Rose is a very good player but not that great a point guard. For me if youre a good pg you should never hear that the rest of your teAm stinks. Most, including me, believe the bulls are a shooting guard away from the title. Having said that who do you think is best fitted for rose.

for me its James Harden, he is a very good shooter and playmaker. He seems more in control of an offense than most pg.
What you guys think?

Note: pls be realistic about your choice.

Joe Johnson or Manu Ginobili are great passers at the SG position who can play off Rose & shoot.

I thought about jj too but he is too expensive and improbable because of the contract. Im thinking like an acquistion thats probable.

Harden leaving OKC anytime soon is highly improbable.

A guy like Ray Allen would function there well because Rose always draws the entire defense, and Ray would find open threes even more than he does now.

Maybe but it not like hes untouchable. In actuality he is the sixth man although he will probably be a starter next season.
I said "probable" to eliminate posts such as kobe and wade.

Joe Johnson would be pretty damn ridiculous......others of different caliber were mentioned like OJ Mayo and Ray Allen.........I think anyone who is versatile enough to guard 1s and 2s while being able to spread the floor from 3 as well as create their own shots off the dribble fits perfect.....tough skillset to match but there is a few out there.....

What's ironic is that the Bulls could have potentially signed JJ last offseason, I mean they probably tried, but he was an FA and they did have the cap space. Imagine if they'd signed him instead of Boozer:

Rose/Watson
JJ/Brewer/Bogans
Deng/Korver
Gibson/Kurt Thomas
Noah/Asik

Not saying they missed an opportunity, because he chose to stay in Atlanta, but DAMN. That team would be NASTY.

the only way i see a scoring pg who is more of a shooting guard type of player like rose ever winning a ring is if he gets a passing/defensive good shooter type of shooting guard who is HIGHLY capable of playing the point.. acquiring that type of sg on the bulls would kind of allow a position/role swap

manu or joe johnson

thats what chicago needs.

out of the realistic candidates, the best compliment for Rose and the Bulls would be J.R. Smith, O.J. Mayo and Nick Young in that order.

Out of unrealistic candidates I'd like to see James Harden or Eric Gordon on our team. I'd cream my pants.

Derrick Rose is a very good point guard btw, I don't know why people say he's a bad PG. He's just not as good as CP3 or D-Will at creating yet but that doesn't make him bad. He'd be an asset on any team in the league, deep down you know you want him on your team.

08-06-2011, 11:27 AM
Monta Ellis and Derrick Rose in the same back court wouldn't be ideal. Two high volume shooters/scorers that don't compliment each other's game.

Ray, Manu, Martin etc. would all be great. Guys who can score from anywhere, work off-the-ball, and can play make.

If Tom Thibs can teach J.R. Smith how to play better defense and if he learns how to stay out of trouble, I'd say him. Athletic, can shoot the lights out, young, can do it all.

If they didn't, JJ would've gotten ~14 million and the Bulls had the cap space for Boozer as well.

Ray Allen or Rip Hamilton.. neither is untouchable and Detroit would love to get rid of Rip so he could be had for scraps.

Anyway both those guys would compliment Rose very well. They dont need the ball to be effective and can create their own shots in most situations. Both are veterans that can help lead that young Bulls team so less pressure on Rose's young shoulders. Both have championship experience and both hit clutch shots. They would also fir right in with Thibs since Ray played for him already and Rip is no stranger to an elite defensive system.

after watching the bulls Hawks series, I would want JJ no where near rose. JJ is a guy who is honestly ( Im not trying to bait ) an offense killer, he will sit there with the ball in his hands way to long, and not make a move, then he will throw up a rediculously bad contested shot, and somehow shoot 50+%. with that said, he has tallent, but thats not the type of basketball I want to play.

With that said, this is why I would love a player like OJ mayo. good shooter, good passer, has shown ability to create for others. he may never live up to his hype, but he has already proven he can score 15+ a night.

Fair enough, I just went on his past years mainly, and not that series... I believed he averaged about 6 assists per game a few years back, but you're a bulls fan, so you would know what's more important to the team. Also, no matter how I feel about Johnson, there's no way in hell he should be payed the amount that he is lol, worst contract in the game :facepalm:

I didn't list Mayo, cause I think he would be untouchable for the Bulls (unless the grizz had given up on him and just want to rid him from the team). I think they'll at least give him another year, and if it doesn't work they'll try a S &T (assuming they are still around as well as restricted free agency).

Ray Allen might be available, but that depends if Boston decides to start the rebuild when everyone is a year older, or still go for that one last push. It could be an effective stop gap.. so Rose can improve into more of an all-around point-guard over a scoring PG.. With Allen on the side, the assist total would improve... maybe he gets more faith in his teammates, rather than feel he has to chuck the ball up as much as possible cause the people around him will let him down (I just remember game 4. in the Heat/Bulls series where he was just plain bad, like 8/27 from the field).

Ray Allen would be a great fit. He'll spot up like you said, plus he'll bring championship experience, leadership and has proven himself under coach Thibs.


If the Bulls fans want OJ Mayo, they should aim higher and go for Ellis.

Ellis would be a terrible fit in my opinion. The perfect guy would be one who excels off the ball and on the defensive end; Ellis doesn't fill those roles.

The absolute perfect guy for them, in my opinion, would be Arron Afflalo. He does play excellent defense and can spot up. Another guy would be Thabo Sefolosha.

I just look for guys who can play a similar style to guys like John Paxson, Steve Kerr, young Derek Fisher etc. Guys that played next to a dominant back-court player and concentrated on filling in on the defensive end and providing the option for kick-out passes for their SGs (I know Rose isn't a SG, but he plays a very similar style to Jordan and Kobe).

