Derrick Rose, Chicago Bulls management and Team USA officials are all on board with Rose's potential participation in the summer's mini-camp to form the World Cup roster in Spain in September.
"Oh absolutely, if he’s healthy and he’s cleared," Tom Thibodeau said, when asked if he'd like to see Rose play. "I thought it was a great experience for him before. I know he’d like to do it. I know how USA Basketball feels about him. So if he’s cleared to do it, I’d love to see him do it."
Thibodeau is an assistant coach for Team USA. Rose was part of the 2010 World Championship team.
"I think there has been great benefits from it, particularly for Derrick," Thibodeau said. "I thought that had a lot to do with him having the great year in the MVP year."
