Early Predictions for Chicago Bulls' Starting 5 Next Season

Led by players like Joakim Noah and Luol Deng, the Bulls should be an elite team.

The Chicago Bulls possess solid bench players like Taj Gibson and Kirk Hinrich, and their starting lineup is one of the best in the business. 

What five players will start for coach Tom Thibodeau's Bulls squad next season? Will free-agent acquisition Mike Dunleavy Jr. or rookie Tony Snell grab a spot?

Derrick Rose, the face of the franchise, missed all of last season as he recovered from knee surgery. The Bulls overachieved without the former MVP, picking up 45 victories and knocking off the Brooklyn Nets in the first round of the playoffs. They even managed to steal Game 1 of the Miami Heat series. 

With Rose's return next season, the Bulls should emerge as legit title contenders and give the Heat a run for their money.

Here are Rose and the rest of Chicago's 2013-14 starting five.
