It really would be something if Derrick Rose's career came full circle by playing again for his hometown Bulls. Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

Derrick Rose remains beloved by Chicago Bulls fans, and it sounds like the feeling may still be mutual.

Rose did not close the door on returning to Chicago, the city where he was born and started his NBA career, after his current contract expires at the end of the season.

It’s a general answer but it’s something. Rose was a member of the Bulls until 2016, by which point a series of knee injuries had robbed him of his prime. As surprising as the trade was to him at the time, he seems to have moved on. There’s no indication at this point that the Bulls are preparing to bring him back, but it’s an intriguing possibility.

Rose has been good for the Detroit Pistons this season in what has primarily been a reserve role, averaging 18.2 points and 5.8 assists per game.
