Bulls Trade Rumors: Derrick Rose Makes Smart Move Backing Current Team
The Chicago Bulls don't need any distractions or disruptions right now. At 27-8, they're tied for the best record in the league, but hoping their reigning MVP's achy back holds up night after night.
Despite their success, the Bulls have been at the center of trade rumors for a few superstar players.
I'm good with the teammates I have. I've always been saying that. The team that I have, we've been winning games, and we're not in the position to look to trade anyone right now.
The statement came after rumors surfaced of the superstar point guard pushing management to get involved for Pau Gasol of the Lakers:
I heard about it after (Monday's) game. That's something I wouldn't say to anyone, that I need someone to come to this team or I'm trying to get rid of someone on this team. It was all false and that's something I would never do.
Do the Bulls Need Another Player to Make a Finals Push?
It is actually the opposite of what Rose would do.
Last year, the fourth-year player was criticized for not making a strong enough pitch to land then-free agent LeBron James. Rose went on to win the MVP, but lost to James' Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals.
Still, Rose certainly wasn't wrong in the way he did things, and he's not wrong now.
He's right to stand up for his current team—they're playing pretty damn well—and putting an end to any rumors, true or false, was the smartest move he could make.
