Derrick Rose gets into the pizza business

Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose, who is expected to miss the majority of the 2012-13 NBA season recovering from injury, has found a place to invest some money.

According to Darren Rovell of, “Deep dish pizza company Giordano’s will announce on Thursday that the Chicago Bulls point guard has become an equity partner in the restaurant franchise. “The pizza business is a cash flow machine; we just have to make it grow,” said Richard Levy, managing partner of Victory Park Capital Advisors, which bought the stalwart Chicago brand last year. So Giordano’s, which is looking to branch out from the Chicagoland area, will lean on Rose to give it a boost as it moves outside of its comfort base.”

Bulls fans just have to hope D-Rose doesn’t spend too much time sampling the product during his recovery.
