Ya think Chicago make playoffs this year? Fingers crossed....

Actually, I proposed a Zach Randolph and David Lee For Larry Hughes and Joakim Noah trade. Think that helps both teams and their goals.

You know Chitown is talented, filthy style. Yeah...Chicago won't make the playoffs next season...:jackoff emoticon:

Lee doesn't have the size that Noah has. That deal makes no sense as chicago would be left without a center except for the too slow to play in vinny del negro's system aaron gray.

Noah isn't a real center anyway. They should sign Diop or something....

But Lee and Randolph give Bulls more inside presence and rebounding....Lee is a step up from Noah and ya know Paxson would LOVE David Lee....perfect Paxson guy.....

he is a perfect paxson guy but who plays Center, Gooden? Check the Chicago Sun Times. Paxson said they are NOT going to go out and sign any free agents except for Luol Deng and Ben Gordon. They already have 13 roster spots filled. That's what happens when you've been in the lottery for the past 10 years. There is no vacancy in Chicago for NBA players except #1 overall picks like Derrick Rose.

If you get Randolph and Lee, you can trade Gooden and his expiring contract for a real center, perhaps. You certaintly wouldn't need Gooden with this trade.

I don't see Marbury doing a better job since he doesn't have a good big man to work the pick and roll. I don't have faith in Randolph or Curry.

Seems like a lot of money for Chris Freakin' Duhon, but whatever I guess. They're going to suck until some of their bad contracts run out or are traded away. Might as well give Duhon a chance and see if he's starter material.

Idk I always felt this guy was underrated. Can defend, shoot, distribute, push the break. Whats not to like? There was a reason Skiles started him over Ben Gordon.

Gave him the whole mid level exception? Guess thats it in the FA market for the Knicks.

From what I saw of him I would kinda agree with Final Wrath. Just not absolutely sure he's the best fit in Dantoni's system but neither are most of the Knicks roster

He can distribute well enough to tally 4 assists in only 23 minutes a game for a team with no great scorers... D'Antoni should like him. Shot selection seems to be his only weakness so far in his career.

$6 million per?! this is worse than the jared jeffries contract.


Duhon is undersized, can't shoot, is slow for a PG, has weak handles for a PG, and has a SERIOUS drinking problem. He's going to get all bubbled up in NYC. just watch.

Wrong. Jeffries received a 5 year contract.

In order to sign a player for only two years, you have to overpay them. Otherwise, they'll just go for the more secure, longer contract somewhere else.

Smart move to get Duhon. If they overpaid for these 2 years, who cares? As long as he comes off books by 2010.
