Rose should be visible during Anthony's visit

We hadn't heard from Derrick Rose for months, but that changed when he spoke to Marc Spears from Yahoo.com on Sunday at Drew Gooden's basketball camp in California.

Rose talked about his rehab, playing for Team USA this summer and, of course, Carmelo Anthony. Here's the link:

Regarding Rose's "recruiting is not my job" comment, it's consistent with what he said in 2010 when the Bulls were after LeBron James. But in the aftermath of 2010, when Dwyane Wade helped convince two all-stars to come to Miami, you would think Rose might approach it differently.

Rose doesn't need to beg Anthony to join the Bulls or even deliver a sales pitch. But he should be ready and available to have a conversation with Anthony when the high-scoring Knicks forward visits Chicago, which reportedly will happen Tuesday. Maybe he will.

Rose is the Bulls' highest-paid player. Helping the team get better is absolutely part of his job.
