You know Kirk's best 2 seasons, Chicago did well in the Playoffs. Then he has one bad season, everyone jumps on him and wants him gone. If you use logic here...wow Kirk plays good we do good - maybe we should build around him and Deng. :)
Kirk Hinrich - solid all around player. Not flashy, gets the job done.
Luol Deng - real good offensive player. Not flashy, gets the job done.
Ben Gordon - streaky, short, can't play defense. Get the **** out.
Tyrus Thomas - out of control, talks to much. Get the **** out.
Larry Hughes - I like you, but you make a lot of money, throw you in with Gordon and Thomas and get a big man.
Chris Duhon - we could use you to sign and trade in this deal.
Ben Gordon, Thomas, Hughes, and Duhon
JO, Travis Diener, 2nd Rd draft pick.
Then maybe trade the 1st pick down a little and pick up a lower 1st and another 2nd round. (The more darts you throw the better chance you have at hitting)
Thabo/1st rd draft pick (Gordon, CDR, Rush)
Only issue with that is JO is very injury prone. Another way to go would be try to use those 4 players to get Beasley. (But does Miami really need 2 shooting guards?) Or try to get a guy like Okafor or pry Jefferson away from the Timberwolves.
