Another Trade For The Hornets

In my obsessive quest to make the Hornets a championship team I’ve dreamed up another trade for Hornets general manager Jeff Bower:

The below picture is of course me channeling the genius to Jeff!

This plan involves our Hornets and the Chicago Bulls. These teams were wheeling and dealing 2 years ago. In 2006 The Hornets obtained Tyson Chandler for P.J. Brown and J.R. Smith.

This deal involves 4 players and 2 draft picks. 

Hornets Receive: SG Thabo Sefolosha, PF Drew Gooden, Bulls 2008 2nd Round Draft Pick (#39 Overall)

Bulls Receive: PG Mike James, C/PF Hilton Armstrong, 2008 Hornets 1st Round Draft Pick (27th overall)

As I understand the NBA trade rules this deal would work.

Pros for the Hornets:

In Sefolosha the Hornets gain a young, defensive minded shooting guard who’s stuck on the Bulls bench behind Larry Hughes and Ben Gordon.  In Gooden the Hornets obtain an aggressive big man capable of backing up David West and even Tyson Chandler. To get this deal done the Hornets may also have to give up their 1st round pick this year in exchange for the Bulls second round choice.  But moving from #27 to #39 is worth it if you can get a proven big man and 2-guard who could back up Morris Peterson immediately and emerge as a starter in a year or so. 

Pros for the Bulls:

In Armstrong the Bulls get a young, athletic big man capable of joining an already young front court that contains Joakim Noah and Tyrus Thomas. Armstrong could start or come off the bench for the Bulls at the 4 or 5 position.  In Mike James the Bulls get a back-up point guard who’ll make the transition of potential #1 overall pick Derick Rose easier.
