Derrick Rose to sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers?

Rose, a former MVP award victor, is looking to continue his career rehab after multiple injuries.

Although, having Rose attack relentlessly off the bench when, say LeBron is resting, is exactly what this team needed last season.

Earlier on Thursday, it was reported by ESPN's Brian Windhorst that the Cavaliers were in serious talks with Rose on a one-year deal, but Rose will still reportedly meet with the Lakers.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are in a desperate need of another great player that could help them win the National Basketball Association title next season.

With an already loaded roster of point guards, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense for Rose to join the Bulls.

Rose last played for the New York Knicks where he averaged 18.0 points, 3.8 rebounds and 4.4 assists in 32 minutes per game.

But if the team does decide to sign Rose, it will still be pricey. Williams played for the Memphis Grizzlies last season, and he was a free-agent this summer.

Jan 6, 2017; Milwaukee, WI, USA; New York Knicks guard Derrick Rose (25) shoots during the first quarter against the Milwaukee Bucks at BMO Harris Bradley Center. Though only 28 years old, Rose has missed a total of 180 games since being crowned MVP.

Altman now has to deal with a surprising issue, as All-Star guard Kyrie Irving has asked the club to trade him, a person familiar with the request told the AP.

Staying with the Knicks gives Rose one more season to salvage his career and boost his value to other teams. His three point shooting was awful, though, at just 21.7-percent, a career low. The Lakers have the full $4.3 million room exception and can promise Rose more playing time.
