LO Trade Bait This Summer? (Sun-Sentinel p.16)

It depends on what position hurts us the most on defense. From what I gathered over the season, it's been the small forward spot.

The point guard penetration won't make a difference with two seven footers in the middle. That said, if a point passes out near the three point line, we're in deep trouble because no starting forward on the team can guard worth a crap.

Ariza is a nice option but I really don't think he's ready for the starting job. His jumper is suspect along with the ability to create his own shot. His ballhandling isn't very good either. I know he has a whole summer to get better but I can't help the fact that they're players available who can provide immediately.

Why would the Bulls do that?

Kirk would be excellent, dont get me wrong. But I dont see what direction the Bulls would go in if they did that deal.

are you serious? the Bulls have no inside presence. while LO is not a post player, he can rebound very well and is better than anything they have at PF. plus, his contract is coming off the books after this season, and with Derrick Rose they have no need to Hinrich's contract. i still think Hinrich is overrated and think we could do better than him. if you include Nocioni, then i'd do that only if Artest is here.

They have a young core, are probably drafting Rose as their PG of the future (which would make Hinrich and his remaining contract expendable), and would want a large expiring contract like Lamar because Chicago is a great city to attract potential free agents.

That's EXACTLY what the Bulls would want when they're looking to dump Hinrich.

I'll do the Hinrich deal only if we get back Nocioni and maybe Gooden.

Odom isnt exactly an inside presence. Plus, Gooden averaged 9 boards a game with the Bulls. Now Gooden isnt Odom but from a rebounding standpoint...they are equal when you factor in the minutes.

if we get ron artest without odom there are two guys i'd want to make a deal for

lamar to milwaukee for maurice williams and charlie villanueva

lamar to chicago for kirk hinrich+drew gooden

both trades along with ron artest keep us younger and make us virtually unstoppable

You make sense but out of all the pipes that are being thrown around. This is the least likely, IMO.

it has been said that if they draft rose hinrich is the most likely to be gone

besides they need to clear up space to make a run at dwayne wade the chicago native that you know they have their eyes on

if they trade us hinrich and drew gooden their line-up in 2010 could be

??????
lamar odom
andres nocioni
dwayne wade
derrick rose

hell they get the right center they could be a championship team

that right there is an exciting fastbreak team

So to the Chicago deals...

Hinrich and Nocioni? :man10: :man10: :man10:

We are not going to add 2 more 10 mio. salaries...not gonna happen. It would make no sense anymore...its a BUSINESS after all. Most companies try to increase their EBIT (Earnings before interests and taxes) or NI (net income) by reducing costs not by improving their services and products.

Hinrich...solid defender but extremely prone to very stupid touch fouls...a PG who regularly gets into foul troubles....he averages 3 fouls and leads all kind of guards in the NBA including shooting guards. He is a solid shooter, at least before last season. Last year he was just utter garbage.

pros
good shooter
good defender
good size
good hoop IQ
solid passer who doesn't dominate the ball too much

cons
bad contract
has regressed a lot last season
seems to fold under pressure

all in all Lamar is >>> Hinrich and there is no doubt about it. Chicago would have to throw in a solid prospect for me to accept that offer unless they add an expiring K and accept a terrible contract. Radbrick or Luke. Nocioni is also much worse than Odom.

Gooden is not even close to Lamar in rebounding. The Bulls lacked any inside presence so Gooden got rebounds, but Lamar is lightyears ahead of Drew when it comes to having a knack for rebounding. i acknowledged Lamar isn't much of an inside presence, but he's tall and long enough to be a perfect fit at PF in that system.

I'm honestly really confused by that. Think about all the ridiculous spending that NBA teams have done over the past 4 or 5 years that has resulted in guys staying in their deals because teams don't have the cap space to sign elite free agents to large deals.

Now that you have over $14 million in expiring dollars attached to an extremely talented player, that's going to be VERY attractive to teams looking to reduce payroll. Hinrich fits the bill of someone that a team is looking to dump and would be a nice fit for us.

Not sure where you're seeing this as being a long shot since it's the likeliest of scenarios that I've seen (as far as motivation for the other potential team involved).

As for his contract, it should be noted that he's only 27 and has a unique contract in that his salary actually decreases yearly.

Plus someone said that Hinrich's contract is front loaded so our payroll
would be decreasing as the years go, if true.

Edit: Ok I see its true then.

I think the three is a position more in need than point. Trevor's jumper is still to weak to put him in the starting 3 spot.

If they ship Odom off, it better be for a 3, and nothing else. I only want to see Artest, Miller, or Jefferson in Odom's spot.

They can keep Kirk, the Lakers don't need that ugly contract.

not gonna happen...thats rape IMO.

AND we don't need/want Gooden. No reason to have an 8 mio. salary bench player who is not what we need. We need a hard working bruising bigman, not a jumpshooter with little to offer defensively.

Kirk is overpaid period. Point being [pun intended], if the Lakers decide to trade Odom, I don't want it to be for a point guard. Especially if it's Kirk freaking Hinrich. He's decent, but what exactly would that solve?

It would be for more than Hinrich, but that's besides the point. It's the last case safe scenario.


Right now we're just waiting on Artest and trying to convince New Jersey that Odom for RJ is a good trade.

Who else? Drew Gooden? I don't see anyone on the Bulls roster that I'd want here.. realistically speaking. Why does that even have to be a scenario? The Lakers don't need to start looking for point guards just yet.. shipping off LO just for the sake of trading seems ill-advised.
