2K Sports Signs Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose as Spokesman for NBA 2K10: Draft Combine Game

2K Sports Signs Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose as Spokesman for NBA 2K10: Draft Combine Game
2K Sports announced that Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls will be featured as the spokesman for NBA 2K10: Draft Combine, a download-only title that will provide fans with a pre-season Basketball experience leading up to the fall launch of NBA 2K10.

Rose was last year's T-Mobile NBA Rookie of the Year.

"It's a great feeling to partner with 2K Sports and represent the greatest Basketball franchise on the planet," said Rose, point guard for the Chicago Bulls. "I look forward to providing my insights of what that first year in the league is really like, and what it takes to stay on top of your game. This season, NBA 2K10: Draft Combine will be a place where fans can experience the life of a player trying to make it to the NBA . The drills are challenging, and the group scrimmages are always extremely competitive with everyone looking to improve their draft stock as well. It's as real as it gets."

Rose, who led the University of Memphis to the NCAA Championship game in his freshman year, was selected the top overall pick by his hometown Chicago Bulls in the 2008 NBA Draft after only one college season. This past year, he averaged 16.8 points, 6.3 assists, and 3.9 rebounds per game and was selected to the NBA All-Rookie First Team. Additionally, Rose led the Chicago Bulls back to the NBA playoffs, and his 36 points tied Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's NBA record for the most points scored by a rookie in his playoff debut.

"Derrick is the perfect fit to be our spokesman for NBA 2K10: Draft Combine," said Greg Thomas, senior VP of sports development for 2K. "Not only is he one of the best young playmakers in the NBA , he's the pride of Chicago, where the real NBA Draft Combine is located. We look forward to working closely with Derrick this season, and are thrilled to offer our fans a brand new pre-season Basketball experience with NBA 2K10: Draft Combine."

NBA 2K10: Draft Combine, developed by Visual Concepts, is planned for release in North America, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan and India on August 26 for Xbox Live Arcade for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and North America and Korea on September 3 for the PlayStationNetwork for Playstation3 computer entertainment system.
