Week In Review: 6/16/14 – 6/22/14

Tough break for Kansas center Joel Embiid.  The center, viewed by some as the best talent in the 2014 draft, broke the navicular bone in his right foot and while he could be healed up in as little as four months, it seems a lot less likely that he’ll be the No. 1 overall pick in this week’s draft.  There should be plenty of fallout from the news and the Magic are apparently eyeing a trade up to the top two to make sure they can land Dante Exum.  Here’s more from the week that was..

      Well, he likes Thibs, too, but you’re right — the Bulls would be a lot less attractive without Noah. But if they gave him up, they’d probably demand someone equally if not more talented in return.

        If you’re going to do that why even bother trading him. There aren’t a lot of centers better than Noah in the league any more. Trading him for someone of equal value makes no sense and why would anyone give them someone better than Noah for just Noah?

          Well, value is always in the eye of the beholder, and a team may find Noah even more valuable than the Bulls do. But the notion that any scenario in which he’s traded this summer comes into play is a real long shot, so I don’t think the Bulls are putting too much thought toward it.
