Hinrich in a change of scenery would probably go back to form, which is a stop 5-10 PG in the league, especially if he has a superstar playing next to him(Wade) cuz he has never had one in his NBA career. And if you get players like Thabo or Tyrus, you don't know what you fully have yet, but its not crazy to believe both will become valuable pieces to a basketball team once they are matured enough.
I don't think I want to give up Deng, Kirk, and Thabo/TT for a guy that hasn't played a minute in the NBA yet. If this were an established veteran that could put up 20/10 and get to the All-Star game every year, then it would be more reasonable, but our players are still growing, and have lots of potential too. You said it, Deng is on the verge of becoming an All-Star, and we have all seen the flashes from TT. Thabo really improved a lot last year, and Kirk should easily be able to revert to his form from 2006. If they all play up to their abilities, trading those 3 for Beasley, and a couple bad contracts (Blount is the only guy under contract for next season that makes more than $4 million that they would want to include), I don't think it would work out best for the Bulls. Blount turns the ball over more than Gordon, and doesn't play good defense. We wouldn't ever play him, because we would have Beasley, Gooden, Noah, and Gray, so his $8 million/year for two more years would be sitting on the bench doing nothing. We might have to take on Marcus Banks, who has 3 years left on his contract, and isn't any good anyway. I just can't see this working out.
