Bulls Get: Martell Webster, 2016 Unprotected 1st Round Pick

Wizards Get: Taj Gibson

Bulls Agree Because: They can trade an expendable big for two respectable trade chips, also cut cap

Wizards Agree Because: They flip a dead rotation member along with a 1st that should be worth the upgrade for a legitimate 6th man but more importantly 3rd big off the bench

Bulls - Lakers

Chicago has a logjam at the 4 while LA has a logjam of guards. Let's help both teams out.

Bulls: Nick Young and Tarik Black

With this trade, the Bulls gain two advantages. First, they pick up Nick Young, a solid shooter and scoring option backing up Dunleavy and also brings a new personality that the franchise can profit upon. Second, they open up time for rookie Bobby Portis who flashed potential at the summer league. The only down side is the risk of Doug McDermott falling out of the rotation because he also has shown potential at summer league. This can easily be avoided if Young is subbed in at SG as more of an offensive option in contrast to Kirk Hinrich. In both scenarios, Coach Hoiberg has a lot to work with.

Lakers: Taj Gibson

With rookie D'Angelo Russell, Jordan Clarkson, Kobe Bryant, along with the addition of Lou Williams, the Lakers already have enough guards to work with. In contrast, rookie Julius Randleand the inconsistent Roy Hibbert are not the best starters. Considering Brandon Bass and Robert Sacre are the alternative options, the Lakers are looking pretty weak down low. Coach Byron Scott discussed how there is a potential for Kobe to play the 4 and frankly, that is a huge stretch considering his physique isn't the same as it used to be.With this trade, they pick up a great backup PF which allows Kobe to play at the 3 and adds big man depth. The only cost is a player who would likely be pushed out of the rotation and a third string center.


29 Jul 2015 14:13:40
So the Bulls give up gibson who has positive value and get back young, who has negative value. This seems fair.

29 Jul 2015 16:38:13
what part of helping "both teams" out did you forget to include?

29 Jul 2015 18:16:30
Gibson for l Williams would be an even swap. But I doubt if the Lakers would do that.

29 Jul 2015 00:45:33

Suns get Gasol

Bulls get Morris, Goodwin, a lottery protected 1st rd pick, and a 2nd rd pick

29 Jul 2015 18:20:52
Suns probably can get p gasol since the bulls have many big men but the suns would have to give a better package

28 Jul 2015 17:04:08

Hornets get Gasol
-Sign Dorell Wright
-Trade Hawes to Wiz for Seraphin s&t (get much needed rim protection)
Its now or never for the Hornets as Batum and Jefferson will be free agents after this year

Bulls get Williams, Hairiston, a 2016 1st rd pick, and right to swap 2017 1st rd picks
-Bulls get players who fit their system better and add depth on the wing

28 Jul 2015 19:05:39
lmao bulls hang up when you ask for gasol

28 Jul 2015 19:45:28
Maybe Gibson instead of gasol would be better.

29 Jul 2015 18:31:55
M Williams for p gasol?

27 Jul 2015 20:03:26

Hornets get Gibson

Bulls get Williams, Hairiston, and a 2nd rd pick

25 Jul 2015 23:20:46
Bulls get Chandler Parsons

Dallas gets Joakim Noah

26 Jul 2015 13:22:24
Bulls say no.

26 Jul 2015 16:15:45
I am a bulls fan and I would say yes to this trade

25 Jul 2015 15:06:40

Bulls Get - Andre Igoudala, Devin Harris
Bulls Give - Taj Gibson, Tony Snell, Kirk Hinrich, 2018 Non Protected First Round Pick

Mavs Get - Andrew Bogut, Kirk Hinrich, 8 Million Trade Exception
Mavs Give - Devin Harris, Dwight Powell, 2018 Top 5 Protected First Round Pick

Warriors Get -Taj Gibson, Tony Snell, Dwight Powell, Mavs 2018 Top 5 Protected Pick

76ers Give - 8 Million Trade Exception

Note - The Mavs and 76ers Trade for the trade exception before the big trade.

25 Jul 2015 15:35:53
Take Out the Bulls 2018 Pick. Forgot about that.

25 Jul 2015 15:44:47
Warriors say no. If it ain't broke don't fix it

25 Jul 2015 15:55:32
This does nothing to improve the Warriors

25 Jul 2015 18:04:12
No more second round picks for the Sixers.

25 Jul 2015 18:44:52
The warriors have to sign Harrison Barnes next year which they will need cap space for, and they free up cap for more and get more flexible contracts of Taj Gibson and Tony Snell plus a first round pick

25 Jul 2015 19:39:58
So warriors trade their starting center and the NBA finals MVP for a decent power forward and a bunch of trash? Doesn't make much sense. And the comment above about how they need money to extend Barnes makes no sense. They have his bird rights, so they can go over the cap to keep him, but they probably won't need to because Wallaces contract expires plus the cap is going way up.

25 Jul 2015 20:44:50
Sixers will start to pass on second rounders now. We haut don't need anymore at this point.

26 Jul 2015 08:00:48
They have his bird rights and he's a RFA so they can go over the cap to sign him. Plus the cap is going up by another $20M next year.

