Derrick Rose acknowledged he's already thinking about free agency despite it being two seasons away in 2017.
Rose was answering a question about his mindset amid a civil suit filed against him.
"This whole summer I had tunnel vision," he said. "My mindset was just making sure that I was working out every day and spending as much time as possible with my son and focusing on them two things.
"Making sure that my family is financially stable -- as far as, you see all the money that they're passing out in this league, [I'm] just telling the truth, just knowing that my day will be coming up soon. It's not for me, it's for [son] P.J. and his future. so that's what I'm thinking about right now."
Rose believes his future will still be with the Chicago Bulls, but wants to keep the possibilities open.
"It's here," he said. "But when you talk about that much money, the only thing you can do is prepare for it, trying to prepare not only myself but my family. I'm doing all of this for my son. I'm thinking about his future even though we're all right, we're comfortable. When you talk about that 'X' amount of dollars, I think it raises everyone's eyebrows. It's nothing wrong with being over-prepared."
Rose signed a five-year max extension worth close to $95 million before the 11-12 season.
