Derrick Rose May Play in 2016 Olympics


Could Derrick Rose still be in play for USA basketball? According to the Chicago Tribune, the answer is yes:

He could factor in very well,” USA Basketball Chairman Jerry Colangelo said. “It’s really up to him. We’re waiting for him to come back physically and emotionally and see how he does this year. But we very much consider him a candidate.

I am sure Derrick Rose came up because Colangelo began evaluating prospects this week in a minicamp and Bulls Head Coach Tom Thibodeau is a new assistant for the team. However, how about we let D Rose come back to an NBA court before we start letting him go for gold? I assume “The Return” will happen before 2016 in Rio de Janeiro, right?
