Derrick Rose, the free agent point guard, has picked his next team. He has reportedly settled on a one-year, $2.1 million deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Rose has reportedly been communicating with LeBron James throughout the process. He’ll be joining his third team in his career.
He joins the Cavaliers over choosing a free agent deal with the Los Angeles Lakers. With the Lakers, he would have backed up Lonzo Ball, the No. 2 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.
With the Cavaliers, he goes to the best-team that he’s been on in his NBA career. Cleveland has went to three straight NBA Finals, including a championship in 2016.
One-year ago, he was traded from his hometown Chicago Bulls to the New York Knicks. However, his short tenure was a disaster, including going MIA for almost a day.
Rose missed a game and was nowhere to be found in New York City. The next day, he used an excuse of seeing a sick grandfather but nobody knows exactly what happened because he also said he missed his son, who still lived in Chicago.
The 28-year-old averaged 18 points, 3.8 rebounds, 4.4 assists, 0.7 blocks and 0.3 blocks in 64 starts last season in the Big Apple. The 19 points were the most he had in a season average since having 21.8 points per game during the 2011-12 season during his 39 games.
