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.
With Derrick Rose out for the rest of the year, and his future now a bold question mark, it’s time to break up the Bulls.
