Would you guys do it?

Quote:
Trying for Bosh has been argued to death in Chicago's fan circles (mention Bosh on Blog-a-Bull and prepare for a deluge of comments), but Brad Miller, Tyrus Thomas, and James Johnson/Taj Gibson/future 1st rounder for Bosh and Marcus Banks might be feasible. We get our man, a proven superstar with post presence and athleticism, and the Raptors get rid of Banks' lousy contract while getting the serviceable Miller and the freakishly athletic Thomas (the numbers work here, with the Johnson/Gibson/1st rounder part excluded). Miller would replace Bosh's rebounding and some of his offense, and his contract would expire after the season, freeing up cap space for 2010. Thomas could thrive in a new environment, and, at 23, his highly touted potential is still there. Bosh can leave in 2010, so the Raptors would be wise to at least explore what they can get for him now.

They're panicing over losing Gordon?

I don't think i would do that deal.

I'd rather try and deal with GSW.

I could have sworn I've read this or a similar Bulls wet dream in here at least twice now over the past six months.

any bull trade should start with deng + noah. For example, deng/noah/hinrich - that's a starting point. Miller is a future FA and is on his way out, thomas is a near bust, johnson has 0 value.

But they are right to be panicking, because without gordon that team is bust. They have no 1st scoring option, and their frontcourt is all energy and no skill. Rose has still a lot to prove, his defense is atrocious and seems to be more of a scorer than a true PG. Still a fantastic player, but maybe he will be just another gilbert arenas. Right now I like our chances much better.

not to mention that the 1st rounder would be practically useless, since a rose/bosh combo is pretty much a sure-fire playoff team.

So they keep their three best players:

Rose, Deng, and Salmons

and we give our best player.

No way. Sounds alot like the New jersey trade!!

I think a few years ago it would have made more sense because of all the hype that Thomas had.... But he just hasn't sold me that he can do anything special but rely on his freakish athletic ability to make a highlight play once in a while.

A deal around this (one of Hinrich/Deng, 2 or 3 of Tyrus/Noah/Johnson) is the 2nd most likely trade for Bosh if we put him on the table. If Miami's offering Beasley though, which I think they are, there's nothing Chicago can offer short of Rose that can top them IMO.
