Former NBA guard and Slam Dunk champion Nate Robinson believes the Chicago Bulls would benefit immensely by pairing Zach LaVine with Derrick Rose.

Rose is currently on the Detroit Pistons after signing a two-year deal with the Motor City franchise last summer. The former Bulls superstar had interest in coming back to Chicago before signing with the Pistons, but the Bulls signed Tomas Satoransky instead and it turned out to be a huge mistake by the Windy City club.

Robinson says he would pay his hard-earned money to watch Rose suit up for his hometown Bulls again, via Brandon “Scoop B” Robinson of Heavy.

I asked Nate Robinson how cool it would be to see Derrick Rose back in a Bulls uniform and playing in a backcourt alongside Zach LaVine. “That would be fun to watch,” Robinson said.

“Especially the struggles that D-Rose had to come back and play the best basketball. I think over the years, he has been unbelievable. A fun ride to watch, he’s been doing his thing and for a guy to go through so much turmoil, is tragic man.

“It was just fun to watch his career develop like it did. I know that he would love to come back home in front of his home crowd and ball out again and be a Chicago Bull. I would DEFINITELY pay to watch him in Chicago.”

Before the 2019-20 season was suspended due to COVID-19, Rose was the best player for the Pistons. The youngest MVP in NBA history was averaging 18.1 points and 5.6 assists per game.

The Bulls currently lack another dynamic scorer to take the offensive pressure off LaVine. Rose fits that bill, as he's averaging 18.0 points over the last two seasons with the Minnesota Timberwolves and Pistons.

If the Bulls had Rose and LaVine to work with in the backcourt, their offense would improve dramatically. LaVine put up 25.5 points, 4.8 rebounds and 4.2 assists for Chicago this season.

Both the Pistons and Bulls won't be partaking in the “bubble” games in Orlando, so Rose and LaVine are done for the 2019-20 campaign.

The Bulls have a new man running the organization in Arturas Karnisovas. Maybe he’ll try and bring Rose back home via trade whenever the 2020 offseason period begins.
