Bulls Interested In Trading Luol Deng for the #9 Pick?

120502-luol-deng-677_medium

As reported today by MySportsLegion.com on Twitter, The Bulls are shopping All-Star small forward Luol Deng for a top 10 pick, and have already called the Warriors about pick #7. Now, this is pretty interesting, because the Pistons have #9 pick in the 1st round, and also, are likely to be looking for a Small Forward like Deng in the Draft, or in free agency. They are very thing there. They're starter, is the aging Tayshaun Prince, who's play has been getting worse and worse over the past few years. Prince was once one of the top forwards in the league, but that time has clearly come and gone, and the Pistons need help there. Deng is a great forward for the Pistons, and would already heavily improve their team from the year before, to now. There's a low chance that the Pistons will find a player like Deng with their #9 pick, but it is likely that the Bulls will get who they want. Also, here a few other possible trades that would make sense for both teams, but the one mentioned above with Luol Deng clearly makes the most sense to me:

Pistons Get: Luol Deng, Plus Bulls 1st Round Pick (Unlikely)

Bulls Get: Pistons #9 Pick

Pistons Get: Taj Gibson PF, Bulls 1st Round Pick

Bulls Get: Pistons #9 Pick

Pistons Get: SG Ronnie Brewer, PF Taj Gibson

Bulls Get: Pistons #9 Pick


Summary:
It's a win-win for Both teams. The Bulls want a top 10 pick, and they will definitely get that, obviously, if they trade Deng for the Pistons #9 pick. And the Pistons desperately need help at SF, and Deng will automatically solve that problem, and fill that need. The Pistons would have depth at forward also, because then Tayshaun Prince would be coming off the bench, and he also would be great trade bait for teams looking for a good veteran forward with experience in the playoffs. The only question is, will Pistons GM Joe Dumars pull the trigger? I think he should, do you? And will the Bulls pull the trigger? That remains to be seen.
