Derrick Rose is healthy… for now, and the Bulls are currently 5-3 after their first 8 games, but what will this season entail with Rose at the PG position and a solid surrounding cast of Jimmy Butler, Doug McDermott, Pau Gasol, and the semi-healthy Joakim Noah? This team, if healthy and playing well, can really compete with anybody in the East, but as we’ve all seen before this has been an issue, and by this, I mean Derrick Rose. So what should Chicago do going forward? Honestly, Derrick Rose isn’t the superstar he once was and his reliability is just too much of a negative for the Bulls if they are hoping to make a championship run. Hopefully, Rose stays healthy and plays pretty well this season to up his trade stock. Realistically though, I don’t see a trade going down this season for the Bulls, especially because of the lack of comparable point guards currently in the league that could fill Rose’s intended role. I think the best option for Chicago is to wait out this season with a solid performance from Rose and trade him in the offseason for picks and make it a mission to take the most offensively dynamic point guard the NCAA has to offer. The new acquisition of hypothetical draft picks due to the D-Rose trade will allow them to climb the draft board despite a probable playoff season. Once this high-flying, high-scoring, great facilitating, PG is acquired and Rose is out of the picture, then I think the Bulls will battle with the Cavs for the top of the East for years to come. As for a title… that may have to wait until Steph Curry cools off… the man is hot.
