Heard it on Max Kellerman's show.

I would guess the Bulls are willing to take on two not so great contracts due to them making that trade for John Salmons and Brad Miller. I would say it is a good deal by Walsh if it goes through.

That deal is done as well as Chris Wilcox coming to the Knicks for Malik Rose

The official deal with the Bulls is actually Jerome James, Tim Thomas and Anthony Roberson for Larry Hughes.

edit: i'm hearing just James and Thomas but Chad Ford says Roberson is in as well I guess it doesn't matter much but we'll see if it ends up 3 for 1 or 2 for 1

Again two bad contracts for just one bad contract. Hughes is a rich man's Jared Jeffries, good defensively but a bit lost on offense, but while TT has always been a good supporting player, James is a total dog. The combined contracts of James and TT are slightly less than what Hughes is paid but their contract length is the same. Upside is you have one less body on the roster.

Wilcox makes less than Malik Rose but he is younger with more potential and athleticism. Seeing how he does in D'Antonai's system is worth a shot.

I am in no way a Hughes fan but we probably got the better deal. We didn't need Thomas and Jerome James is well Jerome James.
Wilcox is a good sub and Rose like James just takes up space.

Walsh will send Roberson if the Bulls agree to send him one of Chicago's famous Sausage and Pepper hero's that Donnie loves. They declined at first but eventually gave in.

Reports are that Donnie's more excited about the sandwich than Larry Hughes.

Yeah, and if you're using the "He's 19" logic, then I guess the best report a scout could give us is:


"I have no idea. He's a teenager. He may go through 5 arm surgeries between now and his 30th birthday. He may add a pitch. He may lose a pitch. He may put on 30 lbs and add velocity. He may put on 50 lbs and eat his way out of the league. I literally have no idea what he is going to be."

But thats not what these guys are paid to do, nor what we are looking for them to do, right?

I would judge Donnie's judgment on that front. The man has seen his share of sandwiches.

anything that ends the jerome james era and still keep cap space in 2010 is a good deal

malik rose was also a waste of money

wilcox and hughes on the hand will at least give you two live bodies.

and i think wilcox is a bit of an underrated player.

walsh still needs to dump jeffries and curry ... once he does that the purging of waste will be complete.

i would like qrich dumped also but at least his contract will be up after next year

Do you remember when Nate and Lee were drafted and so many people on here said that they weren't good picks (or trades) and that they would not be good in the nba. I think that draft was before the big crash.
