Knicks - Bulls Trade


Why would either team make this trade?

Knicks Get:

  • Kirk Hinrich (4 years, $37.5 million left)
  • Andres Nocioni (5 years, $36.5 million left)
  • Thabo Sefolosha (3 years, $8.5 million - rookie contract)
  • 9th Pick in 2nd Round (39th Overall) -- Knicks do not own a 2nd rounder this year

Bulls Get:

  • Stephon Marbury (1 year, $20.8 million) -- Bulls would cut Marbury and would be out from under the contracts of Hinrich and Nocioni
  • 6th Overall Pick

The Bulls draft Rose with #1 and let's say.....O.J. Mayo who is currently going 6th on Draft Express.

Your Bulls (plus cap room):

  1. Luol Deng
  2. Derrick Rose
  3. Tyrus Thomas
  4. Drew Gooden
  5. Larry Hughes
  6. Joakim Noah
  7. OJ Mayo
  8. Ben Gordon

The Knicks would still need to make many other moves, but they get three hard-nosed players in return. Not sure if Hinrich can make it in New York, but perhaps D'Antoni can revive his career.
