Now here's a smart trade for our rebuilding plans (Gooden for McDyess)

Here's my trade of the day (first trade for me in a few months I think too):

Bulls: trade 27 year old Drew Gooden to the Nuggets for old, unhappy Antonio McDyess....

What the Nuggets get: a solid PF and spot minutes Center who can give them more future cap relief flexibility if they desire, otherwise who can be a good PF to pair with Nene for the future.  Billups-Smith-Melo-Gooden-Nene is a very good starting 5....they part with the unhappy Dice and don't have to buy him out to watch him go back to Detroit or make the Celtics better on the Nuggets dime.

 

What the Bulls get:

Well we get a decent body, a tireless worker, and a good citizen to teach our guys.  But let's cut to the chase, why this trade to me is good is that it prepares us for teh Wade/Bosh free agent year when Hughes and Dice come off the books, leaving us $20M in those two alone of free agent money.  I think D. Wade would love to come our way and might be an option more so than Bosh even given the hometown thing, and mostly given Derrick Rose....

What do you think?  Makes us worse this year definately, but forces us to play Tyrus and Noah more....and might in 2 years be viewed as a huge win for us if we land a major free agent (it's very very doubtful we'd get Lebron even with our market unless Derrick Rose moves up to a Chris Paul stratosphere after next season--possible but might be too early still....
