Analysts believe that it would be in the best interest of the Bulls to trade away Derrick Rose with someone that is much younger and athletic.

Rose could still be a hometown hero and still has a lot of fans on board. But Rose doesn’t seem to have much trade value today in the NBA. What the Bulls really need today is a point guard who can really shoot  from behind the arc and can really be play defense inside and out.

Rose could still be a hometown hero, but the Bulls need to win next season and be competitive in the Eastern Conference. Adding Nerlens Noel via trade and making some good free agents pick could be a good idea for the Bulls.

Philadelphia has plenty of young players on board, so trading Noel would be not a big deal for them. Unfortunately, most of the Sixers’ young talents are power forwards and centers, and that’s the whole reason why they are looking for a point guard.

In one proposed trade scenario, the Philadelphia would receive Derrick Rose, Mike Dunleavy, Taj Gibson and plenty of pick in the 2016 NBA Draft. In return, The Chicago Bulls would end up getting Nerlens Noel.

In addition, the trade could also lead to the Chicago Bulls freeing up around $30 million in cap space and allow them to be major players in free agency this summer. Noel could be the guy the Chicago Bulls are looking for.

Currently, the Bulls have two keys free agents in Gasol and Noah, which now heading into the summer market. Both players have been an essential part of the bulls’ defense in the past two seasons, but a disappointing season that saw the Bulls missing the NBA playoffs. As the teams’ backup plan to what has been the obvious expectations, the team could forge a trade involving Derrick Rose.
