This is more of an intellectual exercise than anything else, but I was thinking about today the possibility that if the Bulls signed Dwyane Wade and if it was shown clearly that he and Rose couldn't co-exist, who the Bulls might possibly think about trading him for. Two big ifs, of course, but for the sake of discussion, let's say it happens.
Is there anyone you would trade Rose for straight up given that scenario? Since I'm talking about only 1 for 1 trades, they'd have to either be on rookie deals or a real bargain veteran. Would you consider trading him for someone like Stephen Curry to get a shooter next to Wade? Someone like Kevin Love to get a post scorer to upgrade Gibson? Blake Griffin?
I wouldn't do any of those deals straight up because Rose has more value than all of them at this point in his career. And while I would do it for Durant, he has more value than Rose. Anyway, I just wanted to hear some ideas about who possibly would match up for a fair trade in that scenario.
