Details on Timberwolves Trying to Trade for Derrick Rose

The NBA trade rumor mill has been getting crazy since the Sacramento Kings traded DeMarcus Cousins to the New Orleans Pelicans. The New York Knicks are now involved in a new rumor, but it doesn’t involve Carmelo Anthony surprisingly.

According to ESPN, the Timberwolves are reportedly interested in trading for Knicks point guard Derrick Rose. Rose will be a free agent this summer, and has played under current T-Wolves coach Tom Thibodeau back in Chicago.

The T-Wolves are reportedly among several teams interested in trading for Rose. They will likely offer Ricky Rubio in such a trade.

Rose could fit well at the starting point guard spot, where he would play alongside Zach LaVine (when he’s healthy), Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns.

Rose is currently averaging 17.7 points per game on 46.2 percent shooting this season. The NBA trade deadline is on Thursday at 3 p.m. EST, so we’ll see what moves get made in the next few days.
