bulls - heat - hornets
bulls get deng
heat get stephenson and marv will
hornets get gibson

Heat say no.
They're not going to give up one more year of Deng at a reasonable salary to take on two really bad contracts in Lance and Marvin.
26 May 2015 12:38:29

LAC get Jimmy Butler and Joakim Noah
- add intensity
CHI sign Wilson Chandler
LAC sign Paul Pierce
26 May 2015 13:44:53
No from the Bulls, and with what money do you plan on signing each of these players with? Both teams are well over the cap, and neither player is playing for the MLE next year.
26 May 2015 14:49:56
Haha Pierce was signed to WASH via the MLE. He is currently playing for the MLE.
26 May 2015 17:20:07
Although Pierce is playing for the MLE he does have the option to opt out and sign elsewhere.
26 May 2015 17:43:14
Chandler isn't a free agent.

24 May 2015 13:43:03
You can't sign and trade before draft
25 May 2015 10:28:45
It's not a sign and trade
23 May 2015 00:14:49
Knicks get P.George Stevenson 9th
Pacers get MKG Marv-Will-exp
Hornets get Melo Rudez - Jordan gets Melo to buy in

Kings get Napier Gibson Okafor-4th S.Johnson-9th
bulls get Stevenson
Knicks get Cousins
Belinelli A.Anderson 4yr 16 mil Gasol 4yr 80mil
23 May 2015 09:43:11
What a terrible Pacers trade
23 May 2015 13:27:38
That's quite a lethal Knicks backcourt.
26 May 2015 05:13:22
knicks fans are crazy. Almost as unrealistic as Laker fans
22 May 2015 17:11:08
ATL get: 3rd Overall Pick
Draft: Okafor (3rd)
Let Milsap walk.
PHI get: Jeff Teague & 15th Overall Pick
Draft: Dekker (15th)
Sign: Jimmy Butler, make an offer Bulls can't match.
22 May 2015 17:26:11
I don't see ATL signing Rondo. Everyone on that team can shoot, he can't.
22 may 2015 17:37:57
except okafor wont be there at 3 so you do the same exact trade with la for the #2 and i like it
22 May 2015 19:12:09
Interesting. I wonder if la would that deal too. Sixers might say yes but only with the 15th pick included. If not I think they'd rather have Russell on the cheap contract to start.
22 May 2015 19:33:51
Just because your Knicks might want to trade their pick doesn't mean the Lakers want to!
22 May 2015 19:36:21
Its an interesting idea, since the Sixers at 15 have the fire power to move back up.
I think the Sixers pass though. They're trying to get all the stud young talent to blend and peak/mature at the same time.
23 May 2015 06:41:27
Maximum contract for Jimmy Butler will be 4-year, 67M. Bulls will match that offer.
21 May 2015 23:21:18
Clippers trade Jamal Crawford
Bulls trade Taj Gibson
Clippers Sign Wes Johnson, Gerald Green.
Resign Deandre 5yr/100mill, resign rivers.
This allows barnes to go to the bench like rivers prefers for him. Clippers get a backup big who can play the 4 or the 5 and allow hawes to spread the floor. Johnson becomes that 3 and d guy with athleticism and green comes in off the bench firing.
21 May 2015 21:38:08
SG shooter with defense potential
PG/SG combo guard 6-4 or 6-5
SF back up 3 and D
PF/C all around game with potential
Raptors - T.Splitter, K.Anderson, future second pick
Grizzlies-diaw, future first pick 2016
draft Rj Hunter 20th pick deep shooter with defense potential
draft delon Wright 22nd pick combo guard nba ready
draft Christian Wood 25th pick all around player lots of potential
draft justin Anderson strong sf 3 and D guy
draft marc garcia or pat connaughton with the 55 pick
garcia would be a stash
connaughton could contribute now
max out leonard
maybe bonner for the lowwww
parker, udrih, wright
hunter, ginobili,(wright), connaughton
leonard, justin Anderson, connaughton
duncan, baynes, bonner
spurs would need a guy like scola behind Aldridge
and a 7foot center,
21 May 2015 02:34:07
Twolf Bucks Bulls
Twolf send Pekovic to bucks and martin to bulls
Get Mayo and Mirotic and the 1#rd from bucks

