06:39 PM ET 06.27 | The NBA Draft is tonight which means plenty of teams around the NBA will be scrambling for lat minute trade offers to try and land pieces that they think can help them be contenders in 2013-14. One of those teams is the Portland Trailblazers who have been rumored to be shopping LaMarcus Aldridge around the league. From a rumored trade with the Cavaliers to a minor rumor circulating about a swap with the Clippers, the Blazers are clearly trying to see what they can get for Aldridge that will help them build around star guard Damian Lillard. One of those teams that could trade for him is the Chicago Bulls who have been thrust into the rumor mill more than once in the last week and now find themselves right back in the thick of a rumor that could shake things up. According to the Daily Herald in Chicago, Aldridge wants out of Portland and the Chicago Bulls are at the top of his wish list.

Da Bulls should unload Boozer for LaMarcus quick, fast and in a hurry.

So the Blazers are going to "build around" a 6'3" point guard?

Yeah......right......and what do you think it'll cost the Bulls to get Aldridge?

Hint.......I bet the Blazers won't want Boozer and I bet they WILL want Deng and a draft choice or two.

So at the end of the day, the Bulls lose Boozer AND Deng and a chunk of their of their future to get Aldridge.......NO THANKS!!

If I'm Portland any trade that doesn't start with D. Rose, Jimmy Butler I'm not interested in. I wouldn't just give him away because he's unhappy. Value for Value and not some aging piece just because you're trying unload salary. I LaMracus should be a little patient. Not like the bulls get him the automatically be part of the 2014 Championship equation..

Great point! You really don't need a crystal ball to see this one, the Blazers are gonna want more than an aging vet when getting rid of a stud in his prime!

You're losing Deng anyways. Mind as well trade him for Aldridge if they want him. Weren't they shopping Deng around?

Mecca would love to trade BG right away for LA. Could work for both teams.

The Cavs need to get that trade over with

June 28, 2013  05:21 PM ET

Which "aging vet" are you guys talking about......Boozer?

You can't be talking about Deng......because he's only 3 months older than Aldridge.

Problem is......they also want Noah.

Yeah......that's right......Portland wants two all-stars for one. And then, the Bulls will still need to deal with Boozer since he and Aldridge play the same position.....and the Bulls will still need to find a average to above average center.....which Boozer probably wouldn't bring in a trade.

In other words, to aquire Aldridge, the Bulls will have their core gutted without even waiting to see what they can do with D.Rose back at the point.

THAT would be dumber than a bag of rocks!

Bulls' best course of action.....begine to assemble a decent 'Bench Mob' to go with their current core and 'sally forth' for one more season pretty much as they are.
