(CBS) Dwight Howard previously left the Bulls off his list of teams he would like to join, but now the All-Star center isn’t ruling out a trade to Chicago.

The Chicago Tribune reports that Howard would be open to playing with Derrick Rose, despite speculation that he didn’t want to share the spotlight with the reigning MVP.

“If I could play with Derrick right now and God wanted that to happen, it will happen,” Howard told the Tribune. “It has nothing to do with me not wanting to play with Derrick Rose. I love him. That’s my brother.”

Howard also disputed that Adidas — a sponsor he and Rose share — would prevent the two from pairing up.
