2010 cap space, Hinrich or Tyrus to be dealt?

ESPN ranks the teams with the most cap space in summer of 2010. Of course this is depending on what the cap will be. LINK

$53.6 million salary cap: $12.9 million of cap space
$50 million salary cap: $9.3 million of cap space

What it means: Sources with knowledge of the Bulls' thinking say Chicago wants to get a decent look at this group before deciding how to attack July 2010. There's also the perennial possibility that Kirk Hinrich gets moved, which could wind up creating more cap space than the Bulls currently envision depending on what they would have to take back in a trade involving Hinrich. Yet this much we know for sure: Chicago naturally believes it's set at the point with Derrick Rose and has one trusty big man for the future in Joakim Noah. Any eight-figure amount of cap room is going to help them keep adding quality to the core, although that is another best-case scenario that assumes restricted free agent Tyrus Thomas will have been traded elsewhere.

I'm thinking there is going to be a lot of turnover next season leaving the Bulls with Rose, Noah, Deng, HInrich,Taj, Johnson? After the loss to Boston it reminds you again what this thing is all about and thats building a contending title team around Rose. 

It was nice to beat San Antonio but the reality is most of this roster won't be here next season. I would prepare for more rebuilding woes. Right now maybe Rose and maybe Noah are your core of players to keep and the rest you just have to figure out how to move. 

Three players on this roster may need to be dealt. Tyrus, Hinrich and Deng. I know the latter seems impossible to move right now but it has to be worth it to try.
