Chicago is dumb if they traded the Booz.

They might need a 3rd team to dump Kleiza on.

Who would be the last asset involved?

if that happens, the Bulls lose

Boozer may have lost a step or two, but he's still a better rebounder and more aggressive player than Bargnani is right now

Totally one of their best players..3rd or 4th maybe! Bargnani would be their 13th man!

I think the Bulls would be a the clear loser in that trade. Bargs sucks.

  • We may as well put Tyrion in at center.
Bargs is one of the better offensive big men in the league. He can shoot the 3 and is probably top 2 in creating his own shot off the dribble (for bigs).


Having him coming off the bench would really help their scoring. Boozer isn't the greatest defender, and who knows? Bargs is a decent shot blocker; he does suck at everything else defensively/rebounding though.

It is a good fit for the Bulls.
I like Marcus Smart

If he is so good offensively, why are his shooting percentages so terrible? He isn't even that good from 3, he hovers at just slightly over the league average. From everywhere else on the floor, he is well below the league average.

Bargs overall stats this year are pretty terrible.

But offensively even with his meh TS% he has a bigger offensive impact than his efficiency would indicate. Just stretching the floor from the C position and pulling a big man out of help defense opens things up tremendously for others. KG does the same with his jump shot and passing.

Of course Bargs rebounds like a SF and defends like Leon Powe on sleeping pills. That's the real problem with him.

I actually am one of the few who thinks this could be a great trade for the bulls. Their offense will become much more dynamic, their defense gains more potential ( barge is a mobile 7fter just needs to be coached up). Rebounding is the only spot that I think this really hurts them.

I also think this would be a good trade for Chicago now. Boozer is a poor defender, may as well consider that position a defensive loss and get a PF who's offense compliments Noah's much better. Bargniani is still young too and with the right coach, can develop.

The Toronto Raptors were told last week that they can accept the Andrea Bargnani and John Lucas III trade for Carlos Boozer and Nate Robinson from the Chicago Bulls whenever they wanted it, according to league sources.
That deal could take the Bulls below the luxury-tax threshold.
The Bulls would like to avoid paying tax, especially if Derrick Rose is not able to play this season.

Intersting. I know the Raptors want to get rid of Bargnani but why would they want to take on Boozer at his money?

I guess Bargnani might work in Chicago? Open up play time for Gibson and Bargs defense alongside Noah would work out well but they wouldnt have any low post presence. Not sure how I feel about this is I was a bulls fan.
