Chicago will enter the upcoming NBA season without Derrick Rose, as the All-Star point guard was injured during the playoffs and likely will miss most of the 2012-13 campaign, but the front office can still acquire talent to help when he does return, and adding an offensive player is a good move.
The Bulls were eliminated in the early rounds of the post-season the last two years, and a lack of offense was their downfall. The latest rumor from Tyler Conway has the team trading forward Luol Deng to Sacramento for Tyreke Evans. This move would hurt the team defensively, but definitely add a strong scoring punch and give the team a good chance of challenging in the Eastern Conference in the upcoming year.
Evans has averaged over 16 points during his three-year career, but the Kings keep changing the role they want from their young shooting guard, and it has hurt his development. Moving to a team like the Bulls could have Evans returning to his rookie form of 20 points, five rebounds, and five assists per night and give the Bulls an offensive weapon they have lacked since Rose took over the team.
Chicago has won the most regular season games in the NBA over the last two years, and even without Rose, this deal could keep them in the running for home-court advantage. The other big advantage and one that has to make Bulls fans excited, just think of the possibilities this team could have with Evans and Rose together in the back-court, it would become one of the top duos in the league and, with both players still young, a combination that could stick together for several years.
