Trade Idea (CHI,ORL,CLE)
Luol Deng to Cleveland
Arron Afflalo to Chicago
Earl Clark to Chicago
Tristan Thompson to Orlando
C.J miles to Orlando
with some picks added but not sure how to distribute them.
Cleveland gets the 3man they need to get their season back on track.
Chicago Starts Afflalo at the 2 and Moves Jimmer Butler to the 3spot with Earl Clark adding bench depth.
Orlando gets a starting PF with potential to grow with the other youngsters on this team while C.J Miles contract comes off the books this season.
Cleveland isn't getting rid of Tristan Thompson in order to rent Luol Deng for 1/2 a season...Use thy brain sir
An extension would have to be agreed upon prior to the trade.Similar to the Harden trade. Luol was unhappy when the Bulls would not give him an extension. They have the talent to keep him interested in signing his LAST major contract with them. They can get to the playoffs easy with this team if healthy.
90% of season. Use your brain Sir Taylor. EXTENSION Needed for trade to go through.
I would love to see Deng on the Cavs, but the Bulls aren't giving him up for Clark and Affalo and Thompson isn't going anywhere.
I don't hate that deal. They coveted Affalo when he was in Denver and Clark could develop into something. Affalo and Rose backcout is nice. I think Deng will get more money in free agency than the Bulls are willing to give him so getting something before he walks is probably the Bulls reality.
I'm not sure if the Cavs would want Deng long term or give up Tristan Thompson, but that trade works for all three teams really. Not bad for a -12 trade post honestly.
