Trade them both with some other stuff to get Bosh and resign BG.

Instead of trading up deal the 16, 25, and Deng or Gordon (sign and trade) for Bosh.

I love reading comments from fans about trading people or dumping people. There rarely seems to be any thought about the other team involved. This would be a great deal for the Bulls. But Toronto would do it why?

Bulls need to TRADE those picks in a deal for a veteran. Bosh doesnt impress me, but he all that is out there. Hes a marginal star and thin as a rail. Bulls should get him if it means minimal damage. The Goal is to get a bonefide star and some VETERAN help. Bulls need to match power with ORLANDO and CLEVELAND the new sherrifs on the block.

Call me a cynic, but i have no trust or faith in Jerry Reinsdorf. If his goal is to package the 2 picks into one in order to save money, that's cool. My problem is, i don't think it's for any reason other than to add pocket money into Reinsdorf's wallet.

It aggravates me that he uses the Bulls to offset his White Sox interests, which i believe he does. The Bulls fans have been an extremely loyal bunch, while the Sox fans have been sporadic at best. I'd have no problem if it didn't keep the Bulls as an average type team, when they're receiving enough finances to have the team at the top of the free agent ladder.

Let's see...we have no center and no defense. That horrid center we got from Pittsburgh and Ben Gordon couldn't play defense against my grandmother. The NBA finals showed how pitiful the East is. Sorry Pacman, we need a real GM. You're fired!

Seems to me we need to fire the hitting coach.

it seems that everything involved with the bulls has some kind of financial reason as to why they can't do this or that. they sell out every game. this tax that they mention should not prevent them from doing what they have to do to bring Chicago another champion.

We can get there, but we need a another superstar who can run the floor and score underneath, not a center. Then we'll be able to add veteran pieces to fit in who want to win one or two or three championships.

Sort of kind ah's like Bosh we don't need....

Keep building this into something that's going to last a few years and win multiple times please

How not to win a championship... Trade up in the draft to get Gerald Henderson, another dud from Duke. He can join the other whats-his-name dud from Duke on their bench making a gazillion dollars for being the product of an excellent college program that can only produce a handful of good pro players.

This upcomming draft has the potential to be the weakest in years. This is a one player draft and that is Blake Griffin, and I am not sold on him. How tall is he really? And does he have a game outside of 5 feet? The Bulls need to go after the free agent center from Orlando and either Odom or Arizza from the Lakers.

I don't understand the logic of trading UP in an already really weak draft.
They should trade DOWN with another team if at all possible.
A couple years ago they didn't have a draft pick when Chris Paul went 3rd. This draft would have been the one to not have a pick.
Bulls have had relatively bad luck with drafts and order. At least last year they got an easy pick. Sad that Ben Gordon and Ty Thomas were in the top 5, when if timinig was better Bulls could have had Mellow, Wade, Paul, etc...
Oh well, that's how it goes.

Sad that Pax is still just looking at Guards, or so it would seem.

Bulls should do that! Let's move up in the draft!

bulls will make their 20th mistake in last year if they don't sign Gordon (ie not trading for Kobe or Kg)..

Toronto will probably want more but may have no choice but to trade Bosh. Bosh is an unrestricted free agent next year has shown little inclination to returning to Toronto. Maybe Toronto picks up some players this year that make him decide to stay. Not likely though, given the team's history.
