Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose stressed that he won't help recruit any free-agent this summer, though he admits he liked the tenacity of Carmelo Anthony everytime he steps on the floor, the former MVP said in an interview with Yahoo Sports on Sunday.

Rose, who is expected to play the start of the season after missing 72 games due to an MCL injury, said he won' be involved in the recruiting process but he's very much willing to play with a new teammate next season.
"I love Melo's game," Rose said. "He's a great player. Takes the game serious. He's consistent. He shoots the ball great. I love his heart. I can play with anybody, no matter who it is. I believe I can play with anyone if they step on the court with me."
The Bulls are among the teams being linked to Anthony since last season. With a core of Rose and Defensive Player of the Year Joakim Noah, the Bulls are certainly an ideal destination for a championship-hungry Anthony.
When asked about his progress from injury, Rose promised to play on Day 1 of the season, though he is not sure if he's going to participate with Team USA in the FIBA World Cup.
"I still don't know yet," Rose told Yahoo Sports at the Drew Gooden Foundation Basketball Camp on Sunday. "If I'm feeling right and the time is [right], for sure I will go out there. My body is responding good, but you never know.
"Right now, I haven't really thought about that. I am just worrying about just trying to get back every day and I'm really taking rehab one day at a time instead of trying to think about competing."