25 Jul 2015 14:28:42
Bulls get - Courtney Lee and Vince Carter

Grizzles get- Taj Gibson and E'Twaun Moore


They add a wing defender and veteran leadership who can create. They're deep in the front court making Taj expendable

Sign Kevin Seraphin

Rose - Brooks
Lee - Carter - Snell
Butler - Dunleavy - Mcdougie
Gasol - Mirotic - Portis - Bairstow
Noah - Seraphin

Grizzles :

They booster up the front court with a versatile 6th man. Terrific defender and athletic, he's a solid fit. Then a cheap expiring role player in Moore.

Sign Nate Robinson

Coney - Robinson - Udrith - Smith
Allen - Moore - Adams
Barnes - Green
Randolph - Gibson - Stokes - Martin
Gasol - Wright

25 Jul 2015 21:28:16
Although Gibson is a player that fits Memphis's ground and pound like play, they don't have a need for him. They do have a need for Lee who is their best shooter and probably best two way wing on their team. And although Carter struggled last year, he is a much more proven player than moore and you need proven players in the playoffs.

25 Jul 2015 09:12:34

25 Jul 2015 18:17:54

Add a first to detroit and they would probably say yes.

25 Jul 2015 03:13:50
Bulls Get: Brandon Jennings

Pistons Get: Taj Gibson, Kirk Hinrich

24 Jul 2015 15:09:35
Who's marble?

24 Jul 2015 15:21:05
I don't think the Wolves would want Webster and his contract, he has been on the team before and wasn't all that great, otherwise the trade is pretty good for all involved

24 Jul 2015 18:05:29
did dunleavy just disappear off the Bulls roster or am I missing something?

24 Jul 2015 19:44:16

Jazz get- George Hill
Jazz trade- 1st round pick, Trey Burke, and Trevor Booker

-- Jazz get a reliable big PG who fits the style of play in Utah.

George Hill - Dante Exum - Bryce Cotton
Alec Burks - Rodney Hood - Elijah Milsap
Gordon Hayward - Joe Ingles - Jack Cooley
Derrick Favors - Trey Lyles - Grant Jerrett
Rudy Gobert - Tibor Theiss

Bulls get- Jazz 1st round pick, Pacers 1st round pick, Trevor Booker, Chase Budinger, CJ Miles, and Ian Mahinmi
Bulls trade- Etwaun Moore, Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson

-- Bulls move Pau to center allowing Mirotic who has shown the capability of starting. The east lacks dominate bigs and this lineup matches up well with teams like the Cavs and Heat. They get 2 1st round picks and expiring contracts for 2 players rumored to be gone by next season. They get great depth and save money next season.

Derrick Rose - Aaron Brooks - Kirk Hinrich
Jimmy Butler - CJ Miles - Tony Snell
Mike Dunleavy - Chase Budinger - Doug McDermott
Nikola Mirotic - Trevor Booker - Bobby Portis
Pau Gasol - Ian Mahinmi - Cam Bairstow

Pacers get- Joakim Noah, Taj Gibson, Etwaun Moore, and Trey Burke
Pacers trade- George Hill, Ian Mahinmi, Chase Budinger, CJ Miles, and a 1st round pick

-- Pacers add a front court which they're lacking. These players fit the more uptempo style they want to run. Before this trade they're looking at a 8-10 seed but now have the talent to jump 5-6 seed.

Trey Burke - Joe Young - Etwaun Moore
Monte Ellis - Rodney Stuckey
Paul George - Solomon Hill
Taj Gibson - Myles Turner - Rakeem Christmas
Joakim Noah - Jordan Hill - Lavoy Allen

24 Jul 2015 07:14:45
Bulls Get: Dion Waiters

OKC Get: Terrance Ross

Raptors Get: Taj Gibson

I know the salaries don't work exactly but I think it could be solved with a few minor pieces moving around

24 Jul 2015 07:32:31
Bulls don't want waiters

24 Jul 2015 01:20:48
Bulls' plan for perfect off-season 2016-17:

- while season 2015-16 trade Gibson & Snell for an expiring contract + a future 1st round pick
- Gasol opts out = to resign and in order to create cap space for MAX contract player
- cut Da Silva Felicio
- own FA: Noah, Gasol, Hinrich, Brooks & Moore


- sign K.Durant to max contract (maybe with option to opt out and to resign a higher max contract)
- Gasol convince Kobe to come over to Chicago for a last title run where his idol MJ played (I'm sure he would love to play with DRose, Durant, Butler and Noah)
- resign Noah, Gasol, Hinrich and Brooks

- best starting 5 ever (3 former MVPs, MIP and DPOY)
- very experienced and talented bench (Gasol, Mirotic, Dunleavy, McDermott, Portis, Hinrich, Brooks)!!
- when Kobe retires: Rose-Butler-Durant-Portis-Noah with Mirotic and McDermott leading the bench
- Gasol split minutes at C with Noah

24 Jul 2015 15:13:31
Kobe is a laker for life he won't go play anywhere else

24 Jul 2015 17:20:02
Rose Kobe durant and butler wouldn't work out well they all need the ball
