The Bulls will also receive a first round pick from the Mavs.
The trade rumor I keep hearing, although Ainge vigorously denies it, which I believe, would be Allen for Kirk and the expiring contract of Jerome James. This trade makes zero sense for the Celtics but as a Bulls fan, I would love it. A line up of Rose, Allen, Deng, Gibson, and Noah would be much better than the current starting 5. It would also allow the Bulls to offer Allen a lesser contract and still have room to go after a big name free agent. The Bulls would get a lot better real fast.
I am sticking to my guns Heels. He is just too inconsistent for me. He might have the better potential but Gibson brings it every night. Now if they sign a guy like Bosh, Gibson would be great coming off the bench.
I think Kirk is a decent starter. He is a very good defender and decent 3 shooter
^ He is an overrated defender. Look at what he has done the last couple of games. Willie Green, Marcus Thornton, & Eric Gordon all shot high FG%'s against Hirich & scored well above their season points per game average.
Hinrich shoots bricks. I wouldn't call him a descent shooter. He has the worst FG% on the entire team out of the players that play significant minutes. His 3 point % isn't good either....Deng & Salmons shoot better than he does from deep.
I like Hinrich, in the minority I know, but if they can get value for him then he has to go. The Bulls need a second option badly.
they're not looking for a second option, they're looking to drop salary for the summer
Gibson sure didnt bring it last night.. Got abused all evening long..
Rondo and Kirk Hinrich... Together :-D
