The dynamic point guard of Chicago Bulls, Derrick Rose, is riding high on the NBA trade block these days. As the NBA playoff finals are coming to an end, the NBA Draft rumors are speeding up with the analysts making speculations on the players exchange and team rebuilding for the new season. Chicago Bulls is looked up for a possibility of trading Jimmy Butler and Derrick Rose, but the team prefers to move Rose in the first place. And Minnesota Timberwolves are looking forward to break a deal with Bulls.
According to Fansided, Chicago Bulls are open for making a trade this season, and it looks like Derrick Rose has a good chance to leave Bulls in the upcoming draft. Even the team is looking forward to trade Rose but not Jimmy Butler as of now. Since the team and Rose are not going along together very well, the team may not consider signing him in for another heavy deal.
It is also said that Rose has been demanding a raise in salary from quite some time for his next contract, as mentioned by Basketball Insiders. Bulls have already hinted at making some changes in the team and is participating actively in the trade. So exchanging players against Butler or Rose should not come as a surprise for Bulls’ fans.
Derrick Rose is a dynamic player and is only 27 years old. He has got some good experience and has many years left to play the basketball game despite being injured for some time. He has scored 16.4 points, 4.7 assists and 3.4 rebounds per game in 2015-2016.
Nevertheless, trading Derrick Rose is a win-win deal for Chicago Bulls this time, and the team can focus on rebuilding with new players. Bulls can put the money somewhere else rather than ballooning Roses’ salary cap.
