Chicago suffered a devastating loss with the Derrick Rose injury during the NBA Playoffs, but the team will move forward and will likely play most of the 2012-13 season without the former MVP.
The Bulls need a veteran to help run the squad and the latest from Jesse Dorsey of Bleacher Report suggests the team look at former Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich. The 31-year-old played his first seven years in the league with Chicago and returning could be the help the Bulls need to contend in the Eastern Conference next season.
The former first round draft choice averaged just 6.6 points and 2.8 assists off the bench in Atlanta, but the veteran has averaged over 12 points and six assists in his career and a return to a starters role could see his numbers drastically improve over last seasons.
Chicago still has a good nucleus of players and with a smart move or two this summer, this team won't drop off the map next season. Adding an NBA veteran like Hinrich is a good start and a move that would keep Bulls fans happy until their star returns, which is hopefully at some point in the upcoming basketball season.
