Default Bulls: Conley Jr a possible option

Picking Conley gives Bulls options

If the Chicago Bulls opt for a more traditional point guard by drafting Ohio State's Mike Conley, it could pave the way for the move of Kirk Hinrich to off guard, which would reduce the demands on him as a floor leader.

In turn, guard Ben Gordon could be expendable in a trade for an inside scorer.

In another scenario, Conley could be drafted then moved to the Portland Trailblazers in a multiplayer deal that would include forward-center Zach Randolph.

Bulls fans, am I the only one that doesn't like that idea? I see Hinrich as a pure point guard who wouldn't do too well at off-guard. And do you guys really want to give away Gordon for a post scorer?

No need to make their back court even more crowded. They need to give some room for players to develop like Thabo Sefalosha. I think the smart pick would be Spencer Hawes for them.

I think the Bulls can make a deal with the Atlanta Hawks that send PJ Brown and their 1st round pick to the Atlanta Hawks in exchange for the 3rd overall pick.

If they trade Hinrich to the Lakers, it can be a possibilty, but i doubt he wil last when they pick.

So ATL is basically switching picks for nothing?? PJ Brown is a free agent, he no longer has that appealling expiring contract. ESPN's trade machine is wrong now, the years left on the contact were including last season. Meaning PJ Brown has no years left on that big expensive contract.

Maybe if ATl got Duhon or Hinrich they'd maybe swap, which would be a nice idea for ATL, but does Chi really care that much 2 move 2 the 3rd pick??

I'll double that. $20,000 they don't make that trade.

I'm still hoping that Conley or Yi fall down to the Kings.

I don't think Conley is as high on team's lists as some may think. I think he is probably high on some teams lists, but so aren't Horford, both Wrights, Jianlian, Noah, Brewer, and Jeff Green. You throw in a wildcard like Hawes, who I still think will get a very real look by the Celtics at 5 and certainly the Bulls at 9, and off of a sudden it isn't so crazy to think that Conley could fall to 9 or even 11. If the Kings trade Bibby, I think they take him, but if not, it is possible they take Thorton as people seem to think they will.

Would anyone be shocked to see the Hawks take Horford or Jianlian at 3 over Conley? Memphis to take Horford? Celtics to take Horford or Jeff Green? The Bucks to grab either Wright or Jeff Green? Minnesota to take Noah, either Wright, Brewer, Green, or possibly even Hawes? The Hornets to stick with Felton, and take Brewer, Noah, or Green? Chicago to take Noah or Hawes? The Kings to not trade Bibby, and replace Aretest with Green, Thorton, Brewer, or Julian Wright?

I wouldn't be shocked to see any of those things. I would expect Memphis and Minnesota to take Conley, but look how the PG's dropped last year.

yeah I also see the Bulls taking Hawes if he's still available...he could develop without pressure with the Bulls..and in a couple of years be a Brad Miller type of player

oh yeah I bet atlanta wants to deal that pick right away...see PJ brown is the key to this deal working....if they offer anyone else like gordon for the 3rd pick...the hawks will end trade talks...its PJ brown or no deal at all

Hinrich could play a 2 gaurd, but why do that when he is doing just fine at point. They really need a post player, Hawes is there, take him.
