Some more ideas from Smith about Ellis, Camby and Jefferson you can find at the article.The Bulls could send the Magic Kirk Hinrich for Brandon Bass, J.J. Redick and Anthony Johnson. I don’t like giving up Hinrich, but the Bulls need that cap space. Hinrich would be great for Orlando, as he can play point guard and defend ones and twos. Though prearranged deals aren’t allowed, I’d release Redick to go back to Orlando as the Bulls don’t need him.
Just last week, Bass’ agent told the Orlando Sentinel they’re not asking for a trade but want to meet with management to discuss a role for the never-used Bass. The Magic go with Rashard Lewis and Ryan Anderson, leaving no room for Bass, whom the Bulls pursued in the 2005 draft and then again last summer. He’d be nice-long term insurance, as it would seem Tyrus Thomas is all but gone.
