Default If you had a choice between...

Our current roster with no major tweaks


Or


Deng Gordon Odom Wallace/other variations of possible Bulls trade.


I would choose the latter.

the second option.

Gives us depth at many positions and we can keep kwame until he expires in which then we can afford to sign players FINALLY.

you know it's kinda odd when you think about it, kobe demanded the lakers get better or they shoud trade him, if they end up trading him they get deeper, and end up with some serious financial room to operate in the next couple years...
you obviously can't replace a player like kobe, but with his salary and to some extent his temperment it's kinda rough to build around him, as it is for any swing player for that matter

any player you get from the Bulls will be saying bye bye to you when their contract expires, that's one of the only problem

Agreed....

With that team, do you go after Artest too or is Luke Walton part of the equation as well?

Do they even run the Triangle or is pjax gone too?

why do you say that? do you have proof that this will happen? or are you just spouting off? i'm surprised someone who asks who kurt rambis is has such deep insight into the minds of the players...

first of all, Deng & Gordon can both get larger/longer contracts from their existing team than from any other team. secondly, who knows, they may be negotiating their extensions this summer (just like they did with Heinrich).

their contracts may be extended or renegotiated before a trade to aid in getting the salaries to match....

I think the trade would still have to be made based on their existing contracts. correct? Thus Ben Wallace would HAVE to be included.

yeah, but their existing contracts (which still have one more year) are the salary numbers which are used for trading purposes. I think. "rookie scale contract". see Heinrich's contract under real gm
