season, his first as an NBA head coach, is part of a massive rebuild that started last spring when the team traded away its best players - Nikola Vucevic, Even Fournier and Aaron Gordon.

CHICAGO (AP) Playing on an Olympic championship team was an experience Chicago Bulls star Zach LaVine will never forget. After trading for two-time All-Star center Nikola Vucevic at the deadline last March, they added four-time All-Star DeMar DeRozan and point guard Lonzo Ball in the offseason. All those moves have the Bulls thinking better days are coming.
