Wolves trade for Hinrich??

I'm sure you all are dying for another lame trade proposal, so here goes. The Bulls supposedly want to trade a long term contract for expirings to guarantee they have money to make a max free agent offer this summer. The Wolves have expirings and should be able to take on some payroll next season. As several posters have lamented this season, they also seem to need the "sage" veteran who can work with the youngsters on the perimeter. This trade also fits what Kahn has been saying about not trading core players at the deadline.

The deal basically evolves around the Wolves getting Hinrich for Cardinal's EC and Sessions as a backup for Rose. I threw in Pecherov and Pavlovic in exchange for trade exceptions to get the Wolves some salary savings this season. I mainly did this to counter the fact that Hinrich is overpaid the next couple seasons, so with what the Wolves save this season, and perhaps getting the max $3 mil from the Bulls, the Hinrich contract looks a little better. I would also want the Bulls to throw in their 1st rounder this summer as a thank you for freeing up the cap space.

 

Anyhow, the Bulls remove a free agency hurdle. They also get a couple guys who can replace Hinrich this season (Cardinal and Sessions). I will add that this may throw them over the luxury tax, so will they pay that price to be able to lure Wade or Bosh???? I did a three team deal with Boston that would have the C's taking some salary from Chicago in exchange for Gomes, but I didn't include it as to not overcomplicate things.

 

The Wolves get that vet (and cash) who can really help out the next couple seasons, either with Flynn, Rubio, or Wall. They also get a 1st rounder that could be useful in a package deal this summer if the Wolves have their typical lottery "luck".
