The Chicago Bulls are a team in need of some help. Here are three reasons why they should reach out to the Celtics and attempt to trade for Terry Rozier.
The Chicago Bulls have had a rough start to the 2018-19 NBA season. They currently have a 3-9 record through their first 12 games which puts them in 4th place in the Central Division and 13th place in the Eastern Conference.
A lot of the Bulls’ struggles have been because of injuries to key players. Lauri Markkanen and Denzel Valentine are yet to touch the floor this season, and both Kris Dunn and Bobby Portis went down recently with a sprained MCL (right MCL sprain for Portis, left MCL sprain for Dunn) and are expected to miss a hefty amount of time.
Markkanen is a game-changer and should help the team in major ways when he returns from his elbow injury, but even with Markkanen, there are still some gaping holes in this Chicago Bulls roster.
When Dunn returns, if the Bulls were to go to a lineup featuring Kris Dunn at point guard and Jabari Parker at small forward, that lineup is going to have problems spacing the floor – something you can’t have in today’s NBA. While I don’t think Jabari will be around for the long haul, I’m starting to wonder if a change at the point guard position would be beneficial.
Don’t get me wrong, I like Dunn and I think he has a lot to offer, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t better options out there.
Terry Rozier seems to be (relatively) content in Boston as he’s transitioning from his role as a starter on a championship contender to his role as a reserve point guard helping out perennial All-Star Kyrie Irving. It’s clear that Rozier has the talent to be a starting point guard in this league, but will the Celtics deal him?
Here are three reasons why the Bulls should give Danny Ainge a call and attempt to trade for Terry Rozier.
