Do you think the Lakers should pursue a trade with the Chicago Bulls? Trade our expiring contracts and a pick: Farmar/Morrison/Powell/2nd rd pick for John Salmons and Tyrus Thomas...In John Salmons they will get a veteran player that can score and play a little bit of defense...In Thomas a 23 year old versatile player that has potential to be really good.

Bulls are not going to trade trash for bigger trash.

well either way we still come out on top cause Hinrich is a upgrade over Farmar...we need defense and shooting off the bench...but "heyman321" its not actually trash because they get expiring cash and a better back up to Rose.

Thomas has a qualifying offer they can just reject (same with Morrison), so if they move him, they'll want something of substance back. Farmar and Powell wont even give them 3 million in expiring contracts. A second round pick...probably the last or second to last one in the draft...no thanks. The Bulls have zero reason to pull that trade off. If they are really looking to shed cap next year (I'm not convinced they are ready to tank it yet), they'll move Hinrich, a bigger contract, for expirings.

The Lakers' expirings really aren't that enticing overall. I doubt they can fetch much.

No. Hinrich is better than Farmar. This trade hurts them more than it helps them. Trading Hinrich would make some sense, but they could probably get a better offer than what you mentioned.

That has got to be one of the most lopsided trades I've ever seen.

Agreed, Hinrich would be a starter on a lot of other teams while Farmar is a bench player. No way Bulls do that trade.

29.3 MPG

Jordon Farmar
6.8 PPG

IMO Kirk is overrated

Kirk has great defense, a pure shot, good decision making and passing not to mention he is 6'3 It would help more when playing against bigger guards like Billups, Evans, Deron, etc.... Thats a way that Lakers could upgrade(Not many with the team that they have now)
