I frankly don't know if this would work because Rose is still on his rookie contract. The Bulls would have to toss some other players in there to make the trade work, and maybe that's a good reason not to do it. But let's set that aside for the moment and just assume, theoretically, that the trade was essentially Rose for Paul, with filler that the Bulls could afford to give up. Would you do it?
I don't know if this will sway anyone's opinion, or which way it will sway it, but I got this idea from a poll on the Celtics Blog. Right now, at least, a substantial majority of Celtics fans would willingly trade Rajon Rondo for Chris Paul.
