Jimmy Butler, first round pick of the Bulls, has been spending time during the lockout with Derrick Rose.

"Derrick Rose has been the guy who has really, really helped me," Butler said. "I've spent time with him off the court during this lockout. We're getting to know each other. And he's teaching me the basics. That's big for me. You have to start somewhere. And if you get the bottom line down, you build from there."

Randall Hampton, Rose's best friend, played on the same junior college team as Butler.

"I'm supposed to get a workout in with him next time I'm out in Los Angeles," Butler said. "So that should be a good experience."
