Central Notes: Bulls, Gasol, Cavs, Jones

It wasn’t pretty, but the Pacers topped the Bulls last night 80-76 to get back to the .500 mark.  The Bulls kept David West in check but Paul George more than picked up the slack with 34 points, 9 rebounds, three steals, two assists, and two blocks.  Here’s more out of the Central..

  • In an interview on 95.7 The Game, Chris Sheridan of SheridanHoops.com explained how the Bulls have the goods to land Pau Gasol if they want to.  Sheridan suggests a three-way deal in which the Hornets send Ryan Anderson to the Lakers, and the Bulls send Taj Gibson, a future No. 1 draft pick owed to them by the Bobcats, plus a little more to New Orleans. That little more could include the rights to Real Madrid forward Nikola Mirotic.
  • Despite the optimism surrounding recent D-League callup Kevin Jones, Sam Amico of FOXSportsOhio.com doesn’t see him making a major impact with the Cavaliers this season.  In five D-League games, averaged 23.6 PPG and 12.6 RPG in 41 minutes per game.  The forward out of West Virginia was projected to be an early- to-mid second-round pick in the 2012 draft but plummeted after an injury forced him to miss workouts.  
  • The Cavs are hurting without Kyrie Irving in the lineup, but veteran wing C.J. Miles notes that the situation is giving bench players a chance to prove their worth in the league, writes Lang Greene of HoopsWorldJeremy Pargo and Donald Sloan have seen more minutes in Irving’s absence but the Cavs are struggling at 4-14.

    That’s a horrible deal for the Bulls. Taj, Bobcats #1, AND Mirotic for an aging, injured center? No freaking way.

  2. Id like to hear sheridans reason why the bulls would trade taj, the bobcats pick, and mirotic for gasol. Thats 3 young up and coming players for an old declining gasol. plus since sheridan didnt mention anything about moving boozer that gives you 3 starting bigs for 2 spots. i could of made a better proposal and i dont get paid to write articles

    If the Bulls make that move, or a similar move, I’m done with them until GarPax is gone. That would be beyond terrible.

    Lakers: “Hey, we’ve got a 32 year-old PF we’ve been trying to trade for two years who has no knees. What can we get for him?”

    Bulls: “hmm…top 5 pick, top 5 player in Europe, top 5 6th man?”

    Pelicans: “LOL do it!”

    Lakers: “oh sh*t they’re serious? wow. lol!”

    “We’re excited to pair up Gasol with Boozer, so we have two PFs who
    can’t dunk and don’t play defense, and who cost about $40M/year

    Bulls fans: “wtf”
