Derrick Rose, born and raised in Chicago, would love nothing more but to return to his hometown and where he started his NBA career.
Rose will be an unrestricted free agent this summer and the 30-year All Star showed this season he can still play at a high level averaging 18 PPG, 2.7 RPG, 4.3 APG and shooting at 37% from the three.
“We’ll see what the Bulls have,”said BJ Armstrong, Rose’s agent, on 670 The Score.
The Bulls traded Rose to the New York Knicks on June 22 2016 with Justin Holiday and a 2017 second-round draft pick.
“There’s no secret, there’s no doubt in his heart that Chicago will always be there,” Armstrong said, “But we’ll see…certainly we’d be open to that conversation.”
It would make sense to sign Rose, especially if he’s considering this to be his last contract. Bulls may want to pick him up and possibly get Murray State’s Ja Morant from the NBA Draft, a favorite amongst Bulls fans. With that, Morant can learn from the youngest player to win the MVP.
