Ben Ripstein serves as the president of Midwest Motors Inc., where he is responsible for buying all cars and overseeing the sales department. When he is not working, Ben Ripstein enjoys following the Chicago Bulls, his favorite basketball team.
The Bulls currently have their eye on five-time NBA All-Star Blake Griffin. Power forward for the Los Angeles Clippers, Blake Griffin’s time in Los Angeles is coming to an end. The Oklahoma City Thunder, Orlando Magic, Boston Celtics, and Chicago Bulls have all expressed interest in the impressive player, as have other teams. One rumor reports the Bulls are trading both Nikola Mirotic and Taj Gibson to get their hands on Griffin. While the team hopes to acquire him before the trade deadline in early 2017, they are also willing to pursue him during free agency later in the year.
In the recent 2015-2016 season free agency, the Bulls managed to pick up Dwayne Wade and Rajon Rondo. Along with Jimmy Butler, the three superstars will be tasked with carrying the team forward in the coming years.
If the Chicago Bulls manage to snag Blake Griffin, the move will go a long way in cementing a prosperous future for the team.
