Derrick Rose Agrees to 1-Year Deal with Cavaliers, Per Report

Free agent point guard Derrick Rose has agreed to sign a one-year deal worth $2.1 million with the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to The Vertical’s Shams Charania. The move adds depth at the point guard position to a Cleveland team looking to possibly replace Kyrie Irving after he requested a trade last week.

Rose landed with the Knicks after the Chicago Bulls shipped him out of town last June. He averaged 18.0 points on a solid 47.1 percent shooting from the field, however, he also converted a career-low 21.7 percent of his threes and proved to be a sieve on defense.

“He just wants to focus on winning basketball games,” said Rose’s agent B.J. Armstrong to Haynes when asked why he picked Cleveland.

Rose suffered a minor torn meniscus last season and his new contract is a severe drop from the $21.3 million he collected from the Knicks.
