donnie missed the boat with that deal with chicago.they offered thomas and james, and donnie should have asked for that first pick.
seems to me that lee is becoming that go to scorer that al was/is supposed to be for us, so why the getting is good, i think that al for ty thomas and that first round pick would have been a good deal.maybe they can salvage the season with al(probably not, but they don't have to know that), so its not a given its a lotto pick ; and its not like they've been total geniuses at selecting draft picks either(much like our franchise). i don't know how much better they would be after next year with that pick.at least they get to test drive a proven commodity.
knicks:we get something for al, which is better than nothing when it looks like lee is a lock to return to this team, and gallo is projected as the future pf.
bulls:the bulls get a versatile scoring pf which they desperately need to salvage this disastrous season.
