On paper, Tyreke will be the perfect sidekick for Rose.
Unfortunately, Tyreke has the desire and talent level to be a franchise player.
Bulls reportedly planning to trade Deng and Noah.
http://www.hoopsworld.com/nba-sunday...ing-noah-tradeBulls Considering Options For Next Season
Here’s what we know about the Chicago Bulls’ 2012-2013 season, even before it starts: the team’s star, Derrick Rose, isn’t likely to play a game until after the All-Star break, and might not play at all next season depending on how his rehab goes. Chicago also has about $56 million committed to Rose, Luol Deng, Carlos Boozer, and Joakim Noah next year, and considering the cap is probably going to be set at right around $58 million, that’s going to make it hard to institute major changes to the team via free agency. Finally, Omer Asik and Taj Gibson are going to be eligible to receive extensions soon, but Chicago might not have the financial flexibility to hold onto them.
All that said, it’s no real surprise that Mitch Lawrence of the New York Daily News dropped a little nugget in a recent write-up claiming that the Bulls will consider trading Deng and/or Noah this offseason in exchange for a top draft pick and/or cap flexibility. For one, there have been rumors for weeks about Chicago shopping Deng to teams with draft picks high enough to select Harrison Barnes, but it shouldn’t take a basketball genius to point out the flaws in those rumblings.
For one, Deng is headed for offseason wrist surgery as soon as the Olympics wrap up, and that means he’s likely to miss an early portion of the season. Not a lot of teams are going to give up a top five draft pick for a guy who’s going to miss a reasonable chunk of a season in which he’s set to earn $13.3 million. Secondly, despite the fact that he’s coming off an All-Star season, nobody considers Deng a franchise player. What young team is going to take on extra salary for a secondary player recovering from surgery, while giving up a top lottery pick that could produce similarly for a fraction of the price?
That’s exactly the kind of thing the Bulls would consider for Deng, but it seems doubtful they’ll get the kind of value they want. Noah, however, might be a more attractive trading chip. He’s about as injury-prone a player as the Bulls have, but he’s also one of the better passing big men in the game, is great defensively, and is a perfect energy guy for a playoff team. Of course, he’ll earn around $50.5 million over the next four seasons, and that’s a tough pill to swallow for a player who has so little value as a scorer, but he’d almost certainly generate more interest than Deng.
Even if it’s Noah who gets moved, however—and Asik has proven himself a capable starting NBA center if they have to ship off Joakim—it’s not a sure thing that he’d warrant a top pick. And are Andre Drummond or Meyers Leonard good enough to appropriately fill out that Chicago frontcourt?
Because the Bulls fell so short of expectations this season, and because Rose will be such a non-factor for most of next season, it was inevitable that we’d hear rumors about Gar Forman and John Paxson shopping around some of those bigger salaries. Carlos Boozer would be their first priority in trade, but nobody’s taking on that salary, so the next step is looking at Deng and Noah. While there are certainly teams that like them as players, liking them as paychecks is a completely different story.
Like it or not, that $56 million committed to those four players may be what the team has to deal with next season. They’ll explore trades for the guys mentioned above, but fair value will be hard to find. That won’t stop them from looking for it, though
Hello to all the Bulls fans here, maki join ha?! Galing ako sa isang Bulls Forum sa ibang site, I want to join here kasi madalas rin ako maki basa rito.
Anyway, concerning Deng, it's obvious he will play for GB and will not undergo sa isang surgery until after the Olympics, tagal may recovery period pa. Baka sa training camp wala siya, malas naman wala na nga si Rose, tapos si Deng hindi rin sure when ang balik. Lungkot ng mga balita sa Bulls.
Bulls tanking for the 2012 season like 2007 perhaps
Feeling ko lang a with Bulls trading a great big like Noah, while surrounding Rose with young talented players for 2013 season
I don't like Tyreke for the bulls. He shoots ill-advised shots and some facets of his game is the same with Rose. He isn't a good defender either.
Good thing: We can get to watch a 4-hour montage of Michael Jordan.
Warning: That's a 4-hour montage.
Tahimik ah.. anyway..
WELCOME TO CHICAGO, MARQUIS TEAGUE!
Naknamputs yari Heat or si LeBron.. gumagaling ito kapag si LeBron kalaban..
OJ Mayo is an unrestricted FA. Not sure how much can the Bulls offer him, but Bulls should go after him. Trading Noah and Deng for D-Ho and offering Mayo a substantial amount of money, Bulls are ready to go.
Although Deng's value to the team is completely unprecedented, Deng has already reached his maximum and we have seen the Bulls falling short of a Finals appearance. I think the Bulls should focus on surrounding Rose with good players.
PG - Rose/Teague
SG - Mayo/Brewer/Hamilton
SF - Butler/Korver
PF - Boozer/Gibson
C - Howard/Asik
get a better shooting guard and point guard
back up for the center position..
yun ang gusto ko makita sa Bulls next season
Chi-town won't get over the hump unless they get their Pippen 2.0
Bulls' future looked good when they had Brand and Jay Williams. Now, things look bleak since Rose going back to full speed isn't a certainty.
Ampanget ng dalawang contracts ng Bulls, Noah and Boozer, sakit nito sa future ng Bulls.
sa tingin ko the earliest time na ma-amnesty si Boozer eh next year no matter if the Bulls match Asik or not.
Sa mga 8 digit contracts mas adviceable na sa last year ng contract i-amnesty,diba hindi naman waived *** pera na makukuha ni boozer,hindi lang sya kasali sa salary cap ng Bulls. Payag ka di na naglalaro si Boozer sa Bulls binabayaran sya taon taon ng almost 20M a year. Like a Boss! I trade siguro sya sa mga teams like, Bobcats, even the Cavs, suns. Etc
