Larry Hughes isn't doing ****. You can't have two shooting guards and Chris Duhon who suck ass. Sure Gordan and Hughes can score 30 any given night, but aren't you pissed at the constant 3-11 with 9 points games?
Not sure where you guys stand cap-wise... But this F/A class is loaded.
Trade your #1 and Noc. for J.O. Resign Loul but let Ben go.
Free agents that I think would interest the Bulls:
Dasagna Diop (Fan of this guy) -- Given 30min. a night he could avg. 10/10/2 easy. He's a defensive minded dude.
So say the Bulls go cheap and wind up with this:
PG - Kirk Hinrich
SG - James Jones OR Pietrus
SF - Loul Deng
PF - Jermaine O'Neal
C - Dasagna Diop
I think James Jones is very underrated. He's a great 3 pt. shooter who has never really gotten to play because of where he's been. He was at Phoenix where they had a ton of shooters, and now he's getting shadowed my Martell Webster and Travis Outlaw in Portland.
I would love that trade in Indy...Nocioni and 1st pick would be perfect for us. We need someone who can play defense.
