Taj Gibson- anyone, anyone?

And while Hinrich and Mike Dunleavy have been churning in the trade rumor mill for more than a month, Taj Gibson’s name is the one that is picking up, and could determine how serious the Bulls are in clearing space for a max contract to land the likes of a Carmelo Anthony or LeBron James.

According to a source, the Lakers, Wizards and Bobcats have each inquired about Gibson, but they were preliminary talks in which the Bulls did not like the return.

 

I like his game. Definitely someone who can help us win now, but would still not make this team a serious contender

I love Taj Gibson... He is a super efficient player especially at the rim.

 

The only problem is the Bobcats would truly need a small forward that can shoot from outside to be effective because Gibson isn't an outside shooter like McBob so they could just play him by guarding the block.

 

It would be interesting to see what we would offer. My guess would be Gibson and Dunleavy for Gordon and Adrien. The Cats probably are selling idea that Gordon and Adrien would give them $14 million extra dollars to go after LBJ in free agency.

Like Gibson but this would be a bad move. Gibson is not going to make us any better.

We need Stephenson on this team. He hasn't really broke out scoring wise. But this about to be a James harden type break out. If stays with Indiana it might not be as apparent bc all of the options around him. But if he was to sign here no doubt in myomd he would average 23-6-6

Now most of u will no agree. But I say go after him with max money which would be around idk 10-13 coming off his rookie contract I believe. I don't think Indiana would match or even could considering their cap position. Then of we added a legit pf this team would frogging scary.

Pg- Kemba
Sg- Stephenson
Sf- MKG
Pf- Taj Gibson maybe
C- Big AL

Now not only is that a good offensive team. That's one helluva defensive team. No doubt would be top 3 defensively if not higher.

But it's just a pipe dream bc there's no way we get Stephenson, but if we do get the chance we better strike.

I would have to agree that it's a pipe dream due to the fact that we would have to include Gordon in the deal for Gibson meaning we couldn't afford Stephenson but that is a really good starting line-up.

 

If MKG could develop into an offensive threat it would be almost identical to the line up that Indiana currently puts on the floor.

Well we have about 20 million combined in total this offseason to spend. I figured trading Gordon for Gibson would be the deal maybe with us throwing a pick in possibly. Gibson makes 8 million next year. I would take the remaining we have and throw it at Stephenson as fast as humanly possible. Then fill the bench by resigning our own players- sessions tollliver adrien and pargo. We will be over the cap big time but we will a pretty good team and possibly in contention to reach the east finals with Indiana losing key pieces and Miami getting older.

Lance would be that face of the franchise we could move forward with. I love his game. Him and kemba would get along being from Brooklyn and all. We have older guys for leadership but also plenty of young talent. And kemba is rising as well. Give him two scoring options and he might reside his assists to 8-9.

But like we both said fuckinh pipe dream lol

Lol hell no. Only like 10 players are worth giving up the tank for. And Taj is not one of them.

I do love his game but I will have to pass, The only way I would take him or Boozer is if it were this time next year and we didn't need to miss the playoffs.

So....

 

Gibson had 17 points (on 50% shooting), 10 rebounds, 3 blocks, and 1 steal tonight... on the other hand, our power forward had 11 points (on 44% shooting), 5 rebounds, 3 assists, and 1 steal...

 

Yeah we obviously don't need a player like Gibson on our team.

 

Face it, we're going to be at least the 8th seed whether you guys want to be or not. Why not try to be a better seed (at least the 6th seed) so we have a chance at possibly advancing to the second round and making our pick that we owe Chicago worse.

Actually not so likely, Charlotte has 3 games in hand over the next two teams and is only a half game up on Detroit. A full game up on NY. I wouldn't mind the team improving via trade by getting rid of Gordan and sessions, but I'd really like it to not amount to much for this season and still get 3 draft picks. lol
