Because he's a huge injury risk and still has great value

If they can't find a way to get Mayo, I think they go international.

I can't believe Richard Jefferson is a Buck now.

The Bucks have got a pretty good team there now with Redd and Jefferson.

Looks like the Nets are clearing house to prepare for The Bron.

Rose is going #1. ESPN confirmed it.

"Rose is the best fit for Chicago at this juncture."

Another guard is the best fit?

Maybe they'll package some guards in deals.

Considering the team has lost all confidence in Kirk Hinrich, yes...They dont need an undersized PF either

Plus.. if Rose lives up to the hype, guys like him don't come around too often.. he's a Steve Nash, or Jason Kidd in his prime.

If he lives up to the hype.

I'll take that over a mediocre Kirk Hinrich.

Bah! This is the same team that gave up Brand, Artest, Curry, Chandler, Aldridge, signed Ben Wallace and drafted Tyrus Thomas, and didn't pull the trigger for Gasol or KG. Their judgment in big guys doesn't impress me. If they're so hot for another PG, draft Beasley and package some of their other guards for a Baron Davis or a another high draft pick.

All of the Bulls PG's suck, and the have a bunch of PF's too, so they're looking at redundancy regardless.

As far as the Karl Malone/Jalen Rose award for worst suit...Hmm, that's a tough call this year. Brook Lopez was raised by a hippie, so I'll go with him.

Where's Beasley going to play? He's destined for the SF spot and they already have the aforementioned Thomas and Luol Deng.

And there's no way that any team would trade a marquee PG for any of their players. Hinrich's value is all but gone

How is he destined for SF? He's a combo forward who can easily score from the inside and outside. He'd actually provide a reliable option and open things up for their perimeter guys. I don't buy the argument that Heinrich, Gordon, etc. have suddenly lost talent. It's just so much easier to defend them when there's no balance on the floor. Rose will face the same obstacle.
