Bulls have an interest in Wednesday's NBA trades

Asik is scheduled to earn about $15 million in the final year of a 3 year contract he signed in the summer of 2012, but it will only count against the cap for $8.4 million because of the structure of the "early bird" free agent contract he signed....
