Perhaps he'll be a future all star by how much he's been improving. Next you would get a 6'11" veteran forward in P.J. Brown who has plenty of playoff experience, but what makes him most attractive is his 8.5 million dollar expiring contract. With Tyrus Thomas the Grizzlies would get an athletic promising young player who's potential is sky high while his defense is already evident at this point in his first year. The 2007 first round pick that Memphis would receive would be originally New York's pick, it's sure to be a lottery pick, but somewhere in the top ten is still a possibility. It all depends on how the Knicks continue playing though. No matter what happens with the pick it will be a valuable one because the 07' draft is going to be very deep. Finally, the Grizzlies would receive Chicago's 2009 first round pick, to put the cherry on top of the deal.
I think that would be an equitable trade. Jerry might go for something like that. Losing Deng would be easier than losing Gordon. Noc would be a good replacement for Deng and not cost as much. With Pau the Bulls would have all the pieces to win the east for sure. It would be tough to lose Warrick since I think he has some major potential. Pau would get his wish to play for
a legitimate contender too.
