Van Gundy Unsure of Rose’s Bulls Future

In an era when NBA superstars pair up for the easiest path to a championship, former Orlando Magic head coach Stan Van Gundy wondered Monday if Derrick Rose will be one of the next to look for greener pastures if the Chicago Bulls don’t land another superstar or win a championship.
“I think the interesting one coming up in the future is going to be Derrick Rose,” Van Gundy said on AM-740′s “The Game” in Orlando. “I think Derrick Rose is a great, great representative of our league, and he’s a great player. And he’s got good players around him, very good players around him, but if (the Bulls) can’t get another star there for him is he eventually going to look around and say, ‘Hey, I’ve got to work this out on my own and I’ve got to find somehow to get somewhere else so that I will have a chance to play with another star.’ The league has changed.”
Rose, who tore his ACL during the Bulls’ first playoff game last season against the Philadelphia 76ers, has stated that he plans to stay in Chicago for his entire career. He signed a five-year max extension before last season worth over $90 million. Van Gundy’s point is that if Rose can’t rebound from the injury and win a championship, even the most loyal player may start to look at other situations.
