    Was a 2nd round they had gotten to take Poindexter. Eh I'm just happy they got a decent 1st back

    Demps fucking played GarPax. The Bulls just don't give a shit about 2nd round picks, do they?

    Every basketball media member: Pretty good deal for the Bulls
    Sabr: Bulls got played because they gave up a 2nd round pick!

    On Tuesday, this deal did not include a 2nd. Today it does. How is that not getting played?

    Tony Allen and Jameer Nelson weren't part of the deal either probably because only the framework of Niko for Asik and a first round pick were reported. The rest is just matching salaries and throw ins. The Bulls also have the option to swap 2nd round picks in 2 or 3 years. Second round picks are nice to have but they shouldn't be deal breakers.

    Bulls trading away a second round pick for $3.5 million dollars was stupid because in a rebuild you need cheap young talent and they weren't getting an asset back in return, just cash which means nothing to anyone except Reinsdorf. The Bulls throwing in a second round pick to get a potential lottery pick is not dumb.

    Bulls could have gotten AD and SABR still would be pissed.

    Looks like the Bulls gave up the 2nd round pick so the Pelicans would pick up Niko's option, which he wouldn't approve the trade unless it happened.

    That's a steep price to pay for pick 17.

    The Bulls didn't gave. They couldn't trade Niko without his permission because he has the team option.

    If Pelicans don't pick up the option, Niko vetoes the trade.

    Bulls throw in 2nd round pick so Pelicans do pick up the option.

    One can conclude the trade happened because the Bulls threw in the 2nd round pick.

    Yes you can say the Bulls don't value 2nd round picks. That's a different discussion. But the more important thing is you don't pass on the chance of trading a rotational player who wants out for a top 15 pick what people believe is a good draft class because you want to keep a 2nd round pick.

    No it's not, you are an idiot if you believe that. Niko doesn't want to be here. He's also a rotational piece at best on a good team. With Boogie out the Pelicans are going to be a fight to remain in the playoffs so it can be more than just the 17th pick.

    It also temporarily weakens the Bulls so the tank game gets stronger.

    And I can understand why NO wants to mortgage the future to make the playoffs this year. Boogie is a FA, you need to commit to winning and playoff appearances to convince AD to stay.

    I don't see how the Pelicans miss the playoffs. Looking at the teams below them in the west, all of those teams are in full-on tank mode at this point.

    The Clippers got weaker but they did get 2 starter level players back in the Blake deal. Unless they trade Jordan and Lou Williams, I wouldn't call it a full tank. The Jazz are the only other realistic team that could catch New Orleans and they may trade Hood or Favors but it's because they are expiring and want an asset back.

    Niko had negative value to the Bulls and was benched pending a trade.

    This is a pretty damn good return for a negative value, benched player.

    I'm sure he'll get a nice video tribute upon his return.

    Bulls have the 6th worst record in the NBA now. Pelicans holding onto a playoff spot by a half game.

    Portis also had 18-14 in a nice tank loss

    Nelson traded to the Pistons for some guy named Willie Reed.

    What clearance jersey should I get for my BULLS game up in Baghdad Detroit?

    Red Rose or Red Butler?

    The Rose one comes with crutches.

    Buils "lose" in a tanking matchup vs Orlando yesterday. Too many shitty teams trying to tank has put the Bulls back in 8th of the race. Totally going to end up with a team of a bunch of solid guys that develop and get a 4 seed and maybe win a playoff series or 2 like the Baby Bulls.

    If this keeps up, their only chance is to hit on a Giannis-type.

    The chances of that are extremely remote.

    Pelicans only half game up on the Clippers for the last playoff spot, and only 1.5 games up on the Jazz who have won 11 straight. Bulls may get 2 lottery picks this year!
