    Default Kinda crazy trade with Bulls... What y'all thinkin'?

    http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=bgushat

    Bargs, Ed and Kleiza for Boozer and Hamilton. I just think that this trade would make us a lock for the playoffs this year. Espn says that it would be minus 9 wins for the Bulls... I don't agree with this. Also, they are trying to trade those 2 since sometime now.

    We could then sign a guy like Kenyon Martin, Kyrylo Fesenko or Mehmet Okur to complete our roster.

    Valanciunas/Gray/Martin
    Boozer/Johnson/Acy
    Fields/Anderson/McGuire
    DeRozan/Hamilton/Ross
    Lowry/Calderon/Lucas

    We need more production from the wing players and Rip will give you this. As for Boozer, he can score and rebound like no others; exactly what we want from a starting PF.

    I wonder if we would be able to lowball for boozer, he has a bad contract and they did lock up that gibson guy.

    Sorry I don't understand, what means lowball? And I also forgot Magloire for the 3rd string center.

    I think Davis and Hamilton should be removed from the trade and of course stay with their respective teams. As much as Boozer has lost peoples favour, I agree with you that he would instantly make us contenders. Kleiza's absence won't be felt much 'cause Anderson is proving to be quite capable. Since Boozer's contract is proving to be a tough one to move, we might even be able to squeeze a 2 nd rounder from Chicago. Overall, I like the idea.

    Thanks for your answer, but why would not you take Hamilton back? I mean it's clear that we need some more production from the wing players and he would be a perfect backup for DeMar, also giving him and Ross a great guy to look up to.

    I think it would give us the perfect Veteran/Young team mix. Also, I wouldn't trade Bargs and Kleiza for only Boozer, as I'm not even sure it helps the Bulls, since they want to trade Hamilton.

    The wing position is a little bit of a concern but I'm quite confident it won't last long. Ross's production should pick up and make up for what seems like a concern now. Even if it doesn't, to get wing help is probably one of the easiest things. I like Hamilton but not if it means giving up Davis.

    From Chicago's point of view, replacing Boozer with Bargs. should be an easy decision to make. As good as Boozer has been and IMO still is, his present value is not good. Besides if Klieza decides not to pick up his player option, there is a financial benefit as well.

    offer less for boozer, or even better, offer up a lot more and get boozer and deng. I would be happy with that.

    Right now I don't see why we should keep Ed Davis. Amir is doing a
