In case you were busy watching “Room 237” and missed it, Rose caused an unnecessary flap at Bulls media day Monday by talking about his coming free agency — in 2017. It was vintage Rose, not thinking about the impact of what he would say or how it might be spun (especially by his detractors, of which there are plenty in Chicago).

It doesn’t bother Butler, however. He is likely more concerned about when Rose will come back from his fractured orbital bone.
