Reggie Rose, brother of Derrick Rose, criticized the Chicago Bulls for being unable to put enough quality players around him to compete for a title.
Reggie Rose, who stated he was speaking for himself, said it could be a "big factor" in whether his brother returns from his ACL injury this season.
"What have you pieced together? Have you made any moves? Have you made any trades to get better? You know all roads to the championship lead through Miami," Reggie Rose said. "What pieces have you put together for the physical playoffs?
"Joakim Noah is a great player. Luol Deng is a great player. But you need more than that. You have to put together pieces to your main piece. The players can only do so much. It's up to the organization to make them better."
The Bulls didn't make a move in either direction at the deadline, meaning they will pay the tax for the first time.
Update: Derrick Rose released the following statement through the Bulls.
“I have always felt that the Bulls organization’s goals have been the same as mine and that is to bring another championship to this city.”
