Bulls - Trade Rose and 'start over'?

I haven't been in to basketball since the Jordan/Pippen era.  I'm trying to get back into the nba and I don't know much about Rose.  I turned off injuries and started a 'MyGm'.  In 5 games he has hurt his knee twice, including tearing his ACL.  Since I turned of injuries he is fully recovered by the next game....but it's getting old already.

I'm thinking about unloading boozer, rose, the bulls 2014 & 2015 draft picks (among other players) to acquire 2-3 lottery picks.  

I'm going to keep Noah and probably keep Hinrich/Fredette for my bench.  I love Jimmy Butler and Taj Gibson but I don't know if there will be room for them once I acquire the players I'm eyeballing.  It's kind of a silly thought, but I'd like my line up to look like the following:

C - Joakim Noah

PF - Doug McDermott

SF - Jabari Parker

SG - Andrew Wiggins

PG - Free agent/Jimmy Butler/Hinrich/Fredette

I downloaded the 'top downloaded' draft class and it has two of those guys projected as non - lottery picks.  So I could potentially get my ideal roster.

Should I move Rose and try to build a young roster or stick with him and hope for the best?

This game has Rose's attributes set pretty high and he's ranked as one of the top PG's in this game...so I see no reason to try and dump him unless you're simply not a fan of playing as a currently injured star.

I ended up trading and cutting everyone except noah and rose.  Butler wanted 4 yr - 28 mil...but he ended up taking my 1 yr - 1.5 mill offer.  Drafted Jabari Parker #2, Exum 12 and Marcus smart @ 28.  All three were steals in my eyes.  Signed Pau Gasol to a one year deal to fill a void at PF.

C - Noah  (Lopez)

PF - Pau Gasol (Rookie)

SF - Jabari Parker (Snell, Dunleavy)

SG - Dante Exum  (Jimmy Butler)

PG - Derrick Rose (Marcus Smart, Hinrich)

First game I played was a blow out.  There are too many scoring options to cover.  My bench mob is better than most teams starting line ups.  The only cons to my team are 0 draft picks next season and an old PF....But I will have a ton of cap space to work with and the majority of my team is very young.
