With Luol Deng moved to the Cleveland Cavaliers, it would appear that general managers around the NBA are expecting the Bulls to continue dealing their players, including Dunleavy.

Several GMs are fully expecting Dunleavyto be moved for a pick as the Bulls transition into full rebuild-for-next-season mode.

In his report, Bucher also mentions that the Rockets could be a good fit for Dunleavy. He would certainly allow Houston to play small-ball and put Dwight Howard in lineups with four shooters around him, and offensive system he is comfortable with from his Orlando Magic days.

Houston GM Daryl Morey is also known for being very active at the trade deadline, so making a run at another wing that can stretch the floor seems like a good option. Dunleavy is on a very cap friendly contract and Chicago would probably not give him away cheap and ask for a first-round pick in return.
