A Trade Idea from A Bulls fan

Joel Anthony has a Player Option for next season. I came up with a scenerio the bulls could follow that would net them a "Thibs Proof" roster that would have enough solid role players that Thibs could trust as to not over play certain guys. One of the players I wanted the Bulls to trade for is Joel Anthony. Here is how:

Bulls Trade - Tony Snell, Louis Amundson, and Mike James

Celtics Trade - Joel Anthony

Snell is a young player with good potential to be a 3&D guy. Honestly the bulls do like him a lot, but in my perceived Scenario he seemed like the most available to a trade. He would be useful for the rebuilding celtics as he is young, is on a rookie contract, and fills a spot on your roster.

The other two players are Non-Guaranteed for next season and thus can be waived by the Celtics and wiped from the books, hence saving the celtics money.

This is what the celtics would have on contract then


Plus you save an extra 2 million and puts your salary with that roster at ~48 million. with the cap being at around 62. That is 14 million to spend on a Top Free Agent, plus the Room Exception on a Solid Role Player.

You have some options here. You could actually even let Bradley walk, and try to sign someone like Rodney Stuckey and try to win over Marcin Gortat. Not including your two first rounders you can have this team


Plus 2 first round picks (Stuckey i would imagine would want a 8 million dollar contract, You could probably get gortat for the Room Exception which is a bit larger than the MLE (Close to 6 million this season).

Anyway thoughts on the trade (or anything else written here)?
