Is there another episode of #TheReturn brewing?
The Bulls just departed with Derrick Rose last offseason, but he might be considering a return to his hometown, per a Thursday afternoon report.
Rose had been linked in previous reports to the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Los Angeles Lakers, but a return to the Bulls would be downright nuts.
Rose spent the first eight years of his NBA career with the Bulls, the No. 1 pick in the 2008 NBA Draft, the 2008-09 Rookie of the Year, a three-time All Star and the youngest MVP in league history back in 2010-11.
While big-time injuries derailed his career in Chicago, the Bulls don't have much in the way of a proven point guard.
Remember, too, that Rose attended a Bulls playoff game at the United Center earlier this year.
Last season with the New York Knicks, Rose played in 64 games, averaging 18 points and 4.4 assists per game. That scoring average was the fourth highest of his career.
Of course, the possibility of Rose coming home is just found in one report, with a couple others dispelling the notion of a reunion.
