Chicago Bulls had a major blow when they were confirmed that Derrick Rose had a medial meniscus tear in the right knee. Rose faced the exact same injury last season which limited his appearances to 10. It is still uncertain when Rose will make a return as he is yet to undergo surgery. The Bulls are now desperate to get floor generals who will pick up the offensive slack.
The only options Bulls currently have at point guard is Kirk Hinrich, E’Twaun Moore, and Aaron Brooks who are not very favorable to select. Nevertheless Brooks can be counted upon among this trio. Bulls lost to Charlotte Hornets following the injury of Rose, and it seems the team is going to hit the market again for a stopgap solution.
A familiar face is becoming available in the market. Nate Robinson wants to get back to the Bulls after he was waived by Boston Celtics. This pint sized point guard has already served the Bulls pretty well for a year in the past. It was again Rose’s injury rehabilitation in 2012-13 that gave Robinson the chance to start in 23 out of 82 games. During that period, he averaged 13.1 points with 4.4 assists and also having a 43.3 % shooting from the field. However, Head Coach Tom Thibodeau still did not make it clear regarding the team’s interest of acquiring Robinson’s service despite Rose’s injury. With Rose’s record of injury and Robinson’s availability, Chicago Bulls should really not be picky in this situation.
