There were rumblings earlier in the year that Rose wasn’t about to sit around during a rebuilding period in Chicago and unconfirmed or not, the bottom line is that the Bulls need to start getting better now and need to do it fast.
According to ESPN Chicago’s Nick Fridell, the Bulls front office isn’t really connecting all that well with Rose and there seems to be growing frustration between the two sides on what the future of the team should look like.
The disconnect between the Bulls' front office and Rose's camp only seems to be growing deeper over time.

That could mean a lot of tings, as Rose as always been somewhat of a recluse and hasn’t been the most jovial guy in the world. He’s probably spoken fifteen words his entire career and mumbled most of them so it’s not a surprise that he’s a bit of a distant guy.
But disconnect is entirely different from distant as one suggests privacy and the other suggests problems.
Rose carries a lot of the blame for the Bulls not winning, because he hasn’t been out there to help them but the disconnect is concerning to Bulls fans and the fact that it’s not getting any better is even less encouraging.
