They finally give Rus a shooter. Could be a big deal down the line. The games they lose because people aren't making shots should go down a little.

In terms of being a shooter, I'd take Morrow over McDermott. In that respect, the Bulls picked up a decent backcourt player, but it's difficult to get too excited about the deal. Like I said in the Bulls thread, I'm just glad they didn't pull the trigger on any deals involving Butler. There's no way they would've made a shrewd trade.

Not particularly. I don't think it makes them any better, and they traded away one of their most solid contributors who has a long tenure with the team, and is a total pro. I guess it could be worse, but if that's the best you can say about a deal, it's not exactly a ringing endorsement.

I am ok with it.

Gibson is aging and expiring(contract). Joffrey is young and has pretty good skillset. He should be utilized more in CHI but I worry cause of Portis.

Payne probably becomes the best PG for the team right away.

No real loss here outside of emotional attachment for Taj/McDer being Bulls own 1st round drafts.

king joffrey may be just as bad as portis is on defense.

i do not understand its the bulls who are adding the 2nd round pick to the deal. okc got the best players in the deal

heading into the deadline the bulls beat guys were talking about trading gibson for a late 1st round pick and this deal happens :lol:
