5 Potential Trade Targets Chicago Bulls Must Pursue to Help Derrick Rose

The Chicago Bulls are a team that could contend for a championship already, but they have an Achilles heel in that they have but one superstar, Derrick Rose. They might be able to win without him in the regular season, and they can possibly win with just him in the postseason, but to win multiple championships they need someone to help him. 

Carlos Boozer was supposed to be that player, and he hasn't worked out so well. While he offers more help than some credit him for, it's not enough, which is why he is criticized. Luol Deng has the heart, but not the ball-handling skills, to be a superstar. 

Joakim Noah may be emerging as the Bulls star without Rose, but it's hard to envision him as the second player who can handle the ball and take the pressure off of Rose when opponents put the trap on him. 

Here are five ideas of players who could help the Bulls and Rose, the link to verify the trade proposal would work, and the pros and cons of each trade for each team. Remember, though, you have to give something to get something, and you have to give something other teams want.
