Rose Talks Deal with Cavs, Will Meet with Lakers

Looking to close the gap on the champion Golden State Warriors, Cleveland is in contract talks with free agent guard Derrick Rose, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press on Thursday.

The Cavaliers are reportedly in serious discussion to sign Derrick Rose. In 64 games, the former MVP averaged 18 points and 4.4 assists per game. However, there is apparently one former MVP that could do just that, and - the Cavs hope - salvage their offseason. Perhaps the biggest issue for this hypothetical pairing, if it comes to fruition, is the fact that Rose is a awful three-point shooter historically.

In 2013, Rose then injured his right meniscus and missed the remainder of the season with the Chicago Bulls.

Authorities had initially reported five deaths, but later raised the toll more bodies were found scattered throughout the prison. In March 2017, 29 accused drug cartel members allegedly tunneled their way out of a prison in Tamaulipas state.

If Rose comes off the bench for Cleveland, he could be the legitimate backup point guard the Cavs thought they were getting in Deron Williams this year. If Rose joined Milwaukee, he would be teamed up with Giannis Antetokonmpo, Khris Middleton, and the NBA Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon. But Cleveland has much more incentive to set a hard line.

That report, which came from USA Today's Sam Amick, indicates that the Bulls have spoken to Rose's agent B.J. Armstrong, and that they are one of three teams in the mix to sign him.
