Just my take on things: I like JR Smith's potential, but to give up Eisley (who I assume is an expirer or a small deal cuz otherwise why would the Bulls want him) AND two second rounders for him?!?! Let's analyze for a second here. What makes a good first round pick? A guy who's well rounded and could possibly dominate under the right cicrumstances. What do teams usually look for in second rounders? Players who do one or more things well that fit with that specific team. There are ALOT of good shooters in the draft every year. Why give up two shots at that type of pure shooter when the next Michael Redd (who WAS btw a second rounder) could be available for JR Smith, who at BEST is that guy? Doesn't make sense to me. Also, Paxson seems to be doing a damn good job with all his draft picks and personnel moves. This just gives him more ammo. The Bulls are starting to scare me alot.
