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. Rose met the media on Thursday and discussed his knee, the Bulls and his future. He believes he has a lot left, but maintained that he’ll never recruit free agents... Read more »

Chicago Blackhawks: What Will They Do About Brent Seabrook?

Chicago Blackhawks: What Will They Do About Brent Seabrook?
The list of top defensemen heading towards restricted free agency is an impressive one, but was cut by one recently when the Los Angeles Kings locked up Jack Johnson with a seven-year extension. While Johnson’s cap number wasn’t outrageous ($4.36M), the term certainly got the attention of agents for players like Chicago’s Brent Seabrook, Atlanta’s... Read more »
