A Rose That Wilted in the Garden: Derrick's Free Agency Dissappoints

CLEVELAND OH – FEBRUARY 23 Kyrie Irving

CLEVELAND OH – FEBRUARY 23 Kyrie Irving

Free agent Derrick Rose is in talks with the defending Eastern Conference champions, ESPN says, on a contract that would bring the former MVP to Cleveland.

It was also reported that Rose met with the Los Angeles Lakers. Last season, the Cavaliers were the only team to use the exemption.

Forget the Lakers, as Rose is still a starting-caliber guard. Meanwhile, Clark also has fielded interest from Milwaukee, Minnesota and New Orleans, a source said.

It was another bad year for the Knicks as the team finished 31-51, good enough for a 12th place in the Eastern Conference. Rose coming off the bench to give Kyrie Irving some rest, to give LeBron James minutes when he doesn't need to be with the ball, and overall give the team someone an offense needs to worry about off the dribble; that's something the Cavaliers desperately need, even if he isn't ideal because of his defense.

'Justine did not have to die' says Minneapolis police chief
The article represents a shift from the way WaPo covered the fatal shooting of Philando Castile , a black gun owner, by former St. Anthony's Police Department officer Yanez. "There isn't anything that hadn't been done because I wasn't here", she said.

With an already loaded roster of point guards, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense for Rose to join the Bulls.

The Lakers continued their deliberate approach to free agency by pursuing point guards on one-year deals.

The Knicks acquired Rose last June.

He was healthy for the New York Knicks last season, but was an odd fit in the triangle offense, and was clearly not the same player that he was during his best years. Players and coaches alike weren't aware of his whereabouts. Rose averaged 18.0 points and 4.4 assists.

Israel reopens Jerusalem's Noble Sanctuary after deadly shooting
Forty Israelis, two USA tourists and a British student have been killed in Palestinian stabbings, shootings and car-rammings. It was for the first time in the past 50 years that Israel closed the compound, which is Islam's third holiest site.

Altman now has to deal with a surprising issue, as All-Star guard Kyrie Irving has asked the club to trade him, a person familiar with the request told the AP.

Rose's tumultuous season was due in part to Rose.

With career averages of 19.5 points on 45.1 percent shooting and 6.0 assists through eight National Basketball Association seasons, Rose would bolster the Lakers' backcourt by providing both production and experience. Perhaps the biggest issue for this hypothetical pairing, if it comes to fruition, is the fact that Rose is a awful three-point shooter historically.
