Derrick Rose: How I Would Break Up The Chicago Bulls

<strong>Denver</strong> receives SF Luol Deng and PG Marquis Teague<br>
<strong>Chicago</strong> receives SF Wilson Chandler and PG Andre Miller<br><br>
After the 2013-14 season, Miller has one year remaining at just over $4.6M, while Chandler has 2 more seasons under contract at roughly $6.7M and $7.1M, respectively. Miller would fill the need at point guard while Rose recovers (again), and Chandler is a younger, athletic DePaul grad who would be a nice fit on the Bulls roster. For Denver, adding Teague would give them a back-up to Ty Lawson with a significantly lower salary, and Deng would give them a strong defensive presence at the small forward. Currently, Denver is 8th in the Western Conference.

Chicago Bulls Are Chasing The Wrong Former Piston
Reports are that the Chicago Bulls will aggressively pursue former Detroit shooting guard Rip Hamilton in free agency. Unfortunately, he’s the wrong former Pistons guard.
