To address another part of this deal: I hope the bulls hold onto eisley. Yes i said it! And I will tell you why. Eisley is set to make 1.2 million, which is basically the league minimum for a vet. He has been to a number of nba finals with the jazz and has a lot of playoff experience. We need a third string point guard behind heinrich and duhan.

I think this is a foregone conclusion already - Eisley will be waived.

Gordon can play some at the point.

The reason for the second round picks could have been pure salary cap and money....They have contract extensions coming up for there young guys and already have the knicks first round pick in '07 so they might not have wanted to add another salary....

First round picks salary is guaranteed whereas a second rounder is not...so if they have no cap space they can pick up a guy in the second round and have him play overseas and not pay him.


Next years draft should be very deep.  A second round pick is may be as good or better next year than a mid to late pick this year.  

Only time will tell if this was a good deal or not.
