Derrick Rose may not play for the Detroit Pistons much longer. Like among other things The Athletic reported, several teams are interested in the 2011 MVP.
Rose is said to be popular with both the LA Clippers and the New York Knicks. Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau knows Rose very well from times together at the Chicago Bulls, in which Rose celebrated his greatest successes. They later also worked together for the Minnesota Timberwolves.
In Detroit, the 32-year-old has been coming off the bench since last season, currently he has an average of 14.8 points and 4.6 assists.
There had been rumors about Rose even before the 2020 trade deadline, but at the time neither he nor Detroit wanted a trade, like CUT added. Rose saw the Pistons as a potential long-term home then; since then, the Pistons have installed a new general manager in Troy Weaver who may have other plans.
As the New York Post reports, Thibodeau would like to thread a move for Rose. However, there should not have been any discussions between the Knicks (8-11) and the Pistons (4-13). Rose becomes an unrestricted free agent after the season.
