Report: Derrick Rose has received very little interest

Derrick Rose
Derrick Rose has received very little interest from teams as a free agent, according to a report.

Rose was traded to the Utah Jazz as part of a 3-way deal on the day of the NBA trade deadline. He was then released by Utah and is now a free agent. Three weeks later, he remains unsigned.

According to Bleacher Report’s Ken Berger, Rose is receiving very little interest from NBA teams. He says the former NBA MVP is really receiving mostly just 10-day contract offers.

From Berger:

Barring something unforeseen, multiple team executives contacted by B/R are convinced that Rose may have to wait till next year.

To this point, Rose has received a couple of 10-day contract offers, but nothing more attractive or substantial, league sources told B/R.

The deadline for teams to have their playoff rosters set has passed, meaning Rose will definitely not appear in the postseason, even if he catches on with a good team. The Timberwolves and Wizards reportedly had interest in him, but nothing has materialized.

A combination of injuries and questions over Rose’s desire to play seem to have soured teams on him.
