8. Aaron Brooks (2014-2016)

Number of starts: 21

In the last two seasons where D-Rose was the star point guard in the Windy City, veteran journeyman Aaron Brooks filled in whenever he was injured. Brooks spent the bulk of his NBA career with the Houston Rockets, but the Bulls were the last team that he spent more than one season with before the end of his run in the league.

The Bulls saw Brooks start in 21 of the 151 games he played in for them. In those more than 150 games he played in for the Bulls, Brooks averaged 9.6 points per game, 2.9 assists, and 1.8 rebounds, while shooting 41.4 percent from the field and 37.6 percent from three-point range. He was also a key part of a rotation that made two playoff runs for the Bulls.

7. CJ Watson (2010-2012)

Number of starts: 26

A combo guard for the Bulls that also got a few starts during his two seasons in the Windy City is the veteran sharpshooter CJ Watson. As the backup that served under D-Rose early in his career wit the Bulls, including his MVP season, Watson played an important role through numerous playoff runs in the Eastern Conference.

Just like Brooks, Watson was a true journeyman in the NBA that saw his run end after the 2016-17 season. He played for five different NBA teams over the course of 10 seasons. He played the second most games with the Bulls compared with any of the five teams he suited up for. He averaged 6.7 points per game, 2.4 assists, 2.3 rebounds, and 0.8 steals, with the Bulls.
