The new normal in the NBA appears to be that players will contact potential free agents to gauge their interest in joining them on their team.
Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose does no such thing.
Rose recently told Rappler.com that he will continue with his stance to not recruit free agents to play with him in Chicago.
“I don’t recruit. If anyone wants to play with me, I don’t mind playing with ... it could be anyone in the NBA, but as far as recruiting, I never did and never will,” Rose said.
The Bulls' first game of the 2013-2014 season is against the Miami Heat, the defending NBA champions on Oct. 29.
