Derrick’s Rose’s No. 1 is safe after all. Goran Dragic, who finalized the terms of his one-year, $2.9 million contract with the Chicago Bulls Tuesday, will wear No. 7 next season.

Dragic will become the 14th player in Bulls' franchise history to sport No. 7, joining the likes of Hall of Famer and three-time NBA champion Toni Kukoc and Ben Gordon. Troy Brown Jr., who signed with the Lakers this offseason, was the last to wear the number.
