Derrick Rose Reveals His Recruitment Of Carmelo Anthony To Chicago Bulls

It was news when it was revealed that Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose won’t be using his best recruiting skill for then free agent Carmel Anthony much less any other free agent.

People misconstrued that as him not wanting Anthony to move to Chicago and build towards becoming a championship team.

Rose cleared up all of those rumors in a conversation while practicing with team USA.

“If he was to come, the game would be easy,” he said. “I don’t know how easy but of course it would be easy. And that we wanted him. Just plain and simple, we wanted him to come. He decided to go somewhere else. But it’s no hard feelings. I can’t get mad at the decision he made. He’s a grown man.’’

That pretty much sums everything up.

After losing out on the Melo sweepstakes as he ended up re-signing with the New York Knicks, the Bulls used the amnesty clause to release power forward Carlos Boozer to sign former Los Angeles Lakers big man Pau Gasol.
