Quick, everyone make an trade prediction that basically means nothing to either team!
To explain it, my prediction is that the Bulls will swap picks with the Bucks where:
Bucks at #10 take Gerald Henderson (trade to Bulls)
Bulls at #16 take Brandon Jennings (trade to Bucks)
I hear that the Bucks (more specifically Scott Skiles) are high no Jennings and I think that he will be sitting there at #16 (although with this draft he could go in the Top 10).
I don't expect anyone to know what is being sent in return. I mean, in 2006 did anyone predict that the Bulls at #2 would swap with Portland at #4 for Viktor Khyrapa (or however you spell it?) It doesn't mean anything that extra guy in reality. I'll just say "future considerations", or a future 2nd round pick or protected 2012 1st rounder goes to the Bucks. Or maybe, Aaron Gray.
Anyway, this trade doesn't really mean anything. Both teams get their man, with the Bulls probably getting a player that would not have otherwise fallen to their draft position.
This is a trade that wouldn't really apply to the, "Where there's smoke, there's fire" saying since it is kind of a draft night decision that happens after the Bulls/Bucks watch the draft board play out.
Anyone else have a rather inconsequential trade prediction that they want to throw out there in the waning seconds before the draft starts? I'll mail a shiny new wooden nickel to one that comes true that I haven't really heard as a rumor before right............now.
So, it's not like it means "nothing" to either team. It just doesn't do anything to improve either team more than just taking a draft pick that is still "in their range". If you missed the draft tonight and afterward I told you that the Bulls took Henderson and the Bucks took Jennings, you probably wouldn't feel like there was DEFINITELY a trade involved.
Am I describing everything properly?
