David Locke ‏@Lockedonsports
Per @kcjhoop former utah jazz player Kyle Korver has been traded to Atlanta



K.C Johnson ‏@KCJHoop
Pending passed physical, Bulls have traded Kyle Korver to Atlanta. Could be sign-and-trade w/Hinrich. Details soon at


K.C Johnson ‏@KCJHoop
The Korver trade to Atlanta means the Bulls won't have to pay him $500,000 had they waived his $5 million non-guaranteed contract.

Interesting indeed.

It's a money move so we get our Mini MLE back. We can get a shooter again.

Ok, i dont think you guys can get a better player than korver for 3mil. Certainly not lee or mayo for 3mil.

This trade was good for Miami.

This trade has no effect on miami. Bulls are not a threat to miami this year imo.

This was a great move for the Bulls.

Gives them another 3 million to work with this year.

They were going to lose Korver anyways, because they weren't going to pay him 5 million for this season with Derrick's season in limbo.

Hawks have a ridiculous amount of shooters. If we get Dwight:

PG: Harris/Lou Williams
SG: Anthony Morrow/Lou Williams/John Jenkins

PF: Josh Smith/Ivan Johnson
C: Dwight Howard/Zaza Pachulia

It's because he needs to be set up. He can't create his won shot so if nobody is there to take pressure off of him he's pretty much useless. Why do you think he wasn't nearly as good when Rose was out?

True but we need a guy that doesn't need to be set up we need a guy who can create his own shot and get other players open besides Rose...still haven't figured out why they STILL haven't signed anyone like that yet.

The Korver trade is via Minnesota into Atlanta's traded player exception, meaning Bulls get 2nd-round pick from Minny and save $500K.

what an awful trade lmao

unless the bulls get a tpe, that trade makes no sense. they lose there only 3 pt threat and spend their mle on hinrich


edit, bulls dont get a tpe. dumb trade

Bulls weren't going to resign him anyways.

Basically they got out of a $500K cap hit, and got a 2nd rounder out of it.

I don't see any problem with making a deal like that.

You lose your only 3pt threat and you are using your mle on hinrich. Why not just trade korver for hinrich and give hinrich a little more money, would have give you use of the mle too, unless this is just cost cutting which it seems like.

I'm wondering that too, but it could be a move that the Hawks didn't want to do, in order to not give the Bulls competitive advantage in the free agent market.

Since this was probably the best trade that the Bulls could do, they had no choice but to take it, or have to resign Korver to a 5 million dollar contract in a year they weren't realistically going to compete in.

But I agree, a s/t with Hinrich would've gave the Bulls a Full Mid-Level to aggressively go after another player.

The details haven't been finalized yet. If we get that TPE, we can very easily get Lee or Mayo (on an escalating deal, obviously). Plus, we get Hinrich.

Rose/Hinrich/Teague
Mayo/Rip/Butler
Deng/Butler
Boozer/Taj
Noah/Asik

That team could very easily hold the fort until Rose gets back. Mayo would obviously do most of the ball handling anyway and Rip becomes our sixth man. Our team is a hell of a lot better in this scenario. Even you should be able to admit that.

I think he took him and Horford out of that line-up assuming they are traded for Howard. Teague will start ahead of Harris and Lou if he is still on the team no doubt.

As of now:

Teague/Williams
Harris/Jenkins/Morrow
??????/Korver/Stevenson
Smith/Ivan/Scott
Horford/Zaza/Petro

will most likely be our starting line-up (with Lou Williams as the 6th man), though we are far from done this off-season. I see alot of people putting Morrow in the starting line-up, but I don't see how a Nets bench guy from last year will make a playoff team's starting line-up above guys like Lou Williams or Devin Harris.

We already have the best bench a Josh Smith team has seen. Just either need to make that "Big" trade (Dwight Howard?) or find a starting SF. Trading Joe Johnson and Marvin Williams for Lou Williams, Devin Harris, a more solid rotation and cap room for 2 Max players next year isn't a step back to me.

The details of this trade haven't been decided yet. The only thing we know at this point is that Korver is ATL bound. I'm hoping for that TPE so we can do a sign and trade for Mayo or Lee.

We replaced most of our bench guys with better players (Hinrich>Watson and Butler>Brewer) so there's that. We will most likely match Asik, so we hold onto him as well. I just want to nab one of the two guys I mentioned above. That's my dream. Then put Rip as our sixth man and that's a damn good team even without Rose. I think that team could compete for a ring this year, which is something I'd didn't think was possible.

It just anoying to keep hearing how the Bulls with the squad they have right now they would even stand a chance against Miami. Derrick Rose can bully any point gard in the league but when you put 6"8 by the name of LeBron on him then all of the sudden the hunter gets haunted.

Sick lineups Miami Has

Guards
Mairo/ Norris/ Wade/ Allen= too much for everyone to handle

Forwards
Bosh/James/ Lewis/ Haslem/Battier/ Miller/ Jones= still too much to handle

The Chicago Bulls announced today that the team has traded forward Kyle Korver to the Atlanta Hawks

K.C Johnson ‏@KCJHoop
Bulls officially announce Kyle Korver trade, reported Friday. Minny pulled out and Bulls get a trade exception.

Mike McGraw ‏@McGrawDHBulls

Finally some closure: Korver goes straight to ATL for cash. So the Bulls get $5 mil trade exception.

K.C Johnson ‏@KCJHoop
So Bulls trade Korver straight into Atlanta's traded player exception and get one of their own. Minny pulling out cost them 2nd rd pick.

Why does every bulls fan act so desperate with star players?

Seriously we are now caring about kevin love ? I get why .. But why get hopes up for a player that wont be available until 3 yrs from now ? Seriously ? Do u guys want to waste 2,3 or 4 yrs just begging for one player?

U guys use this "hes derrick roses best friend " thing as a reason why every year when a star player wants out or "why wouldnt he want to come to chicago, we would be a dynasty" as the reason why us

Dwight howard is friends with rose and he wants no part of chicago.. Dito for lebron who "loved roses game" and the city of chicago..

Can we just stop with this .. Seriously when that year comes up then we talk about it .. Its annoying how u guys do this or everystar and want to wait years for them only to fill up threads asking for the next one when one turns us down..

Can we build the right way ? Or actually give a fair trade ? And stop actin like chicago is where everyone wants to play..

Our biggest free agent was carlos boozer in the best freeagency ever.. I get the hope part but lets be realistic and go after what we need NOW to put us in the right spot..
