Lakers Interested In Derrick Rose

Posted July 23, 2017

Rose won Rookie of the Year in 2009 and MVP in 2011 with the Bulls.

But the ultra-competitive Rose often talked last season about the importance of winning.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are considering signing Derrick Rose on a short-term deal, according to reports.

In addition to the Cleveland Cavaliers, Derrick Rose also recently spoke with the LA Clippers and Milwaukee Bucks about a potential landing spot earlier this week. But since then, his career has been plagued by injuries. Haslem was already the longest-tenured player in Heat history, with all of his National Basketball Association seasons coming for his hometown team. The Lakers are trying to entice Rose to sign with them, suggesting they can offer more playing time and money in a better environment after Rose's tumultuous season in NY, sources said.

Team officials met with Rose for about three hours, according to several news outlets.

Rose didn't choose to play for the Knicks, and was traded to NY in exchange for big man Robin Lopez and guard Jerian Grant last summer.

Rose last played for the Bulls in 2015-16, when he averaged 16.4 points per game. Rose was involved in multiple trade rumors before last season's deadline, but the Knicks ended up holding on to the oft-injured veteran.

Two options stand above all others as safe bets for the point guard: the Bulls and the Knicks.

Having Rose flank LeBron wouldn't exactly make the most sense, considering that Rose would likely need to be a paint attacker in order to be effective. Ring-chasing is never completely off the table, but Rose would be doing so while earning the lowest salary of his career.

Rose's fit with the Lakers is a little concerning and comes with a territory.
