The Derrick Rose Trade Rumors Are Heating Up

The Detroit Pistons are going to be busy as we head closer to the trade deadline in the NBA as the team has several players drawing interest from other clubs. One name that is garnering the most interest..... veteran point-guard, Derrick Rose.

The 32-year-old Rose has been coming off the bench for the Pistons behind starter Delon Wright and has been producing at a nice clip this season. So far in 12 games, Rose is averaging 14.8 points, 2.2 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game and is shooting 43.0% from the field and 33.3% from three.

While Rose isn't the same player he used to be, not many are at 32, he's capable of helping a playoff bound team make some noise in the postseason. 

Out of the two teams mentioned, there's certainly more likelihood Rose ends up with the Knicks, where he spent 64 games in 2017, averaging 18.0 points per game.  The Knicks have surprised everyone including our very own Tom Baker, and look for the Knicks and the Pistons to keep discussing a deal.
