10th pick included in that rumored deal. Not sure who Chicago targets at 10.
Trade Rumor: Kirk Hinrich to Indiana. 17th pick included - Indiana targeting Gordon Hayward at 17. Not sure what Ind gives in deal.
Could be T.J. Ford, Troy Murphy, Michael Dunleavy Jr, or Jeff Foster + Solomon Jones (or a variety of other possibilities).
The trade doesn't seem to make much sense from the Bulls perspective with Ford unless a followup trade is in the works. Ford saves them money next year which is really irrelevant. The same could be said of Dunleavy.
Murphy could be a fit for the roster this year, but it eats into our cap space making it somewhat unlikely.
Foster + Jones (or another small contract) could save us a tiny bit of money this year, but again doesn't seem to fit unless a follow up trade is in the works.
I guess the Bulls could be doing this just to move up in the draft, but it seems unlikely as the talent at #10 isn't so enticing to me.
