Cavaliers talking contract with Derrick Rose

Sources: Derrick Rose talks deal with Cavs, meets with Lakers

Come home, D. Rose, come home.

News surfaced Thursday of Derrick Rose in serious talks about joining the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Cavaliers are reportedly offering Rose a minimum contract for $2.1 million to join the defending Eastern Conference champions.

Cleveland is limited in what it can offer the free agent guard, whose career has been slowed by knee injuries. He sat out the 2012-13 season with the Bulls due to injury and only played 10 games the following year.


He showed flashes of some vintage play a year ago, especially in his 30-point, 10-rebound performance against the Boston Celtics in mid-January. He averaged 18 points, 3.8 rebounds and 4.4 assists last season with the Knicks.

Derrrick Rose likely to pick team this weekend, I'm told. Williams played for the Memphis Grizzlies last season, and he was a free-agent this summer.

Signing Derrick Rose would certainly add a consistent scoring threat and playmaker to Cleveland's bench. Though only 28 years old, Rose has missed a total of 180 games since being crowned MVP.

Two options stand above all others as safe bets for the point guard: the Bulls and the Knicks. No doubt that he would be a great addition for the Cavaliers, as he would be the backup point guard for them. Rose will turn 29 in October and he still has a lot of good basketball in front of him, if he's able to stay healthy. The move makes sense for Cleveland, even if Rose doesn't address their full needs or really pull them significantly closer to the Warriors. The Lakers have the full $4.3 million room exception and can promise Rose more playing time. His three point shooting was terrible, though, at just 21.7-percent, a career low.
