The Pistons were reported on Saturday to be emerging as a favorite to sign Rose, according to The Athletic’s Frank Isola. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski said the sides would meet on Sunday with a two-year contract in mind.

Rose, 30, had a career resurgence last season with the Minnesota Timberwolves. The former MVP point guard played in 51 games last season, averaging 18.0 points and 4.3 assists per game. His 37 percent mark on threes was the best of his career, while his 48.2 percent from the field was his second-best career mark.
In Detroit, Rose would compete with Reggie Jackson for minutes at point guard. Jackson is entering the final season of his deal, while Ish Smith is set to become a free agent.
