Chris Sheridan is reporting that Derrick Rose has told management he would be in favor of sending Carlos Boozer and another player to the Lakers for Pau Gasol.
Frankly, I don't buy it.
First of all, it's not something Rose would do. Derrick has said repeatedly that he won't recruit free agents, so why would he go to management to try to broker a trade? It's just not his style.
Plus, I talked to someone in the know who confirmed my suspicions and told me the report is straight out of left field.
