The Sun-Times reported Thursday that there is tension between Rose's inner-circle and some members of the Bulls organization.
Reinsdorf released the following statement through the Bulls' public relations department Thursday night. "I am confounded by the irresponsible report in the Chicago Sun-Times suggesting there is anything approaching discord or confusion between the Bulls executive office, coaching staff, and Derrick Rose or any other Bulls player. To the contrary, I can remember no time when the organization has been any more focused, optimistic, and cohesive. I've got to assume suggestions otherwise are intended to undermine the goals and objectives, spirit, and reputation of the Chicago Bulls. I am deeply disappointed that unnamed sources and totally inaccurate statements and assumptions can be used to foment nonexistent friction. The report is totally without basis or fact. It is pure malicious fiction."
The Sun-Times interviewed Rose following his practice Thursday with Team USA in Las Vegas.
