First, the link (I concede this is speculative, and that's why I didn't title this post in a way that suggested a trade has been floated)

Chicago is clearly in need of outside scoring with Rip's nagging injuries and Deng's inconsistency. Kevin Martin is one of the most consistent outside scorers in the league.
We are in need of a long-term solution at the C position (arguably the hardest position on the court to fill with quality talent). Noah is one of the best centers in the league, aside from Howard, M. Gasol and Bynum. He is good for an efficient double-double, and is an incredible defender who boxes out well, blocks shot and doesn't get bullied on the block.
While I would hate to see Kevin Martin go (I have his jersey, after all), we have a backup with starting experience in Lee (who is also a better defender and someone the team trusted to start, evidenced by the nixed Gasol trade) and shooting guards are a dime a dozen in the league.
Would you guys do that swap? I saw a similar discussion on clutchfans, and not surprisingly, people are balking at the idea.
Side-note: this kind of move would mesh nicely with acquiring Wilson Chandler through FA (smiley-face)
