Can Rush be Bulls' perimeter fix?

One of the big questions facing a Chicago team that's expected to be one of the primary challengers to Miami in the East next season is its 3-point shooting. Last season, only Memphis averaged fewer than the 5.4 3s the Bulls made per game. Without Nate Robinson or Marco Belinelli, now with Denver and San Antonio respectively, Chicago will have to rely on the improved range of Derrick Rose, the addition of veteran Mike Dunleavy and the stroke of Jimmy Butler to serve as their primary long-range threats.
One potential solution? Trading for a proven 3-point shooter who fits Tom Thibodeau's defensive-oriented system. Someone, perhaps, like Utah's Brandon Rush.
