Bulls' Derrick Rose 'Sick And Tired' Of Hearing Dwight Howard Rumors

Friday March 9th, 2012

Are you getting fed up with the excessive coverage of the Dwight Howard trade saga this season?

You're not alone. In fact, you've got quite a high-profile compatriot -- reigning MVP Derrick Rose says he doesn't want to hear it anymore, either.

"It's definitely getting old where I'm sick and tired of hearing it," Rose told Melissa Isaacson of ESPN Chicago tonight. "Like I've said, this city speaks for itself. Chicago, marketing-wise, is a great city. If someone chooses to come here, they definitely could, but I'm cool with the teammates that I have."

The Bulls are far from the only trade destination discussed these days, of course -- New Jersey, Dallas and Los Angeles are considered the three front-runners to land the Orlando Magic's superstar big man.

But Rose, who has led the Chicago Bulls to a dazzling 33-8, the best record in the NBA, isn't interested in hearing about Howard to the Windy City.
