According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, we have reason to believe Derrick Rose is on the Chicago Bulls radar this offseason. Yes, you read that right.
“Derrick Rose is another name in Chicago,” Wojnarowski told Zach Lowe during their exclusive YouTube offseason special. “I don’t think he is necessarily at the top of their priority list, but if he doesn’t return to New York, is there a role for Derrick Rose with the Bulls? I just think there are a lot of contingencies all these teams are working through.”
As Wojnarowski said, it does not appear as if Rose is at the top of Arturas Karnisvoas’ to-do list, but the fact the league’s top insider is connecting the two at all feels pretty damn huge.
It’s no secret the Bulls are in the market for a new starting point guard, but they are also hunting for improved bench depth. Surely, a 32-year-old Rose would not be an option to fill the former, but he could be a great addition to the team’s second unit.
