    Geez, talk about a tempting platter. We'd have to take on a bad contract to make this one work.

    Not really i bet they bulls will do this they need a 2. Tom Thibodeau loves D. I bet we can get it done for a player to be named later or a 2rd draft pick because they have cap room. Im sure somee team would love to have Djones he is a solid player

    Not a bad deal for whoever get the 2 Jones boys.

    I'm sure Bird is going to ask about trying to acquire a big man only.

    I wouldn't mind getting Taj Gibson, but I don't know if Chicago is willing to trade him away from Dahntay and Solo.

    With Boozer, I don't know why Chicago really wants Gibson if all he's going to do is come off the bench.

    Maybe if you ask nicely enough you can get D. Rose for Brandon Rush while your dreaming.

    Would Brandon Rush + Solo get us Jason Thompson, and if yes, should we?

    I don't think we'd be able to get Taj right now because Boozer is injured and out for a little while.

    I was thinking the same thing.

    We trade Brandon, Dahntay and Solo for Jason Thompson and Marcus Landry (just as a salary throw in).

    Taj Gibson's value isn't more than Dahntay and Solo, IMO.

    You're right. Teams just line up to trade promising young PF's for scrubs at the end of a teams bench that can't make the playoffs. Which of the 2 players they'd recieve, one will be released soon and could be had for free otherwise anyway if no trade is made.

    Sure, keep dreaming.

    It's not like I'm mentioning getting a guy like Blake Griffin or something.

    These players being brought up won't have much of a role with their team anyway.

    These are just some names being mentioned.

    You think Taj Gibson is some kind of dream player?

    Maybe San Antonio would take a flyer on the Kobe stopper if we throw Rush in instead of Solo, and send us back something decent as a one year rental in return.

    Jason Thompson works, so does Reggie Evans, Kris Humphries, and Hakim Warrick. The last three are more likely to happen than Thompson but I love his game. Kris Humphries anyone?

    No, but he was a productive 10 point and 8 rebound player as a rookie. Solo has never done anything in his entire career. Dahntay started on a playoff team when he was forbidden from shooting the ball. Since then he's become a complete disruption to the offense, and while a scrappy defender, Bruce Bowen he is not.

    Why would a team trying to contend for a title trade away front line depth for scrubs? Especially when one of them could be had for the vet minimum without any loss of depth after the Pacers release them. It just makes no sense.

    Taj Gibson showed 10x more than Hansbrough did, and he doesn't carry the injury worry of a shot to the head like Tyler. Yet, I wouldn't even trade Tyler for those 2. It's not that Taj is a "dream player", it's more that you're giving up guys who barely play, and expect to receive a player who played very well his rookie year. Terribly unrealistic.

    Yi Jianlian and Julian Wright work as well. These two as well as Evans, Humphries, Warrick, and Thompson all work financially and all are in the last year of their contracts.

    Humphries would give us some PF depth behind Josh and Tyler. I'd bring him in for a season.

    Only in my fantasies!

    In this scenario, I'd be willing to throw in the 011 #1 and Lorbek/Stanko. I'd love seeing Jason Thompson in a Pacers uni!!

    We couldn't get Taj unless we offered one of Danny, Darren, Hibbert or PG24. And ain't no way we're doing that. Honestly, those four are probably the only players we have that would interest a team like Chicago whatsoever.
