10:01 AM ET 01.27 | Executive vice president of basketball operations John Paxson doubts his team will make a significant move at the trade deadline and said the return of former MVP Derrick Rose figures to be their big move. "We're up against what's called a hard cap," Paxson said Friday on "The Waddle & Silvy Show" on ESPN Chicago 1000. "In order for us to do something we're not in a position to take on any real salary so we're kind of limited in what we can do. I think our team has grown -- it's not always pretty, let's face it; we've had some ugly games this year and that's kind of who we are right now. But we do grind it out and play hard. "You're always on the lookout to do certain things, but I think our move hopefully will be bringing Derrick back into the fold."

If Chicago does not do something it will be an early playoff exit.

Really, why are the Bulls spending "Laker-style money?" Oh, wait. The Lakers suck.