I agree OJ Mayo would be a great fit for him I'd also think Courtney Lee woulda been a good fit for him when Chicago tried goin after him this yr he's a good shooter and plays good defense Ray Allen would be good also.

So I made a quick skim through the thread (didn't read each and every post in their entirety) and I didn't see a single mention of the man who is IMO the PERFECT back-court partner for Derrick Rose.

Brandon Roy (when healthy of course)

He has the ability to control the flow of the game, create his own shot and create shots for others better than damn near every SG in the game today. Roy would allow Rose to play off the ball more and focus on his scoring when he's in a good rhythm or when his team needs him to.

Though Rose is a PG he is a scoring PG and whether people want to admit it or not he played a lot of combo guard last season. On many occasions Rose was burdened of playing the role of both PG and SG on offense. He'd bring the ball up the court, set the play, pass the ball off run around screens and eventually end up with the ball back in his had again and take the shot.

With a player of Brandon Roy's skill set next to him he'll be able to play much more comfortably than he did last season.

So many people are talking about spot up shooters (the already had Bogans and Korver and those two didn't work) or good defensive wings with little to offer on offense (Ronny Brewer is about as good you could get). This would just mean that they make a slight upgrade in their starting lineup. This does not address the fact that no matter who Rose play's alongside until he is relied upon to create less shots for his teammates and has more created for him the Bulls are not figured to improve very much in the one area in which they were hurt the most (the SG position).

Last season Brewer was better than Thabo defensively and just as underwhelming on offense. They need someone who can relieve Rose of his offensive burden not compound it.

Afflalo however is a decent fit. Very efficient, a very good defensive player and a better shooter than anyone on the Bulls last year and.

Brandon Roy will NEVER be the same, forget about him...

He's not just "unhealthy," his knee has NOTHING LEFT TO OPERATE ON

(Plus why would the bulls need another guard who shoots a low % 3?)

Because there is much more to basketball than the 3 point line. Their inability to make 3s at a high rate did not hurt them as much as the fact that Derrick Rose had no one else to take some of the offensive ball handling and shot creating burden off his back last season. This entire thread is hypothetical so to state a healthy Roy would be his best fit is also hypothetical.

I see names like Dwyane Wade, Manu Ginobili, Monta Ellis, Eric Gordon, Joe Johnson, etc being thrown around. Well as far a 3 point shooting goes there really isn't that big of a gap between Brandon Roy and those guys.

OJ Mayo is the most realistic trade target for the Bulls once the lockout is lifted, whenever that is. However, the Grizzlies would ask for Gibson or Asik in return. I would do it for Asik in a heartbeat. Given Boozer's inconsistent defense, it makes it almost impossible for the Bulls to trade Gibson. However, a package that could work for both teams would be Darrel Arthur and OJ Mayo for Taj Gibson and Ronnie Brewer and a future first. I think this trade would fit both teams needs. Grizzlies get some defensive help; the bulls get a much needed boost at the two guard position with Mayo and a very solid young big in Arthur. This should be a deal that the Bulls should consider. I would hate to give up Taj but I would love to have Arthur and Mayo on this team.

define chucker. Nick Young has average efficiency and he's a good shooter who's not afraid to shoot, we need a guy like that. He also has a reputation as a Heat-killer, which is also something we can use.

The wizards are not a particularly well run team, if Young is chucking on that team it must not be discouraged. He would play differently here.

J-rich would probably still be better though, just his age is what has me being doubtful. I'd rather go for the younger guys

james harden maybe a good play maker. but when you have d. rose on your team you dont take the ball out of his hands.

ray allen to me is the best complimentary player to d.rose. he can play off the ball, deadly from 3 point range, plays solid D, and doesnt have an ego.

Couple things with BG....

1) I don't think he would play well with Rose at all...BG was also known as a chucker in Chicago....he would put up the most horrendous shots ever and it would just stunt the Bulls offense

2) I might be wrong but I also thing BG burnt his bridges with the Bulls on the way he departed.

3) His contract is ridiculous.

I think Ray Allen, Afflalo, Manu, Mayo would all be solid next to Rose.

I honestly think Rose and Monta would be a nightmare for opposing defenses.

AA is another good one.

He needs a SG with size that can defend, handle the ball, shoot the 3, and create his own shot. They don't have to be great at any of these, but they need to be able to be at least average in all of these.

OJ Mayo and JR Smith.

I would lean to Smith because they would not have to give up anything to get him, and i think he is just a better player.

Joe Johnson would be the ideal fit for the bulls.

I thought Captain Jack would've been a good fit to take the pressure off him.

Joe Johnson......SMH that would be excellent, drawing defenders on a fast break and kicking out to him for a three, even if they close in on Johnson, he just finds his own shot, win-win situation.

Ray Allen 10 years ago would be perfect. Ray Allen right now would still be beautiful.

If everyone only wants that knock down shooter then just get him Morrow. Cheap and a great 3 pt threat.

you have to team rose with a player with passing so he can play off the ball and get into spots. another thing the team needs is someone who can help boozer. they're not getting much value for boozer so might as well find ways to use him.

rose can't play pick and roll with boozer as well as dwill.

A guy like Ray Allen would make a pretty sexy backcourt.

We couldn't, Joe Johnson got offered a huge contract by Atlanta.

He needs a catch and shoot guy.. Like Walter Ray Allen or Jonathan Clay Reddick.

Plain and simple.
