With the the emergence of Jimmy Butler (dare I actually use the term Jimmymergence), and the inevitable cheapness of the Front Office, it's safe to say that a trade may definitely happen before the deadline. Addressing Chicago's weaknesses, it's pretty obvious that we need consistency and upgrades with our scoring.
Below are a couple logical trades that would free up some cap space and add significant upgrades to Chicago's weaknesses.
It's no doubt that Denver has been somewhat struggling defensively, allowing more than 100 points a game. Scoring as of now is definitely not much of a problem, however it is hard to play uptempo offense and exceed on defense. Paired with Iguodala, Denver gets one of the league's best perimeter defenders, while giving up an excellent shooter in Danilo Gallinari, as well as some much needed bench depth for Chicago's frontcourt in Timofey Mozgov.
It has been often said that Arron Afflalo would be the perfect fit for Chicago's shooting guard woes. After all, he's an extremely solid perimeter defender who can knock down his fair share of shots (Averaging 16.7 ppg on .442 FG%). Besides his recent calf injury, Afflalo is playing a very solid 43 games so far this season. Trading Chicago's veteran presence in Rip Hamilton and Kirk Hinrich would free up a little cap space, and in return would bring in a solid, dependable balanced STARTING CALIBER player at the 2.
The Magic in return of course get two potent 3-point shooters as well as veteran experience. Not bad.
Also, with the return of Derrick Rose, I don't think it's a stretch to say two injury prone guards aren't in the least bit expendable.
