4 Team Deal
Obviously draft picks would be added
Bulls Trade: Carlos Boozer, Luol Deng, Joakim Noah
Bulls Recieve: Lamarcus Aldridge, Nene Hilario, Meyers Leonard, Will Barton
Why: Bulls need financial relief and would like a star to pair with Rose. This trade saves them 12 mil and gives them plenty of cap room for 2014. Portland demands at least Noah in return for Aldridge. Boozer and Aldridge cannot play together, so swapping his bad contract for Nene's makes sense. The bulls cannot afford to re-sign Deng and need to get something in return for him while they can. The emergence of Jimmy Butler, draft pick Snell, and Barton can pick up his slack. Leonard provides depth if Nene is injured.
Portland Trades: Lamarcus Aldridge, Meyers Leonard, Will Barton
Portland Receives: Joakim Noah, Tristan Thompson
Why: Lamarcus Aldridge wants out of Portland. Now is the time to facilitate a trade because his value is high. If he becomes disgruntled and is reflected by his play on the court, his value drops. Portland gets two young bigs in return. Noah Provides the intangibles and leadership necessary to win. Thompson is a budding star two years removed from the 5th overall pick. He can grow with 1st Rnd PG McCollum.
Cleveland Trades: Tristan Thompson
Cleveland Receives: Luol Deng
Why: Cleveland is looking for Veteran Leadership. Deng is a two-time AllStar and a great teammate that leads by example. Can hit the open jumper or slash to the rim without the ball. Perfect complement for Kyrie Irving. Thompson became an expendable piece when the Cavs took Anthony Bennet with the #1 pick. This trade provides a solid roster for the Cavs to lure the Golden Child back home next summer. (Lebron James)
Washington Trades: Nene Hilario
Washington Receives: Carlos Boozer
Why: Boozer is a much better scorer and rebounder than Hilario. They both have equally bad contracts, Boozer is viewed as the better teammate. Boozer has been much healthier, playing in every game last season. Nice compliment for John Wall, Bradley Beal, and 1st Rnd pick Otto Porter
