Derrick Rose Wants to Play for Team USA Next Summer


Derrick Rose is interested in playing for team USA next summer.

Derrick Rose is expected to be ready for the Bulls season opener in Miami after recovering from a torn ACL. Rose is now looking forward to receiving an invite for team USA in the World Championships next summer.

“I mean, if they pick me, yeah,” Rose said Monday in Manila when asked if he wants to join Team USA. “If they select me on the team, it will be an honor….

“I definitely will be on the team if Coach K (Team USA head coach Mike Krzyzewski) wants me,” he said.

It would be hard for Chicago native Mike Krzyzewski to deny the former MVP.
