Debating league-changing trades
Joe Johnson to the Bulls? Chris Paul to the Clippers? Our Insiders make cases for both.
The only thing Ric Bucher and Chris Broussard like to do more than report on the NBA is argue about the NBA. So we're continuing their One-on-One series into the offseason (and the lockout), today looking at potential game-changing trades to be made after the league resumes.
Which potential trade would do most to elevate a team to contender status or solidify its position at the top of the league?
BUCHER: A number of star-quality players could be available on the market once the NBA resolves its labor issues, providing a variety of teams the chance to elevate themselves with one bold move. For me, though, the Bulls are the team that most needs to add a piece to solidify itself as a threat to win a title. The guy they should go after is Joe Johnson.
To read Ric's full argument for why the Bulls should add Joe Johnson and get Chris' take on why a Chris Paul-to-the-Clippers trade should happen, become an ESPN Insider today.
