Former NBA player Dennis Rodman is headed back to North Korea.There were reports he might try to negotiate the release of U.S. citizen Kenneth Bae, but Rodman's reactions have been mixed.

He denied the rumors to reporters in Beijing, but he told the Huffington Post last week the subject may come up.  Rodman also said if helped with the release he'd be "the most powerful guy in the world"

Bae was sentenced to 15 years hard labor in February for allegedly helping with "hostile acts" against the country. This is Rodman's second visit to North Korea this year.
