Derrick Rose has agreed to sign with Timberwolves, AP source says

09 March 2018

The 29-year-old guard will sign a contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves for the rest of the season, per Adrian Wojnarowski.

Rose will reunite with Tom Thibodeau, who coached him for several seasons with the Bulls. Jones and Rose are not very effective when playing off the ball offensively, and while Teague can be - which helps when playing alongside a healthy Jimmy Butler - taking the ball out of his hands heightens his weakness (namely, individual and team defense) while mitigating his strengths.

Rose took some time off earlier this season to evaluate his options.

Rose has been plagued by injuries in his career, but had his best season in 2010-11 with Thibodeau and the Bulls. I just want to have the opportunity to show I can still play'. After beginning the season as Cleveland's starting point guard, the 2011 MVP went on to appear in just 16 games with the Cavs and averaged 9.8 points on.439 shooting to go along with 1.6 assists. I'm not here for stats or anything like that. From Chicago, he was traded to the New York Knicks, to the Cleveland Cavaliers, to the Utah Jazz, and finally, to the Minnesota Timberwolves. "Come in, be a good teammate and try to help us win". Pretty much all Rose can do at this point is score, and the Wolves already have the third-best offense in the league, with a net rating of 111.2 points per 100 possessions.
