Default Would You Do the #2 for Joakim Noah?

If you're Michael Jordan and you can get Noah for the #2 pick in this draft, do you make the trade or is it not enough?

Noah is a good character guy and one of the better centers in the league.

Maybe the #2 for Noah and Chicago's 1st rounder?

Hell no. The #2 pick has potential to be greater than Noah ever was. You don't trade a #2 pick for a 12/10 double double guy unless your goal is to suck. Then again, with MJ running the show, who knows.

Hey Michael, would you trade the #2 pick for Noah?

I'd normally agree, but after Davis this draft is such a crap shoot. Charlotte would get a starting center for the future.

Here's the thing, are we sure any of Robinson, Beal, Drummond, Kidd-Gilchrist etc. are going to be any better than Noah?

The OP is the most obvious Lebron stan on this forum. He obviously wants the Bulls to trade away Noah who is was considered a major threat to eliminating the Heat. Fortunately for the Bulls, they aren't stupid, and hopefully the Bobcats aren't either.

I don't know if you realize this or not, but a double double center with a sharp offense mind that gives his all out on the court and doesn't get in trouble is pretty valuable in the NBA. Also, can you honestly see ANYONE in this draft (Anthony Davis included) definitely being a better player than Joakim Noah? I can't. I see a number of guys with the potential to be better than Noah, but again, Noah is a pretty damn good player.

Now, would I do Noah for #2 if I was the Bobcats? Probably not. But I wouldn't laugh at it. I'd need the Bulls to throw something else in (not just cash for a 2nd rounder). I'd ask the Bulls to throw in one of Kyle Korver or Jimmy Butler with Noah.

Noah.

I'm not even sure if Anthony Davis will be much better than Noah. Joakim Noah is a pretty good player. Doesn't have monster stats but he's a very good center.

Yeah, I think you'd definitely need another piece. Maybe Noah and two first rounders.

I just like the idea of getting an established starter and high character guy for Charlotte. Here's the thing, if you pick Harrison Barnes and 3 years from now he's Marvin Williams, Noah's going look really good then, right?

I honestly didn't even think about Miami or LeBron when posting this. I didn't.

What you said is true, but you only make that type of trade for someone that is a complete player, that you can build your franchise around, or someone that can win you 10 extra games by themselves. Not for a younger Tyson Chandler.
