Derrick Rose openly recruits Bulls star to New York Knicks

Published Add your comment

Derrick Rose is now a player for the New York Knicks, it still seems weird.

Rose hasn't wasted any time, however, in trying to make his new team even better. The point guard has only been a Knick for a couple of days but he is already recruiting free agents to join him, Carmelo Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis in The Big Apple.

Rose made his first move during his introductory press conference, publicly stating that he would love to see a former Bulls teammate of his make the move to New York.

That former teammate? The one and only, Joakim Noah. 

"I want him," Rose said when asked about New York's recruitment of the big center. "He knows that. I think his family knows that. I think everyone knows that."

Reports surfaced earlier this week that the Knicks were interested in making a run at Noah, which should come as a surprise to absolutely no one seeing as they gave away their starting center in the trade to get Rose.

With Robin Lopez out of town, the Knicks are in need of someone to fill that 5 spot, and what better way to do it than with a free agent who is almost certainly looking for a fresh start on a new team.

If the Knicks do make a serious run for Noah, they will face some stiff competition. The Minnesota Timberwolves, armed with former Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau, are also chasing the big man with the Washington Wizards being in contention for his Noah's signature as well.
