Chicago Bulls won't overhaul roster

Although Chicago Bulls’ point guard Derrick Rose will miss the remainder of the season after tearing the meniscus in his right knee, Bulls’ general manager Gar Forman says the team won’t panic and completely overhaul the roster.

“This just happened,” Forman told Melissa Isaacson of ESPN Chicago. “It’s too early to start to go down that road. From an organizational standpoint, our front office, not just this year but every year, we always evaluate our team, where we’re at, how we can get better.”

The Bulls have been connected to a few different players and as we hear every year, are reportedly willing to part with forward Luol Deng, but they don’t appear to be in any rush to immediately try to replace Rose.

“We’re not going to make rash decisions. We feel we have a bright future ahead and we’re positioned well,” Forman said. “We have good players in their 20s, Derrick is going to come back, we’re positioned well with draft picks into the future and we have some level of flexibility which we haven’t had under this new CBA.”
