It's no secret that Joakim Noah will help in the Bulls' recruitment of Carmelo Anthony when free agency begins tonight - he reportedly did so at the All-Star Game in February, too - and he may have calling upon Derrick Rose to do the same in a tweet he sent out Monday.


It's not clear what or who Noah was referencing in his tweet, but it comes a day after Yahoo Sports' Marc Spears reported that Rose has no intention of helping recruit Anthony or any other free agent.

"My thing is if they want to come, they can come," Rose told Spears, adding that it's "not my job" to bring in free agents.

It should be noted that Noah, who has referred to Rose as "lil' homie" in the past, has a propensity to use the nickname, including a tweet sent out at Tony Snell a year ago. He may have even been referring to Anthony in his tweet, as the seven-time All-Star has a decision to make on whether to chase more money in New York or a championship in Chicago or Houston.

Still, Noah's subtweet has garnered more than 3,000 retweets and favorites and, on the eve of free agency, is sure to make people think. Plus, three weeks ago Noah tweeted out that "everybody has the power to influence," if you're looking to stretch this out even further on who or what Noah was referring to.
