    Default Proposal - Raps/Hornets/Bulls trade

    Toronto outgoing:
    Bosh
    Turkoglu
    Evans
    Banks

    Toronto incoming:
    Okafor
    Collison
    Deng
    Stojakovic

    Okafor/Bargnani/Alibi
    Bargnani/Davis/Johnson
    Deng/Stojakovic
    DeRozan/Weems/Bellinelli
    Collison/Calderon/Jack

    Toronto gets decent value back for Bosh, in getting three players who can start next season. Okafor is a great mentor for Alibi, Collison is the PG of the future, and all three bring added defensive presence. They take on an awful contract in Stojakovic, but it expires after the season.

    New Orleans outgoing:
    Okafor
    Collison
    Posey
    Stojakovic

    New Orleans incoming:
    Turkoglu
    Gibson
    Evans
    Banks

    I think this is a great trade for the Hornets. New Orleans gets rid of three contracts they don't want, and gain an excellent young forward, a couple expirings in return, and get a SF who can be their long-term replacement for Stojakovic. They'll still need to make another move to pick up a starting center, but the rest of their roster is set up pretty nicely, and they'll have lots of flexibility after this year.

    Chicago incoming:
    Bosh
    Posey

    Chicago outgoing:
    Gibson
    Deng

    They get Bosh without giving up any of their core. Essentially moving Deng for Posey ensures that they keep the good cap position that they've worked so hard to get to. No, Posey isn't a good value. But if they're making a hard pitch for James, whoever plays behind him (whether it's Posey or Deng) will get so little court time as to be a complete non-factor. Obviously they would rather just sign Bosh outright, so the only way this happens is if Bosh sticks to his guns about making a sign-and-trade work.
