When President Barack Obama comes home next week for a re-election campaign fundraiser, he'll be with a bunch of old Chicago pals, including former Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and former advisor David Axelrod.

But word is the basketball-loving president will also be relying on another hot commodity: likely MVP Derrick Rose.

Rose will headline the big April 14 fundraiser at Navy Pier, the Chicago Sun-Time's Michael Sneed reported Friday.
