Derrick Rose isn’t sure why he was traded, but he said he is grateful that the Chicago Bulls sent him to the New York Knicks.

“I would like to tell them, ‘Thank you,'” Rose said of the Bulls at Friday’s news conference introducing him as the newest member of the Knicks.

Rose, a Chicago native, elaborated on why he’d thank the Bulls for trading him to New York.

“Getting me another start,” said Rose, who played seven seasons in Chicago, missing the 2012-13 season due to injury. “I’m grateful to be where I’m at. I could have been anywhere. Not saying all the other teams are bad places, but to be in this market, to be in the city [with] the legacy, the history of basketball. … I’m grateful. I’m grateful to be here. I feel like they’re going to appreciate me a little bit more.”
