NBA Rumors: Bulls looking to deal Derrick Rose?

Derrick Rose is another example as the Chicago Bulls point guard has gone from one of the best players in the league, to just another injury prone star that will never live up to his potential, but everyone loves a good comeback story and if the latest rumors are true, Rose could become the savior the ‘purple and gold’ need to get back some respect.

Reports out of Chicago have the Bulls looking to deal the former All Star and despite a big money contract being involved with the 26-year-old, he could draw some interest from the Lakers.

Rose has played just 96 games over the last four seasons, but his age, couple with his talent, could make him the next star player to team with Kobe Bryant. Los Angeles has struggled at the point guard position over the last two years after Steve Nash couldn’t overcome his age or bad back.

Jeremy Lin has proved himself to be a good role player and rookie Jordan Clarkson is just too inconsistent. With the return of Bryant in the 2015-16 NBA season, general manager Mitch Kupchak will need to find more talent to put around the aging star and a solid point guard is the number one priority.

More good news for the franchise and fans, Julius Randle should also return to full strength, giving the team a good young player to build around as Kobe nears retirement.

The LA Lakers have always taken risks and while Rose hasn’t played much in recent years, his reward if healthy is a return to the playoffs and possibly a contender for another championship, both of which seem out of reach at this time for the players and their loyal following.
