Derrick Rose Says He ‘Never’ Asked Bulls to Trade for Pau Gasol

by February 23, 2012

Derrick Rose denied published reports that he had quietly urged the Chicago front-office to go after Pau Gasol. Per CSN: “I heard it after the game [on Monday] and that’s something that I wouldn’t say to anyone,’ said Rose. ‘It was all false and that’s something I’ll never do. I’m good with the teammates that I have. I’ve always been saying that. We’ve been winning games and we’re not in the position to look to trade anyone right now. I talked to [Boozer] a little bit, but I think he already knew that [the rumor] was false,’ continued Rose. ‘It’s something that I wouldn’t do to anyone. It was all false.'”
