Central Notes: Rose, Van Gundy, Waiters

As Derrick Rose inches closer toward his return to NBA action in 2014/15 following a season-ending injury last season, Kevin Pelton of ESPN explains why the Bulls superstar is better preparing himself by starting his adjustment period against some of the league’s best point guards in Team USA camp rather than waiting until Bulls training camp in the fall to begin playing at a high level (Insiders only). With that aside, here’s more of what we’ve gathered out of the Central Division this evening:

  • Rose outlined what his pitch to Carmelo Anthony had been as he spoke with reporters, including Kurt Helin of Rose’s message was simple, but it was seemingly more than just the brief hello that one report had indicated was the extent of the contact between the two stars.
  • Pistons coach/executive Stan Van Gundy acknowledged that the team had to be more aggressive in its pitches to free agents this summer because of its lack of success on the court of late, as Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press notes.
  • Dion Waiters and Andrew Wiggins have both been in plenty of trade chatter, but if they both remain with the Cavs, only one of them seems likely to start. Waiters isn’t demanding that he be the starter, but he’s resolute in his belief that he’s the man for the job, as he tells Chris Haynes of
  • Doug McDermott is aware that his name is being attached in trade talks regarding Kevin Love; however, Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times writes that the Bulls rookie hasn’t asked the front office to keep him updated on those rumors as he waits to see what happens.

    Waiters should look at the role Norris Cole played for the Heat. Waiters >> than Cole, and should be the front-runner for the 6th man of the year award if he comes off the bench. Asking Wiggins to come off the bench as a Rookie might stunt his growth, whereas allowing him to play off the ball and receive wide open shots, via attention paid mostly to LBJ and Kyrie, will only allow him to gain confidence and work on his jumper.
