This is terrible news for the Bulls, of course, but it could be good news for any team shopping a point guard. Orlando and Jameer Nelson, I’m looking at you. Also, do the Suns really need Goran Dragic right now?
There’s not many prospective playoff teams in the market for point guards right now. The position is more important than ever, and it seems like it’s near-impossible to be even a remotely plausible contender with a weakness at the point.
So now the Bulls could be looking for someone to shoulder the load with Rose out for some time. Although they could just go with Marquis Teague. There’s certainly an argument that trading for a new PG would be an overreaction.
