Anthony, Stoudamire...both?

Among the threads that get posted when there is absolutely no news coming out of the Berto center (unless Noah gets caught with pot and brandy again), trades trades and more trades.  Very few of these involve proven all-stars, which I think most can agree, the Bulls need if their ever going to excel in the new Eastern Conference. I got excited  when I read TRue Hoops recent post, Teams in Turmoil.

Denver, Phoenix and other teams are predicted to disintegrate this season, perhaps providing Pax with a  face saving trade or two.

 We have a stable of young talent and tradeable contracts. Hinrich will need some burn in order to uphis market value, which is fine for teh first few months while Rose gets his feet wet. Deng's trade restriction prevents him from being traded before December 15th.  Gooden, Thomas, to lesser extent Noce have tradeable contracts. How about some combination of these, say, Thomas, Hinrich and a #1 pick for Amare Stoudamire. Or perhaps Deng and Gooden plus a #1 and/or the rights to Omer Asik (yeah yeah, acl tear, I know) for Anthony. I'd even be willing to take on K-Mart's max deal if the took Hughes off our hands. A team like this would instantly be a threat to top the east:

Rose/Gordon?

Gordon/Sefolosha/Hughes?

Anthony/ Nocioni

Stoudamire/Simmons/K-Mart?

Noah/Gray--Stoudamire splits time between 4 & 5

Of course, the only reason either Phoenix Denver or both do this is to rebuild, dump salary and pick up something in return. Phoenix gets a quality back up to Nash, an athletic forward to bring back that Matrix/STAT factor and Shaq gets more touches. Denver gets an expiring contract in Gooden, a scoring 3 to replace Anthony and both get a trade asset in a #1 pick or Asik. Either of these scenarios (both?) are likely sometime this season...Pax just needs to commit to making a deal...
