>> Derrick Rose Says NBA Lockout Unnecessary

Derrick Rose says the NBA lockout is unnecessary and he will consider playing overseas if it drags on.

For now, the Chicago Bulls' star hopes the season can be salvaged, but he also made one thing clear. He sees "no reason billionaires and millionaires should be arguing about money."

While negotiators for the league and players met Tuesday in New York hoping to move closer to an agreement, the league's reigning MVP was unveiling restored courts at his boyhood playground on Chicago's South Side.

Training camps have already been postponed with a week of preseason games canceled, and if the lockout extends deep into the season, he says he might join other players looking to head overseas.
