Cavaliers talking contract with Derrick Rose

According to sources at ESPN, free agent point guard Derrick Rose is in talks with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Cavaliers are reportedly offering Rose a minimum contract for $2.1 million to join the defending Eastern Conference champions. The deal would put Rose as Kyrie Irving's backup and place him alongside four-time MVP and three-time National Basketball Association champion LeBron James. The move gives the Cavs a decent player off the bench, but it could still not be enough for them to beat the Warriors.

Rose averaged 18 points and 4.4 assists per game in his lone season with the Knicks. If Rose were to sign, it would be at low risk/expectations for the Cavs.

Derrick Rose was a part of the dysfunctional Knicks organization last season.


The Cavaliers signed free agent Jose Calderon last month as a backup to All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving. His season was cut short in April by a torn meniscus in his left knee. Regardless of those solid numbers, the unreliable Rose was not the answer to New York's point guard woes. But since then, his career has been plagued by injuries.

For his National Basketball Association career, the oft-injured Rose is now averaging 19.5 points, an even six assists, 3.7 rebounds and 0.8 steals per game.

Fans can only wish him the best as he wants to continue playing under his own power.
