The most problematic position for the Chicago Bulls this season has been point guard.
After signing former Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo in the offseason, they have had three different starting point guards while Rondo, Michael Carter-Williams, and Jerian Grant swing in and out of the Bulls rotation.
Now, they are seeking to get a bit of stability at that spot for the playoff push as they have been contacting the Houston Rockets about a potential trade for point guard Patrick Beverley.
The Bulls have had strong interest in Houston's Pat Beverley but the Rockets have rebuffed offers, sources tell @CSNChicago

The Bulls aren’t the only teams going after Beverley before Thursday’s trade deadline, with the Rockets reportedly receiving interest from the Cleveland Cavaliers and New York Knicks as well.
Beverley would be an excellent compliment to the Bulls starting lineup. He is able to handle the ball well and play great defense, while also being useful without the ball in his hands on offense due to his strong three-point shooting.
The Rockets reportedly declined to trade their longtime point guard for Cavs guard Iman Shumpert, so it appears their price is pretty high.
