within 2 days, hinrich will be traded to the blazers, hopefully for rudy fernandez. tt will be gone before the summer's out, as will tim thomas, miller, gordon, maybe deng. our team will look quite different next year. maybe we can trade some expiring contracts for stoudamire or bosh. the only three that will definitely be here next year are rose, salmons, and noah.

Based on the NCAA website there are 343 Division I Basketball teams and let's say an average of 11 players per team, that gives us 3773 players eligible for the NBA draft since players only have to be out of HS one season (thus all freshman are eligible). Add the unknown number of international players and that number must be over 5000 possible players. Now, the Bulls have pick #16 and #26 and the writer is trying to convince me that out of that pool the Bulls can't find ANY impressive players? Wow, the Bulls must have some VERY high standards.

Dude! Portland is not giving up Rudy Fernandez for Kirk H. Nobody will take TT because all he can do is jump! We have to live with these guys and hope that Rose can make them better or we get some players that can do more than just shoot threes or dunk. Gordon's line in his huge game against Boston 42,0,1. One dimensional.

do you even watch basketball or better yet do you know how to read? the article is about the bad picks we had at 16 and 26 in our history. also yes, the nba does have very high standards, at picks 16 and 26 you're more than likely to get a very unimpressive player.

can you not draft ? tell the league you rather make trades or sign free agents rather than pick some college guys you don' t want.

why not? rudy fernandez doesn't fit on that team, he'll never get enough minutes with brandon roy at the two. portland wants a decent PG, that's kirk hinrich, we'll probably have to take on pryzbilla's contract maybe some other garbage, and we may have to give up someone else to make it work, but hey

I see your point but there are probably alot better options out there than Kirk Hinrich. I just don't think you make moves just to fill a spot. Especially when your giving up that much. What do you think about Sam Young?

Sam Young is a nice player but is already 24. Blair makes more sense.

Why trade Kirk? He's by far our best defender

bulls don't want to pay 10 mil for him to come off the bench. if there is any player that i'd like, it's derozan, he can be like rudy gay.

barracks is prolly one of the most informed people on here that i've seen. his first comment is pretty much the truth next year's team will be pretty much overhauled.

portland likes hinrich and have for a long time. they want a point guard that compliments roy. if hinrich is on that team their starting 5 looks a whole lot better.

Some how Minnesota was looking to stock pile draft picks. Couldn't Pax and Co traded down with Minnie?

The last time we had a draft this underwhelming Krause had 2 first rounders, I think, and 3 2nd rounders. What a waste.

Who were they? Curry and Chandler?
