Report: Derrick Rose in ‘serious talks’ to join Cavs
The Cleveland Cavaliers have not done a whole lot this offseason, but that could change if they sign one of the best free agent point guards remaining on the market.
Brian Windhorst and Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN are reporting that the Cavs are in “serious” discussions with Derrick Rose about a one-year contract.
Derrick Rose is in serious talks with the Cavs on a 1-year deal, sources tell @wojespn and me.

Several teams have expressed interest in Rose this offseason. While it’s impossible to predict whether or not he will remain healthy, Rose is still just 28. His talent and game-changing ability are undeniable, so it’s no surprise there are a handful of teams that are willing to give him a shot.
When he’s at his best, Rose is a floor general who creates offense with the ball in his hands. Since Kyrie Irving and LeBron James are similar in that sense, it would be interesting to see how the three players would mesh.
The most recent report we heard about LeBron is troubling for Cavs fans. Adding a former NBA MVP could cheer King James up for the time being.
