As I mentioned before in the first slide, the Bulls do in fact need help at the point guard position. The lack of well-roundedness from the position was detrimental to the Bulls’ success at both ends of the floor.

Arturas Karnisovas has not given any hint to the fact that he would be interested in snagging Rose out of the free agency. However, this does not entirely support the fact that he wouldn’t pursue  Rose off of that fact, because he keeps quiet on his moves. Just look at the Nikola Vucevic trade.

On the other hand, we do know that Karnisovas was trying to make a deal at the trade deadline for Lonzo Ball, the young defensive-minded facilitator out of the Pelicans.

Ball, along with other options like Dennis Schroeder, Kyle Lowry, and even Spencer Dinwiddie seem most plausible for the Bulls this summer.

The important factors point guards need to have to be signed by the Bulls is the ability to facilitate, play rock-solid defense, and lead the offense smoothly. This is not to say that Derrick Rose does not possess these qualities, it just seems unlikely that the Bulls will pursue him this offseason.

Remember, none of the current big players in the front office were with the Bulls when Rose was here. That alone makes it evident that the current Bulls’ staff will not have much interest in him.
