The Chicago Bulls are reportedly heavily shopping Tyrus Thomas around the league, trying to see what kind of value they can get for him after the solid season he’s coming off of. It appears that they don’t see him fitting into their long-term plans as he’s too similar to Joakim Noah, and they aren’t interested in giving him a long-term deal that would put them over the luxury tax. It’s possible the Bulls look to package Thomas and Hinrich together and land a big time power forward.

Tyrus and Heinrich for Zach Randolph would be pretty interesting.

Or maybe Tyrus and Heinrich for Kaman since they've been interested in him for a while.. But I'd rather ship Z-bo out because if we ship Kaman out our only LEGIT center would be Camby.. And playing Z-bo at center with Griffin as power forward might be a little hard.
I'm a DIE HARD Clippers fan, and proud. I respect the Lakers and watch them every chance I get.

Respect me and I'll respect you. Don't respect me... we'll cross that bridge when we get there :)

From what I read, Kaman is the one they are looking to move though isn't it? I think the Clippers could get some good deals because a lot of teams could use a good big man.

Kaman to Bulls for Hinrich/Ty is definitely interesting.
Kaman to Washington for #5 pick/Etan Thomas?
Kaman to Portland for Outlaw/#24/?
Kaman to Atlanta for Marvin/Acie Law/#19?

Any of those teams would be a lot better with Kaman, and the Clippers would have some great players/picks as well. Hawks would be dangerous. Bibby?/JJ/Smoove/Horford/Kaman.
Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.

zach randolph is poisonous i don't think anyone really wants him other than san antonio because poppovich may feel like he can keep him in check

if i were the clippers i would trade randolph to san antonio for whatever expirings and move on

then i would trade marcus camby to dallas for more expirings

that way you guys can move on with no losers on the roster and gather up some more winners and team oriented guys

That would be interesting. Hinrich would be awesome here IMO, but he'd need to start and as long as Fish is here that isn't happening.

But add Sasha to the mix.

You all would miss all that LO does if he leaves. But Hinrich would fit right in, since he is a big, tough PG. and Thomas would give us some good youth. But I dont think we could afford them both.

tyrus is just as versatile as odom and a great shot blocker..but odom really is a natural for the triangle offense

Thomas doesnt seem much more then a rebounder and a defender. No way he is as versatile as LO, not even close.

odom can handle the ball very well, something tt cannot do. yes tt is a high-flier but odom just brings so much more to this team.

its not only tt, its also Kirk who paired with Kobe, Ariza would be a pretty ill defensive line up
Kobe's official reign of terror is about to get its jump off on.
