Rose is still recovering from a torn ACL, suffered in the first round of this year's playoffs and leaves the Bulls with quite the void in their backcourt.
Enter Tyreke Evans.
As Tyler Conway of Bleacher Report speculates, the Bulls would be wise to make a move that would bring the former University of Memphis guard to the Windy City.
In that particular trade, the Bulls would likely part ways with Luol Deng and potentially a draft choice in the coming years.
The trade makes a ton of sense for both sides.
First off, the Bulls can erase any concerns over their backcourt if they were to acquire Evans, while the Kings add the defensive specialist they so desperately need.
Evans is an athletic shooting guard who has seen his role change on a number of different occasions in Sacramento, and a change of scenery may be exactly what the doctor ordered.
He, along with Derrick Rose, would combine to form what would be one of the NBA's best backcourts for years to come.
Evans, a native of Chester, PA, has averaged 18.2 points, 4.9 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game over the course of his first three years in the league.
For the Kings, acquiring Deng adds the aforementioned defensive specialist and improves their team defense as a whole.
Deng can score too, however, as he has averaged double figures in every season of his career thus far.
Trading Tyreke Evans also allows the Kings to get a better look at some of their other younger guards, such as Isaiah Thomas and Jimmer Fredette.
It may just be speculation for now, but this is one of those trades where both teams could truly reap the benefits.
