Default How bout this for a Bulls-Knicks trade?

Bulls get Zack Randolph and David Lee

Knicks get Larry Hughes and Joakim Noah



Why Bulls do it: The Bulls get rid of Hughes and his two bloated years of contract. They don't need him since they have Gordon. In the process, they get Randolph which provides the low post scoring and presence the Bulls desperately need and get David Lee, who is a perfect role player and rebounder to complement Rose, Gordon and Nocioni as scorers. Also, by getting Lee and Randolph, it frees up Bulls to trade Gooden and get another asset. Gooden has value because of his expiring contract.

You know Paxson would want Lee badly and taking a chance on Randolph is the way to get him.


Why Knicks do it: Knicks are desperately trying to get under cap in 2010 and getting rid of Randolph helps the most. Knicks won't mind paying Hughes two years of salary since it comes off in 2010, and in the meantime, gives D'Antoni another scorer in his running offense.

Noah will likely benefit from change of scenery since he had problems with teammates. He acts as a replacement for Lee, but the Knicks would have had to resign Lee to a big contract BEFORE 2010. Because of the mess Isiah left the Knicks, they can't give Lee the money he wants. With Noah, they can wait until AFTER 2010 free agent class if they want to sign him long term.


And the trade works salary wise.....

You don't give up a lottery pick that showed so much promise so you can get rid of a contract. No matter how "bloated".

Yes because Noah is entering his 2nd year. Lee is stuck at where he is now while Noah has room to grow.

I'm stuck on this one. I disagree with trading Noah although I don't think he'll peak much more than he already has in the NBA but you get David Lee. I always thought Zach Randoplh would be the missing piece in Chicago. They need that low post scorer to take pressure off and open up Hinrich's, Gordon's and Deng's games to the point of where they can play to their full potential. It would definitly make scoring easier for them as well. The only fault for Chicago I could see is that you burry Tyrus Thomas and you also have ZERO defense inside unless you think Drew Gooden is the answer, which he isn't. New York side of things, moving Zach Randolph is always a good thing.

Makes sense for both teams, unless Bulls want also want cap space in 2010.

it sounds good in theory but chicago is short on size down low so i can't envision them trading away their starting Center for Lee even though he is really good. plus there is no way paxson goes for a pothead like Z-Bo.

Noah is a center? I think Paxson would jump at chance to get Lee over Noah.

Good trade in terms of need but chicago loses their lone center capable of starting. Yeah noah is just pretending to be a center but still..

I wonder if this would work..

Hughes
Noce or Gooden

for

Noah is not a true center anyway. They should make this trade and try to sign Diop for MLE or something.
