Re: Potential Deals
I agree that they are valuable assets, but they are just that assets and they are unknown. If we can turn assets into a proven star than they were used wisely.
I'll admit that there's risk involved, but there's risk associated with holding onto the assets as well as using them to get a star.
Boozer and Deng if not moved will come off the books soon and will give us some financial flexibility. I could see Deng returning at a discounted rate, but he won't take a huge pay cut if some team throws a lot of money at him just to remain a Bull.
Mirotic could end up being a bust. The player we draft with the Charlotte pick could end up being a bust.
Or if we trade those assets for a proven star then maybe it doesn't work out with him in Chicago. Who knows?
Personally though if it means Kevin Love i'd be willing to give up those assets.