Nurkic - Hickson - Lauvergne
21 May 2015 04:37:18
Trade is pretty good actually.
21 May 2015 23:08:19
as a clippers fan, I would love this. but its highly unlikely.
20 May 2015 14:09:50
To NYK - Joakim Noah, Taj Gibson
To CHI - Carmelo Anthony
It feels like if there is ever a time that the Bulls would consider making a move for Melo, it's now. There offense struggled in the playoffs, being one of the bottom 4 efficient teams through two rounds. Like him or hate him, Melo can score the Basketball. They have scorers, but not necessarily a go to one with Rose's health being what it is. Gasol moves to the five, Mirotic starts at the four and Melo at the three.
Knicks are going to need frontcourt help after losing out on one of the top 2 picks last night. Though Noah clearly wasn't right this year, and may be in decline with injuries; next year is the final year of his contract. If he's done, the Knicks let him walk and it gives them even more FA money to spend. If he's good, Knicks could look at resigning him.
Gibson may or may not be a starting PF in the league, and with no one ahead of him, this would be the opportunity to find out.
20 May 2015 15:01:54
I don't like Melo that much but even I don't think this is enough for him, the Knicks are much better off holding on to Melo and trying to use him to lure free agents to New York.
20 May 2015 12:17:09
CHI get Kevin Durant and Nik Stauskas
- sign Robin Lopez
OKC get Jimmy Butler and Demarcus Cousins
SAC get Joakim Noah, Serge Ibaka Jeremy Lamb and Bulls 1st round pick
20 May 2015 15:05:24
No reason for Sacramento to do this.
18 May 2015 18:02:53
CHI get: LAL 2015 1st DP & MIN 2015 1st DP
LAL get: Derrick Rose & Nikola Pekovic
Sign: Kevin Love
MIN get: Jordan Clarkson, Nikola Mirotic & CHI 1st DP 2015
CHI get: Jabari Parker & Channing Frye
ORL get: Joakim Noah, Doug McDermott, & Coach Tom Thibodeou
MIL get: Orl 1st DP 2015 & Taj Gibson
Draft: Justice Winslow
CHI get: CHA 1st DP 2015 & Lance Stephenson
MEM get: Pau Gasol
CHA get: Zach Randolph & Aaron Brooks
(1st): Karl Anthony Towns
(4th): D'Angelo Russell
(7th): Trey Lyles
18 May 2015 19:09:03
Minnesota says no. Then no again. And no a third time.
18 May 2015 19:45:19
i think saying no only one time would work
18 May 2015 21:20:26
A trade this stupid requires more than one no.
19 May 2015 00:38:33
Ok Carl. First and only post. Simmer down. You could just press unrealistic.
19 May 2015 01:25:09
18 May 2015 04:42:13
End of melo era
Trade melo and calderon to bulls for gibson, mirotic and snell
Trade hardaway to hawks for sefolosha
Draft Deangelo Russell
DeAngelo Russell/Langston Galloway
Monta Ellis/Thabo Sefolosha
Tobias Harris/Tony Snell
Taj Gibson/Nikola Mirotic
Greg Monroe/Cole Aldrich
18 May 2015 17:23:02
Im not sure bulls would even want him anymore
17 May 2015 01:49:00
1. Through the brinks truck in Jimmy Butlers lap. Offer him the absolute MAX$$$. Let him know he will be the next Dr.J in philly, but always will be second to Jordan in Chicago. Thibs will be fired, and philly has a plan for success, just need one guy like Butler to say "I'm in".
2. Draft DeAngelo Russell. Friends with Noel, played HS ball with Embiid, and is exactly the type of guy philly needs at the point. A backcourt of Russell and Butler. Awesome.
3. Don't even think about trading Embiid or Noel.
2015/16 Sixers: 38-44 wins.
2016/17 Sixers: Serious contenders
Plus 4 #1's. ther own, lakers, heat, and okc. Here comes philly!!!
17 May 2015 13:50:14
Ya do realize butler is a restricted free agent, right? Aka the Bulls will just match the 'throw everything imaginable at him' offer. Because it's just a max contract, which they fully intend on matching. And in fact, they could have offered more. So what happens when he stays in Chicago because he isn't allowed to leave if the Bulls match?
17 May 2015 14:37:39
1. The max contract for Jimmy Butler is a little over $15 mil I believe. Unfortunately for the Sixers, that's probably easily matchable by the Bulls. It will put the Bulls over the Luxury Tax but they were over it already this year so they seem willing to accept the penalties.
