The major area lacking on this struggling Chicago Bulls roster is the point guard position.
Bulls guards Michael-Carter Williams and Rajon Rondo have struggled to inspire the Bulls in their respective chances to start. Now, the Bulls are turning to the trade market for an upgrade, and they have one target in mind: Minnesota Timberwolves guard Ricky Rubio.
The Bulls and Knicks have a strong interest in available Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio, per multiple sources.

Rubio has been the starting point guard in Minnesota for a long time, and with the Wolves struggling through yet another season, it is getting clear that it might be time to move on.
Why the Bulls would be interested is a completely different story. Rubio is a perfectly good player, averaging 7.7 points, 7.9 assists and 1.8 steals per game. Most importantly, he can run an offense as well as any one else in the league. But he is one of the league’s worst three point shooters, shooting just 24 percent from deep on 2.3 attempts per game.
Basically, he is only a slightly better version of a Rondo or a Williams, two players already proven not to fit with the Bulls starters. If Chicago was going to make a move, it would be smarter to go after a smaller name with bigger shooting potential, like Orlando Magic guard Jodie Meeks or New York Knicks guard Courtney Lee.
