Lakers to meet with Derrick Rose on Thursday

Report: Derrick Rose In Talks To Join Cavs On 1-Year Deal

Rose has averaged 19.5 points and 6.0 assists since being drafted first overall by Chicago in 2008.

Veteran point guard and former NBA MVP Derrick Rose met with the Lakers on Thursday, per ESPN's Ramona Shelburne. Signing Rose would either be done to provide depth behind Irving or allow Irving to play off the ball more. While he's nowhere near the caliber of player he once was, he certainly has shown he can still contribute quite a bit to a team such as the Cavaliers. However, Rose still a career low from deep at 21 percent.

Rose was traded last summer from the Bulls to the Knicks, where he averaged 18 points and 4.4 assists for a NY team that ended the season 30-52.

According to USA Today's NBA Insider Sam Amick, Rose is expected to make his decision this weekend choosing between the Cavaliers, Lakers and Bulls.




Other teams, including the Los Angeles Lakers, are interested in him.

It was a odd year for Rose. The Bulls are in a full rebuild and they already have three point guards who can't hit treys, so adding another would be a head-scratching move.

Former NBA MVP Derrick Rose tries to guard LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavs.

A day after introducing their lone free-agent signing in Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, the Lakers are narrowing in on their next possible acquisition.
