Am I the only one here that thinks this is a solid deal for Chicago.

They both suck on defense, Bargs can also drop points like Boozer. He's not a better rebounder but he can stretch the floor. He's also cheaper. And I think Thibs defensive schemes can hide Bargs deficiencies, and he's not a bad post defender.

I like this for the Bulls.

Nope I'm there with you. I believe I am the only one who does not think Bargs is hot garbage. He certainly is not a star (or worthy of the #1 pick) but I think he can be a very solid 2nd or 3rd option.

Also, Toronto was forcing him to play center for a lot of his time there. He is not a center, but rather a PF. Put him next to a defensive minded center who rebounds like Noah and I think it's a great fit.

When Rose comes back, imagine pick-n-pop with him and Bargs

Not sure if I would do this, but it would probably make Boston more of a contender in the short term (though I'm not sure enough of one that I would do the trade)

TOR - Green, Bass
CHI - Bargs, Barbosa, Collins
BOS - Boozer, Belinelli, Lucas, CHI 1st (top 20 protected)
2014 Pick 2 Draft 18th pick of 20
Sacramento Kings
Starters - Isaiah Thomas, Eric Gordon, Jimmy Butler, Dirk Nowitzki, Demarcus Cousins
Bench - Kendall Marshall, Michael Carter-Williams, Vince Carter, Wesley Johnson, Marcus Morris, Miles Plumlee, Nerlens Noel

Why? Seems like a pointless trade for both teams.

I agree. I don't really get it for either team. Treading water.

I think Jeff Green is more important to beating Miami and New York than Boozer is.

I don't think Boozer gives the team an added advantage against Brooklyn either. Maybe Indiana with David West, Booz would be useful there.

But overall, I don't think this trade would improve Boston's chances of making it out of the East.

To say that Bargnani is "not a better rebounder" is the understatement of the year.

Bargnani has consistently posted single-digit(!) TRRs over his career, while playing PF and even C for the Raptors. In his worst year, Boozer had a TRR of 16.

Chicago would be crazy to give up any sort of assets for Bargnani. I know Boozer is not a world-beater, but starting Bargnani instead is just madness.

Bargnani is the worst rebounder in the league. I'm not even trying to joke with you. He's worse than E'Twaun Moore or Isaiah Thomas. He's ridiculously bad.

This would likely put the Bulls out of contention until the 2016-17 season.

In December, you probably could have gotten several people here to agree to trading Green and Bass for Boozer without getting anything else in return.

Beat writer Doug Smith says the Raptors have "no interest" in Carlos Boozer. The Raptors' front office appears to have their heads on straight here. Boozer is a 31-year-old defensive liability that is owed $15.3 million next season and $16.8 million in 2014/15. Meanwhile, Andrea Bargnani is due $10.7 million next season and $11.5 million in 2014/15. Inexpensive workhorse Amir Johnson is a better fit than either. The Raptors are on the hunt for a better, more cost-effective Bargnani deal.
