Default RIP Gone?

The best scenario might be the popular rumor of trading Richard Hamilton to Denver for 7-foot-1 Russian Timofey Movgoz. But it's tough to tell whether this has a chance of actually happening. Bulls fans haven't seen much of Movgoz, who averaged 5.4 points and 4.1 rebounds a year ago. Maybe he could turn out to be a low-cost, long-range backup center. But one reason the Nuggets are shopping him is his impending restricted free agency. There's no telling what it might cost to keep him. Arlington Heights Daily Herald

In a heartbeat. Not because I'm one of those people that think Rip for anything is good, but Mozgov is going to be more valuable to this team going forward, and it's a worthy sacrifice. If Tim works out, he could(should) be a cheap contract.

Yeah, we need a backup C (Tim could possibly turn into a starter-caliber player going forward) and RIP is on his last leg. We really need a ball-handling/scoring 2.

I am all for this type of trade.

He brings much needed size off the bench. Nazr is just wasting a roster spot now. Movgoz still has some talent and he could become a poorer mans Asik. Depending on this foot issue with Noah and his history with flair ups it becomes that much more important to acquire depth in the frontcourt.

I'm sorry but we don't need Rip's "experience" anymore. Our guys have made playoff runs and know how to win in the playoffs. The Conference Finals is the bar we have to pass now. Besides I like the Butler and Belinelli combo off the bench come playoff time. Or Heinrich, depending on who starts at SG. Marco can create his own shot and is a better 3point threat and we all know what Jimmy brings. So all in all, I'm all for it.

I even read Nick Friedell talk about a possible move for Fesenko as a big we could acquire. I'd be down for that too. I'm sure Thibs can get the most out of any young 7 footer.

I'd be in favor of that as well. Mozgoz is extremely athletic for a guy his size and he could turn into a very good player being coached by Thibs.

We could use him more than we do RIP at this point. We'll see.
