Rose acknowledges tension with Bulls

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) - Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose acknowledged tension between members of his inner circle and team management.

Rose tells the Chicago Sun-Times in an article posted Thursday that he knows "it's been there." He says things seemed fine when he "was around," but he would then hear they weren't.

There has been speculation in recent years of tension between the organization and Rose's camp. The newspaper cites organization sources as saying the strain was over members of his inner circle taking shots at the organization and Rose not playing a bigger role in recruiting Carmelo Anthony.

In a statement, chairman Jerry Reinsdorf denied any discord, saying he can't remember when the organization has been more "cohesive."

Rose praised the roster and said it's time to "move in a positive direction."
