Chicago Bulls guard Jimmy Butler has again dismissed speculation suggesting that he has issues with teammate Derrick Rose.
There was tension between the pair during the playoff series against the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to CBS Chicago.
However, Butler moved to insist that he believes they are on the same page and will support each other.
"I think he's always been supportive of me being aggressive, especially on offense," Butler said on First Take on Wednesday.
"We all know that I'll be the aggressor on defence. So from what I can tell, the guy's always been in my corner."
Butler was a first-time All-Star last season, and was named the NBA's Most Improved Player.
