Rose played 2 games in the NBA for the Los Angeles Clippers in the 1988-89 season after signing a 10-day contract. He played just 3 minutes. He began his NBL career in 1992 with the South East Melbourne Magic, leading his team to the championship - which was his only one. The next year Rose would average 19 points, 9 assists and 7 rebounds on his way to the National Basketball League MVP.

From the 1994 NBL season, Rose had a two year stint with the Adelaide 36ers where he helped the team to the 1994 NBL Grand Final Series and 1995 semi-finals. Rose then signed for a three year stint with the Canberra Cannons where it appeared that his career was somewhat diminishing, although his spectacular stats would not suggest such a thing. Indeed, he was selected to the All NBL First Team in both 1996 and 1997 while in Canberra. After not enjoying any post season success with the Cannons he signed with the struggling North Queensland team of the Townsville Crocodiles.

Rose would turn the franchise around captaining them to the semi-finals and grand final in the 1999-2000 and 2000-01 seasons. Rose capped off his team's performance by winning his second league MVP award. However the Crocodiles would be defeated by the Wollongong Hawks in the deciding game three of the grand final series.

After the 2005-06 season, at age 42, the Crocodiles decided not to renew Rose's contract. He then signed with North Queensland rivals the Cairns Taipans for the 2006-07 season before retiring at the end of the year having played in 472 NBL games.
