With a ton of upheaval expected in Chicago this summer, it appears as if their former MVP Derrick Rose may be on the move.

The point guard, who is still only 27, has been the subject of trade rumours for quite some time now and as he is entering the final year of his contract, it appears as though the Bulls might be prepared to try and get some value for their All-Star.

ESPN's Ian Begley has suggested that the New York Knicks are seriously exploring the possibility of trading for Rose. Apart from Carmelo Anthony, Kristaps Porzingis and a couple of future first-round picks, the Knicks haven't got much in their arsenal to tempt Chicago.

The report says:

"The Knicks have had internal discussions recently about trading for Rose, league sources tell ESPN.

Both Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek and GM Steve Mills have said that the Knicks are interested in upgrading their point guard position in the offseason. The Knicks' incumbent starting point guard is Jose Calderon, while other potential point guards include second-year guard Jerian Grant and free-agent signee Tony Wroten."

Rose's backcourt partner in Chicago, Jimmy Butler, hopes the rumours are nothing real and they can stay together to develop their partnership.

"There are so many things that we have in common that when we utilise those things and play together like that, I think we can be just as unguardable as anybody else," Butler said.

With Pau Gasol and Joakim Noah heading to free agency and virtually guaranteed to leave, it could be a very interesting summer in the Windy City.