2. Draft Russell. Yep, I'm on board. He's a left handed MCW that can shoot.
3. Keep Noel and Embiid together. Totally agree.
So that's the same roster except Wroten is in there instead of Butler. But I think Hinkie has something up his sleeve. We'll find out soon enough. (And I think Saric actually stays in Europe for 3 years. If he does that, he can skip past the rookie wage scale.)
17 May 2015 16:16:44
Makes perfect sense. Max out butler and Leonard. Make those teams match a super high contract and see what happens. If they match that's fine. One less team to worry about in free agency. If they don't match you get a highly talented player. I'm on board with that.
17 May 2015 16:53:10
I agree with phillyrich1. Hinkie has something in the works come draft day. TreGib I also agree wit. even if the bulls and spurs match the max deals, it hurts their chances in FA;s with so much $ tied up in others. Tuesday night is lottopalooza!! let's hope for a top 3 pick, and dream for #1 and #6.
17 May 2015 19:58:55
The Bulls wouldn't have had cap space anyways, and the Spurs can sign other FA's first before re-signing Leonard.
And why would any top FA want to go to that red hot mess this year?
Draft well, add the right mid-tier FA's, get a good rookie year from Embiid and win 33 games; and then you'll get interest from top FA's next year.
16 May 2015 13:59:11
Suns get Nikola Mirotic and Darren Collison
Bulls get 6th pick Kings, Carl Landry and PJ Tucker
Kings get Brandon Knight and Taj Gibson + 2nd rd pick from Suns
-sign Aaron Afflalo
- draft Willey Cauley-Stein and Jerian Grant
16 May 2015 14:12:36
Without the pick, bulls get equal talent for the players. Why do they get the pick?Switch Noah and gibson trade is fair.
16 May 2015 12:20:31
Bulls gets: Landry, Sac 1st rd pick (6th)
Kings gets: Mirotic, McDemott
Bulls free up some cap space to resign Butler and can pick WCS to fill in the frontcourt rotation.
Sacramento gets a big that can stretch the floor for Cousins and a young prospect McDermott. Also gets rid of Landrys contract.
16 May 2015 13:16:53
So you think the Kings would want to put Nic Stauskus and Doug McDermott on the court at the same tiem?
Kings say no to this. That #6 pick could get them WCS or Winslow or Hezonja.
16 May 2015 13:34:37
The trade is about mirotic, not McDermott. You have a nickel holding up a dollar. Not a bad trade overall.
16 May 2015 19:28:33
Mirotic or McDermott not much of difference to argue that either worth wcs or Johnson 6 pick. Winslow gone at 4 or 5.
15 May 2015 20:21:12
Chi get Demarcus Cousins
Sac get Joakim Noah, Nikola Mirotic, Bulls 1st round pick and future 1st round pick
Chi get Jodie Meeks
Det get Taj Gibson
Chi resign Butler
sign Marco Bellineli, Brandon Bass and Brandan Wright
18 May 2015 14:21:58
As a Pistons fan I do this in a heart beat. If I am the Bulls not so sure that I would give up a young talented Big man for a bench SG.
15 May 2015 15:23:49
Knicks get Howard Snell Gasol 23
Rockets get Melo Noah Early
Bulls get Ariza Okafor Capela
Harden gets a more reliable scoring mate than Howard. they become the best scoring tandem. This team is going to be fun to watch gun and run and outscore everyone.
The trade position ny to sign Marc Gasol and having the
best triangle type of offense possible with player who
are experience. With 2 premier interior defender to
protect the paint. Phil does not want rebuild. Trade
Hardaway for PJ Tucker Draft -Justin Anderson trade for Terrence Ross. C.Joseph MLE Sign Allen Anderson biannual.
Bulls create cap space to resign Butler 4yr 68mil sign Shumpert 4yr 20mil J.McGee 2yr 8 mil Vet min Smith Butler
16 May 2015 19:42:45
Bulls have much better 2 way players andmuch deeper bench than this. And add their post much better than anybody they had since MJ.
Knicks get true chance to under triangle offense Howard and 2 Gasol bro.
1 of these 2 teams would face the rockets in finals. Anybody who does like this trade is not fan of either of these teams. Haters will hate.
