Lonzo Ball agrees to 4-year, $85 million deal with Bulls in sign-and-trade

ANALYSIS: Ball is a restricted free agent, so the Pelicans could still match the offer. It could also be worked out as a sign-and-trade agreement. The Bulls had been rumored to want Ball since the trade deadline, and could be close to a defensive upgrade at point guard.

In return, the Pelicans acquire two steady veterans in Satoransky and Temple who can boost the guard rotation.
