Derrick Rose's return draws ever closer. In fact, if the estimates of the first game after the All-Star break hold true, Rose could be making his return two weeks from the writing of this article. 

In his absence, the Bulls have been playing better than expected, sitting a full 10 games over .500 and tied with the Indiana Pacers for the lead of he Central Division. 

Rose will doubtless answer some of the problems, most notably the Bulls' struggles on offense. Last year the Bulls were 8.2 points better per 48 minutes while Rose was on the court. The year prior they were 11.2 points better. 

Certainly the Bulls are a more effective offense with Rose. 

That won't solve all the issues the Bulls have though, and if they want to win a title this year, there are a few tweaks they need to make as soon as possible. 

Once Rose returns, it's going to be all about getting ready for the postseason, which means that the roster and rotations need to be settled quickly.

With that in mind, here are a few tweaks the Bulls should consider.
