Derrick Rose Signed to Timberwolves for Rest of Season

  • Report: Timberwolves Signing G Derrick Rose

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the signing has not been announced. It's also a reunion for Rose and former Bulls teammates Jimmy Butler, Taj Gibson and Aaron Brooks. According to a tweet on Thursday from senior writer Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic, Rose was expecting the arrival of his child earlier this week and was in communication with Wolves head coach Tom Thibodeau about it. Chicago traded Rose, along with Justin Holiday, to the New York Knicks in exchange for Robin Lopez, Jose Calderon, and Jerian Grant prior to the 2016-17 season.

Cleveland traded Rose to Utah, and the Jazz waived him before he played there. The 2010-11 MVP has been bothered by injuries this season and never found the right role during his time with the Cavaliers.

Rose, who said Thursday that he was close to signing with Minnesota last offseason, won't return to his MVP form, but he flashed the ability to still play past year in NY when he averaged 18 points a game. I just want to have the opportunity to show I can still play'. O'Neal spent most of his career with the Magic, Lakers, and Heat, but appeared with the Suns, Cavaliers, and Celtics in his final three seasons. However, the honeymoon ended quickly after the guard only suited up for 16 games. Of course, Jones and Jeff Teague have barely played together at all this season, so two-point guard lineups haven't been the norm. He's been in a lot of games.

"We just thought he could help the team", Thibodeau said. While history says Rose will not be able to do much with this team, some think that reuniting him with old friends may re-kindle a fire within.
