According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, he is considering his basketball future. Around this time last year, Rose left the New York Knicks and considered his future.

Rose would eventually come back to the team, despite being fined by the team. It’s not clear at this time if Rose will be suspended by the Cavaliers this time around, as well.

Rose, when he left his Knicks teammates last year, he flew back to Chicago, Illinois, because he reportedly missed his baby son. It’s not clear where Rose is this time around.

The 29-year-old Chicago native signed a one-year deal with the Cavaliers this off-season. When he signed with the Cavaliers, he was expected to be the backup point guard, behind Kyrie Irving.

But during the summer, Irving requested a trade, as he wanted to be the face of his own franchise instead of playing second fiddle to LeBron James. The New Jersey native was then traded to the Boston Celtics in a blockbuster deal in September.

Rose began the season, as the Cavaliers’ starter. But with Isaiah Thomas, who was acquired with Jae Crowder and Ante Žižić, along with two draft picks, Rose is expected to be the backup in January when Thomas returns from injury.
