Chicago took a big hit when All-Star point guard Derrick Rose went down with a knee injury during the NBA Playoffs. The Bulls expect their former MVP to return at some point in the 2012-13 season, but adding a veteran to take over while he mends has become a priority.
Jason Kidd is one veteran that has expressed interest in playing for Chicago and while he would need to take a cut in pay, playing on a team that could win a championship is a plus.
The 39-year-old averaged 6.2 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 5.5 assists in playing just 28 minutes each night and a move to the Bulls should see an increase in those numbers. Kidd is not the best shooting point guard in the league, but the veteran can run a team and his basketball instincts are among the best in the league.
The front office for the Bulls will have a lot on their plate this off-season, but signing Kidd would give this team a good shot at advancing past the first round of the NBA Playoffs and supply the team with some insurance until their All-Star returns.
