    Well there's a strong chance OKC is coming out of the West next year.

    I thought Caruso was considered to be a valued asset? Because Giddey was useless for OKC.

    Giddey wasnít useless. He got exposed a bit in the playoffs with his 3 ball being inconsistent.

    He can score a bit, pass and rebound. Heís young still, he still has room to improve. If he can bring his 3 point shooting up a tad bit so teams wonít leave him at the 3 point line he should be good. Heís not gonna be part of a big 3 or anything but he has a good chance of turning into a solid ďotherĒ on a contending team.

    I see the thinking. Other contenders probably weren't offering anything that fit their long-term focus.

    The Bulls have been determined to find a playmaker to replace Lonzo Ball, and Giddey , 21, comes with an All-Star potential that would unlikely be realized with the Thunder because of the playmaking starpower who surrounded him. The Bulls will offer him an opportunity to have the ball in his hands and so much more freedom pass and score.

    Caruso will be a ufa next summer. They had their chances to get more for him but they waited too long.

    Seems like most of the moves the bulls make end badly.

    OKC still needs to figure out its size issues. Hopefully, they're not a bunch of Edey-iots and pass on Zach. They need some tactical flexibility and having a high-level rebounder, screener, roller, rebounder, and finisher would provide that. This incredibly strict adherence to five-out I don't agree with. Need a few more wrinkles in their playbook.

I think Caruso for Giddey straight up is pretty fair for both sides with which directions they are going as a team.

    It's a fine move if you're high on Giddey's potential. Personally I don't see it. Love it for OKC tho.

    Yeah Giddey was bad all year and really got exposed in the playoffs.
