Bulls Reportedly Pursuing Terry Rozier is a Hilariously Bad Idea

Terry Rozier will be a restricted free agent this summer, and he's already come out and said he "might have to go" if the Boston Celtics are bringing back the same roster.

Whether they do or not might not matter, because there's a good chance Boston moves on from Rozier of their own accord.

However, he's a hard-nosed player who can certainly fill the cup in the right circumstances, and according to reports, Rozier is on the Chicago Bulls radar.

That is, unfortunately, NOT the right circumstances.

Chicago may be drawn to his fearlessness and tenacity on defense, but how do you think head coach Jim Boylen, who has an old school approach, will react to Rozier's carefree attitude on offense and his willingness to put up a monstrous amount of shots, as if he's already an elite scorer?

There's no doubt the Bulls need help at the point guard position, but the relationship between Rozier and Boylen already seems like a bad idea. Your point guard needs to be an extension of your head coach, and that could be a problem between Rozier and Boylen.

Don't get me wrong, it would be great television. But if Chicago wants to improve, signing Rozier to big money might not be the way to go.
