Default Bulls Willing To Trade Larry Hughes

Quote:
The Bulls also have discovered some interest in guard Larry Hughes, as long as they're willing to take a big contract in return. Since the Bulls need to thin out their backcourt, some possibilities could include Portland's Joe Przybilla, New York's Jared Jeffries, Dallas' Erick Dampier or Denver's Kenyon Martin.

I might be one of the few Bulls fans to admit this, but I wouldn't mind seeing K-Mart in red and black. My heart sunk when we got Larry Hughes, I just can't stand him.

Yeah, I miss the Iverson-Hughes days. I hope Hughes starts playing like he did before he got the big contract. I was always a fan and was really excited when it seemed he was starting to show his full potential...

If I were the Bulls, I would go for Dampier.

Granted he isn't great, but big men are generally overpaid, and at least he is decent.

He can help out in the middle, or be swapped out down the line.

Denver would be thin upfront if they swapped out Kenyon Martin. They still might jump at the chance to get rid of someone like Martin or Nene for Hughes since he's only got 2 seasons left whereas Martin has 3 and Nene has 4.

I wouldn't be blown away by any of the players listed, but i'd probably be like Manute for Ever! and chose Kenyon Martin over the others. I was actually surprised to see that there were supposedly teams interested in Hughes.

Jeffries and James? Is that what the Bulls are offering?

Don't know about that deal.

I don't see the need for the Bulls to be taking back roleplayers, unless they have short deals. Martin or Damp are good enough to start on the Bulls, which is better then adding Jeffries and James to the bench for a couple of years. James isn't gonna play and Jefferies would probably be behind Deng and Noc. If they swapped Jeffries for Malik Rose, then it'd clear some capspace a bit quicker and they could probably just send both out to pasture.

Actually I thought Kirk Hinrich would be moved before Hughes.

I think Denver could use Hughes but I'd rather have JR Smith starting over him at the 2.

Also I think Kleiza will be playing minutes as a back-up at the 4 and Steven Hunter if healthy will be playing minutes as a back-up at the 5.

NY should send Randolph or Curry for Hughes.

Chicago wouldn't want Curry back since they're about to acquire Brad Miller.

Randolph would be a good pick-up for Chicago but that would cut down on Tyrus & Noah's minutes at the 4.
