Dwight Howard available. How about Gasol for Howard?
Howard is still a top 5 center in the league. I think the Bulls should take a chance. Gasol wants out this summer. Trade him by the deadline before he walks away for nothing. Throw in Taj Gibson if the Rockets want. That still leaves the Bulls with Howard, Portis and Mirotic.
Then this summer let Noah go to clear up space to sign people and rebuild the bench. Get rid of Dunleavy and Hinrich and Snell and Brooks. And completely rebuild the bench.
C: Dwight Howard
SF: Doug McDermott
And the Rockets wouldn't find a better deal. That is a fair trade for them. They would have Gasol/Harden/Taj to build around.
